Material Requirements for April 20th's Meeting...

Deb Bayles will be teaching a simplified Table Runner technique, Tube to Tablerunner.  This is the technique she was taught in a class by Caryl Jensen last year.

April Table Runner Material needed: 
Instructor--Debbie Bayles

A.  6.5 inches WOF (44") main fabric - 1 strip
B.  2 inches WOF - accent - 2 strips
C.  1 inch WOF - second accent - 1 strip
(B & C should stand out, but compliment A)

There are borders (1 or 2) also, which usually are done with the accent strip colors.  I believe you can do the borders with 3 strips  (I did a 1" followed by a 2").

The back is done with either the main fabic or one of the borders.  Could do anything complimenting the runner too (plain)

(When I took the class, we brought 1 yard of each fabic we liked.  Then we made 3 table runners.  I think they should just try the technique before buying material.  If they have 3 fabrics they like and can use 3 table runners (gifts?) then great.  But the main thing they need is the list above in bold.  I can talk about embelishments.  I'll have to make a sample up as I gave all mine away as gifts.  Maybe I'll do an Easter or 4th of July theme or both if i have the time.)
