Stars and Bars Table Runner, Under Construction

Greetings blog followers!

I have the center applique section of the table runner finished.  Here's the progress so far:

To secure the appliques, I used Heat N Bond Lite, then used a small zig-zag stitch to cover the raw edge.  The fabric and this runner has a country like feel to me, and I felt the zig-zag stitch worked better than a blanket stitch.  I feel pretty comfortable that it will hold up well...this will not see much wear and tear (I hope!).  It's main job is to cover the bare coffee table top and to look pretty!

I'll be taking a short break for a few days, but will get back to sewing again next week.  Denis and I are taking a long weekend. 

Until next time...
