What materials did you use? White Cotton/Poly Fabric for the runner, and a lining of Black and White Geometric Cotton Print. Black Embroider Machine Thread.

What are you most proud of? Instead of black paint and drop cloth, I used my general purpose sewing machine and embroidery machine. My version is 63" long by 13 "wide on soft white cotton/poly fabric. Stitching all the ruler marks and following up with machine embroidering black numeral 1 through 7. The runner (back) is lined with a contemporary black and white geometric cotton print. Its handsome, superbly made, and ready for your table. Be sure to look at the matching Wine Tote No. 7 I made from the same soft white cotton/poly fabirc. Happy entertaining!

Your runner is very nice. I plan on making this also. I purchased the stencil for the numbers and some canvas. I may reconsider the canvas after seeing the "soft" look of your runner.
