Hi,

I'm usually the one that reads a lot of the posts but hardly ever contributes something myself, but tonight I'm at a loss.  I have created a new table runner using the Seminole Table Runner pattern.  When I lay the runner out flat, the edges pucker.

The center of the runner is fine; it's laying flat.  The outside is not.  How do I fix this?  The border that is on it is the inner, small border.  Another wider border is supposed to be put on, but I don't want to sew it on until the whole thing lays properly.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for your help,

Kathy, it looks great! I'm glad you mentioned the pointed ends & got help with that.  Thanks for posting a pic of the runner - and you :-)
