I recently started a small winter table runner, but have come up with a challenge about what to put at the ends.

My original plan was to put the cardinal print at each end.  This print has a black background with some small random white dots, so I thought it would work well with the black and white snowflake prints.

Then I was going to put some rickrack along the edge where the main part and the ends meet.

But I'm not sure I like the cardinal print with the rest of the runner, so I thought maybe black on the ends would be better,

with the white rickrack.
I do like it better than the cardinals.

Then I thought maybe using black rickrack might work okay with the cardinals.  With the black rickrack, I don't mind having the cardinals on the ends as much as I did with the white.  But if I use black, I'll need to get a wider piece than this one. 

But I think I still like the black on the ends best, maybe using black rickrack instead of white.

So, until I make a final decision, this runner remains on my design wall.

  1. This looks like a good design choice to me. The black rickrack gives it spazz. and makes it comfortably alive.!

    1. I am tending to agree with you. I like the black rickrack rather than the white.
