That's O.K. because it's my table runner so I am probably going to do what I want to anyway.
I decided that I did not like the double row of gifts so I eliminated the bottom row. I did add a 3-inch border after the gift row so that the runner would finish at 12 inches high. I find that to be a good size for my table.
I had thought that this time I would leave a square edge. But when I got to this point, I decided that it would be worth the effort to design a triangular end. I just can't get over the feeling that the runner looks unfinished if it is left square.
Now I just need to add the backing and enough quilting to hold it all together.
