Please note, our sample is finished in the Lt'l Bit Brighter Orange back and binding. You will square up the panel to your desired size. I sometimes use Cotton Batting and sometimes I use Insul Bright if I want to use the runner as a huge potholder to protect the tabletop. This is a great top to use on that picnic table on your next BBQ. And....used at Halloween with a black pot full of candy...very cute idea!!!!
