Sewing Two Table Cloths Together?

I have two table cloths that I would like to piece into a double-sided table runner (they are too short for my table). I am a seriously novice sewer, so I am not sure how to sew the edges together to make it neat, or if I should use a binding like cord. Also, because of the two fabrics, should I put quilt batting inside to retain shape?

One side will be "visa" fabric in ivory, and the other is a cotton (india) print; rust color with ivory reindeer. I may put a floral embroidery patch (not handmade!) on the ivory side to use during non-holiday months or in spring/summer.

Thanks!

i've not worked much with visa but i've always heard you shouldnt sew two different types of material together for washing and shrinking differences.
that said, if you still want to try it, i would use a blanket binding or tape to finish the edges. if you are comfortable trying the edging stiches on the sewing machine they look nice too.
