I started this project before Christmas and have put the finishing touches to them this week. This is the very first applique quilting I have ever done. The design in the centre of the table cover was adapted from a magazine - and cut in half for the runner. The small flowers around the edge is my own design. I think that you can just about see that the quilting is in a sunray on the background and follows the shape of the leaves.

I made an octagonal cover as I was not confident I could make a perfect circle. The final picture shows work in progress before any quilting was done. This was all machine work apart from stitching down the edging on the back of both items.

Thank you for all the lovely comments. I had such fun working out how I was going to make and finish these. I can't plan a design in total before I start, all my work evolves as it goes along, And I can say, very modestly, I am (almost) totally happy with the finished result
I have given all you lovely cuties a flower!
