Blackberry Flowers table placemat or doily.

After having made the round doily with the beautiful blackberry flowers, I wanted to make this placemat as well, and it can be used as a doily too. I have used two designs from the Embroidery Favourites collection by Sue Box.

Hello Lidia, This doily is absolutely delightful! Excellent stitch-out, colour choices and perfect finishing. I have been watching your items coming up on Sue and Peter's Newsletters and you certainly do their designs the utmost justice. I have this set that I have not stitched as yet and you have certainly inspired me! Congratulations!! Kind regards, Bev

Another beauty...Your doilies have inspired me a lot Lidia and I have just started trying out some designs. The frame is very pretty and I love the corners. Hugs...Shyam.

I got the Suebox mail and before reading it thought it was your project, given the roses. Beautiful work!

Wow thats so beautiful Lidia :)
Which machine do you have with that big hoop??
Is it possible to get this done using a 5×7?
I love the edges .....they have come out so well!
Great job :)

Thank you, Fatima :)
My machine is a Husqvarna Viking Topaz 30 and its largest hoop is 360x200mm (14.1/4 x 8" approx.). This table place mat measures 292x199mm (11.51x7.83") and I have stitched it out in one hooping only. I don't have experience with a 5x7" hoop. You could download Sue Box's Project Instructions titled Joining Borders and Corners, method 'First Stitch-Last Stitch' which is offered free of charge until Monday 30th March to the Embroidery Friends who have an approved account with them. Also, you could try stitching the designs out onto a ready-made table place mat, as an internal decoration. Just a suggestion....
Hugs, Lidia

This is the first one of your projects that I saw in an email from Sue Box Designs. It inspired me to order that set. I still have not tackled the placemat because I was dreading trying to match it up in several hoopings. However, now that I have read your explanation of the size, I will be able to make it in one hooping in my largest hoop 9.1 x 11.8 for my new Janome machine. Thanks for the excellent explanation.
