This is what I have been working on. My first table runner.
I found the pattern in one of my Australian country craft magazines. I love piecing and applique together in a quilt. I used 5" charms from my stash.
So now I have to add the leaves and vines - the vines are embroidered chain stitch. I used my GO! Baby and Rose of Sharon die for the flowers and leaves. I used 24 flowers instead of 36 as in the pattern - they are much smaller. I have two finishes. I hand quilted my two mini quilts
Lately it has been kind of hectic here. My son and daughter flew home for my husbands birthday. Lots of entertaining family and friends, a huge family reunion, three funerals and lots of shopping with my daughter.
Now I'm happy to get back to my sewing. I hope all mom's had a wonderful Mothers Day!
