|Christmas Rose Table Topper|
I used a charm pack plus yardage for the center and triangles on each end. The pattern is from "That Patchwork Place" Charmed, I'm Sure by Lesley Chaisson. I have enjoyed doing a bit of applique, which has not until recently been at the top of my interest list, but I think that I will attempt more in the near future! I machine stitched the applique pieces to the background fabric using a buttonhole stitch and did a bit of quilting in the leaves and flowers to accentuate the shapes.
These close-ups show the quilted swirls around the borders and free form feathers in the triangles.
I hope you have enjoyed this post. I'll be back tomorrow with some appliqued mug rugs.
