Table Runner

Happy Thursday to everyone, the weekend is almost here!  I would love to show you a newly completed table runner which has found it's place on our dining room table and of course Snowball whose place is definitely not on the dining room table!

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.

Happy quilting,



  1. Beautiful, I really like the fabric, used the same for the quilt I made my mom, Jelly Sandwich. Your quilting is exquisite!

  2. This is gorgeous Carolyn! The appliqué and the quilting are stunning! Thank you for sharing! ~Jeanne

  3. Stopped by on Marelize's suggestion. She's right - fantastic and quite beautiful. I'll be coming back to check it out in the future. Feel free to check me out too - theboredzombie.com.

  4. What a beautiful runner! I love the applique flowers and the circular and feather quilting stitches you used.
