I am once again hurrying to finish up a couple of gifts for Valentine's Day. Sort of a last minute whim.I dug this runner out of the closet this past weekend for the dining table and it gave me a plan to make one for my daughter and granddaughter.My color choice was reds and pinks instead, as I have a good stash of scraps in those colors.A quick trip around the fused hearts with a blanket stitch. This is my favorite machine appliqué method especially if I am rushed. I really can go at a pretty good speed. The appliqués on the larger runner are complete and the smaller one is ready to get hearts fused on. So given a day or two to spray baste and quilt and get the bindings on I should have them on their tables before the end of the week.
Yes, I got the middle tree fixed from last week's post. It is all quilted and bound. Once finished I am much happier with it than I thought it would finish up.This is Madilyn the pea hen. She is the my daughter's only female peacock. She has 4 males that are very busy romancing her with no success at all. She really is a beauty, no wonder the boys are all crazy about her.
