Applique table runner flimsy finish

I have had this needle turn applique table runner, (Spring Blooms pattern by Norma Whaley) on the go for two years.  Its fine to have a cart around project, but I seem to forget to cart it around!
 All I needed was some leaves on the border.  So after one day at my sewing group I had stitched on 23 leaves, leaving just one more to stitch down later in front of the TV.  
 I trialled a scrap of purple for a circle flower and that worked well. 
So I have continued the scrappy theme and got to work on the rest of "flowers".  
Sew it wasn't much of a leap to piecing the blocks to get a flimsy.
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. Lovel Sue, looks just like a little garden.

  2. A very sweet design. Nice work!

  3. Liking the look of that runner....

  4. Perfect for when spring rolls around again. I smiled at your comment about your cart around projects. I do that too.

  5. I think I might need to sew smaller projects so that I have more finishes. Most of my PHD's are large or complicated.

  6. This projects totally deserves to be pulled out and worked on again Sue! Lots of scrappy goodness!

  7. What a sweet runner! Beautifully done. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Great use of your fabrics.... those snowballs are so effective... and the little finishes are lovely too - it's a nice feeling using up blocks lying around isn't it...
