On Point Table Runner
The bias stems were added with a machine blindstitch. I appliqued the flowers down and then applied the tendrils with my new #43, free motion couching foot. Now that was an experience. I practiced and practiced and then tried some on the runner and ripped it out several times. Finally, I settled for what you see. It's pretty cool and works great, I just don't know how tendrils wind around naturally!
Three-D leaves were supposed to be added along the vines and it definitely needs them. Either that or I should have made the vines shorter. I used my great embroidery attachment to do the quilting. You can't see it but there are feathers quilted on it. As soon as I can learn to hoop the sandwich easier, I will be so much happier, because I love the end result!!
This is not my favorite piece, but I did learn how to do some new things and I do love doing new things!
