Mimi's quilt along stash buster
I just finished the table runner top that I blogged about yesterday. I am loving this so much. The pattern shows appliquéd cherries but I knew that wouldn't work with this color combination. I thought and thought and did some internet searching and then finally realized this fabric reminds me of candy. So I've decided to appliqué wrapped candy into the centers. I spent some time trying to find a free pattern on the internet when I remembered that I had a book of appliqué that I bought for something like 50 cents when Hancock Fabrics went out of business. Sure enough, there are candy patterns. I'm trying to decide how to appliqué. There is an amazing machine appliqué tutorial on Sew, Momma, Sew which makes me want to give it a try. I think I'll have to do a little practicing first.
