Blackberry Ramble Table Runner

September 05, 2014

Snowed under in bookwork lately and no time to quilt, don't you hate paper work.             I thought I would take a wee break and share some pictures of my Blackberry Ramble Table Runner. The pattern is now available as a downloadable PDF. Maybe you have already seen this table runner as it has also been in Quilters Companion magazine earlier this year.

Invisible Machine Applique with turned edges has been used to applique this table runner, you will find my instructions on how I do this included in this and all my applique patterns. Over at Amy's Free Motion Quilting blog she shares her tips on using monofilament thread. It's great information and worth sharing. Have you had problems with your monofilament thread ? Happy Stitching Sharon
