    I designed these two

    First one is a celtic bars table runner.

    I used premade 1/4 inch fusible tape that I ironed in place following the pattern that I pinned on my ironing board. The hand appliqued it in place.

    You can't see it in the picture, but it is hand quilted in 3/4 inch cross hatching.

    The other one is appliqued using my very small stash of Liberty of London fabrics for the tea pot and cups. Haven't got this one quilted yet.

    That happens a lot-to all of us-so don't worry about it!

    Your celtic design is beautiful and I will have to share your tea cup quilt with my tea loving friend-she will want to make one too! Cute!

    Tea pot and cups is great! The table runner is fascinating--great effect. Was it difficult?

    These were all done with needle turn applique.
    You could do the same with any applique technique..ie. fusible, machine...

    Sorry, I mis-read your question...

    Difficult? yes and no.

    It was a little difficult to figure out the process, but once I did, it is very easy with a little guidance.

    Those little curves with 1/4" bias were the trouble, but the fusible bias was a dream. Once it was ironed in place, just sew, sew, sew.

    What you cant see in the pic is that the bias weaves over and under itself at each crossing.

    Well, Im American, but have Irish in every single ancestry line going back to 1800. Can find much before that as they dont have good records in Ireland. Ill be going back to do a little research one day.

    Absolutely gorgeous!! Love them both for different reasons. The Celtic Bars is quietly elegant and the tea cups is sweetly whimsical!

    Super job! :thumbup:

    Both are very nice designs. Is'nt it fun to create our own sometimes? Keep up the creative work.

    Beautiful Judy. I love the celtic design. I'd like to try that someday :D . There is just so much on my "I'd like to try that someday" list! The tea cups are really cute too.
