Default Finished first applique project (just in time for Christmas)

While having our house built over the past year, I got to know a couple of quilters where we were renting. One was a big fan of applique and suggested this project for last year's holiday effort. Well, I did get the materials, but never did get set up to sew anything.

I've never done any applique before, so had to buy a book to learn. I know I made mistakes along the way, or perhaps let's call them "modifications" to the techniques, but I am thrilled that I finally finished this and barely in time for Christmas. Boy, that was a lot of quilting in a small space!

That is a beautiful table runner. You did a great job on it and I think you have the art of applique mastered already
