Lil Twister Table Topper

I finished this last week but couldn't show you becasue I didn't want to spoil a surprise.
I made this table runner for my friend Shelley who lives in Australia.


Can you guess her favourite colour is purple?

Of course I had to 'decorate' it with some of my flowers......

I used a fusible bias for the stems and made some leaves with a matching fabric.





In  the border I quilted skinny billowing feathers..... my favourite obsession at the moment.
I hope Shelley will love her birthday present.
I'm planning a full day of sewing today, so off I go!
See you all next time.
Rhianon.

Linking this post to Quilt Matters, M R is hosting this weeks TGIFF and also Sarah's blog, Confessions of a fabric Addict for Can I get a Whoop Whoop ?  That should sort out your eye candy for the day!

So, sooo pretty once again, Rhianon. :) She surely LOVES this. I really like the way you quilted the mini twisters in the center, and the 3D applique is gorgeous.
