Table Runner with Water Lilies

Another busy week has passed and I'm a bit later than intended with this post but i hope you enjoy it anyway.
I made this table runner last week as a birthday gift for my twin brother:


He's quite a house proud guy and likes nice things so I thought this would look good on his table.
He loved it!


The water lily flowers were quite challenging to put together - tough on the fingers and I wear thimbles !


I used 3 rounds of petals and for the center I covered the hole with a Suffolk puff (yo yo) and then used Funky fur yarn to crochet a small strip and sew it into a ball.



I made the leaves padded and free motion quilted them down onto the main piece.




I've also been busy with a few other projects - another owl cushion......

........this will be an ipad cover.....

                                                            ... and this one too. 

I also found time to start quilting a pineapple blossom quilt top that I made for my youngest daughter Ursula.
As luck would have it, it matches her newly decorated bedroom.  It had been a UFO for quite a while so it's time it was finished .

I have a lot of sewing to get through this coming week so lots to show you next time hopefully.
Thanks for visiting.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone.
Rhianon.
