Finally this last week I did some simple machine quilting in the center and I echo quilted around the applique with my walking foot (LOTS of turns :0)
And now it can go back on my dresser so I can enjoy it - finished!
I started with a lovely pattern by Marcie of Patchalot Patterns. Now that I've finished my variation I want to make it again only this time make the actual pattern with all the borders and cornerstones :0)
Here it is back on my dresser. I'm sure it will do a great job of protecting the finish on the top of the dresser. At least that's what I'm going to tell my husband it's for :0)
I haven't forgotten about the giveaway. I'll get to it soon. I just have a rather busy week this week.
