Finito!

The table runner above probably looks kind of familiar, but it’s actually a first.  It’s a variation of  a fern table runner I made a few months ago, but it’s a bit wider and the distance between the 2 sides of ferns is a bit wider as well.  Here’s a close up of this new one:

The ruler work was all done using the PTD 12 arc ruler and the main thread is Glide.  The loop-d-loop in the background edges was done using Invisifil.  This was because I just wanted a texture there and wanted to avoid drawing attention to that stitching.  This next shot shows the 2 table runners next to one another:

I am chuckling because I can hardly tell them apart when they’re together, yet I was REALLY bothered by the width of that first table runner and that’s what made me re-create it with a different layout!  Here’s a closeup of the two together:

I still like the wider one better, even though the difference is kind of subtle!   This is a machine embroidery applique design (meaning it’s done on an embroidery machine) that I originally designed as a border design but I like how the design works with the mirror image ferns across from one another.  I’m hoping to have this pattern available by Christmas.

    I’m in love. This is so gosh darn gorgeous. I think they are both lovely, but I actually like the one that is slightly wider too! So elegant. Glad to know you are going to release a pattern for this. I think it would also be a great workshop too!
