Reverse Appliqued Snowflake Table Runner

Here is a reverse-appliqued table runner I made for my house for the winter.

Shown here on a bench because my table is a disaster.

To make this start with a piece of your main fabric (mine was a duponi silk in grey/silver).  Back it with Wonder-Under (a double-sided fusible interfacing that is paper-backed so you can fuse one side at a time).  On the Wonder-Under, draw your snowflake shapes and then cut them out with sharp scissors.

Remove the paper backing.  Carefully place the main fabric on top of your accent fabric (both fabrics have right-side-up.  You are fusing the right side of the accent fabric to the back side of the main fabric).  Iron to fuse.

Next I sewed a backing fabric on to the runner.  I placed my backing fabric on top of the runner, right-sides of my backing fabric touching right-sides of the main fabric.  I sewed all the way around, leaving a gap to turn the runner right-side out.  I did not include batting, but you could if you wanted a thicker runner.

Once it was right-side out, I did a quilted stippling design.

Yay!  I have to say I really love this one.
