Embroidery:
Mark the position of the embroidery. We used the designs from the Spring Vines Set and positioned them in the "openings" of the squares.

Stabilize the chosen areas. Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the designs one by one.
Quilting and Finishing:
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all layers together.
We quilted in a free-motion style all over the table runner.
