A Victorian Taste Of Morocco...

reverse applique pattern - hand and machine directions

(20" x 60")

Inspired by the stenciled walls of an 1878 Opera House and the twined patterning of Moroccan rugs and tapestries, this pattern, like the Victorian Era itself, combines detail with an Asian flair.  Bring the Victorian's aesthetic into your dining room with Marrakesh table runner V. Create it in spicy colors, autumn colors or give it a cool splash with blues and purples.  Pattern has complete creation instructions using Eye of the Beholder’s Trace, Baste, Snip & Stitch technique, supported by Technique Tutorials and blogs on this website, and full-size, durable pattern pieces.  There’s never a need to enlarge the pattern or re-position fabric. Just tape the two halves together.

Try it with lovely fabrics from Timeless TreasuresIsland Batik  or Dianne Springer designs or your favorite fabrics.
