Putting Daisies on the Sunflower Tablecloth

I've had this tablecloth for years, bought because we have a gold dining room and it was big enough to cover our table with 2 boards in it.  But I was never fond of the sunflowers.  Too. . . obvious. . . too standard.  Or something.

But I wondered if I could applique something on top to help the print.  I dug through my stash and ended up with these big daisies in a similar colorway.  I simply ran a line of machine stitching close to the edge of each cutout.  It's understated meddling, and I like the whimsical results.

This is something I would do too! The daisies perk it up, don't they?

They do blend in very well. Good thought!

I had to go back and look at the first picture again to try and see where the appliques were because they blended so well. I like it!

"Understated meddling" - what a great turn of phrase!
