Very pretty Cat Lady. 

Diana, I'm happy to hear you are enjoying Mimi Dietrich's class.  She has a really nice teaching style.

Gorgeous, Cat Lady!! Your appliqué and quilting are superb, as are your fabric and color choices!

It has been some time since I have done any needleturn appliqué, but I was able to work on and finished this runner today.

My adaptation of "On a Limb" designed by Mary Warner-Stone (directions in the December 2016-March 2017 issues of "The Quilt Pattern Magazine" http://www.quiltpatternmagazine.com/ ). The original pattern consists of nine appliquéd blocks, but I chose to make only three and use them for a table runner.

Hand appliquéd and hand quilted with a 1/2" grid in the background, and a tight wood grain design in the borders. Finished at 20" x 50".

Good morning! Welcome Diana - sounds like you've already gotten some very good advice! I've been loving applique for about 30 years and am still learning. I especially have trouble with sharp points, but workin' on it!

Thank you for all of your nice comments.  I checked out Mimi Dietrich's applique class and signed up and so far it has been great.  Thanks.

Piece O' Cake has some great videos on their website and on you tube. Becky Goldsmith does a great job explaining needleturn applique.

Welcome Diana.  I would also highly recommend you sign up for Mimi Dietrich's applique class on Craftsy.com.  She is really good at addressing different issues that come up with applique.

Good Morning, Diana, and welcome!  You'll find this a very helpful group.  I would suggest slightly smaller seam allowances for your small shapes because there just isn't room for any extra fabric in there.
