The January project for My Lucky Quilting Club is finished!
It was a lesson for me in multiple things. The January MLQC lesson was in making and using bias tape. That was a good lesson. Not only did I learn about the process, I learned about the different tools and which brand I like better. I also learned how to stretch the tape, just a bit, to apply it neatly and without too many puckers on the curves.
So, as noted in previous posts, I decided to make a table runner, rather than the 9-block top suggested. Since I am a fairly new quilter, I decided to also try the quilt-as-you-go process. I really enjoyed quilting the individual blocks. I decided to stay with a modern theme and follow the random lines of the tape. Now, joining the squares should be pretty easy. I must need more practice on this. However, by the fourth joint, I did not have to pull any stitches out! Yay!!!
I felt the greys needed some color, so I chose the modern print with blue and green. It does add some pop to it, but do you think it is too much? I am basically happy with the way the runner turned out. It does not match our décor well, but will remain at our house. I am not that happy with the joining of the squares to put it in my Etsy Shop!
I still think the name “Chaos” fits well. What do you think? I have a tough hide and can take (and would appreciate) your input!
