FNSI My Project Is Ready To Bind
I have been an embroidery and sewing maniac for the past couple of months. I need to post an update on my Christmas Town wall quilt, but will save that for a separate post.
For FNSI, I continued to work on my Christmas Table Runner. I pieced it a couple of weeks ago, with only an idea of how I was going to make it and no idea of how I was going to quilt it.
I have to say that a project with a plan definitely finishes nicer than a project without a plan.
This was my first attempt at piecing pinwheels, and I think I did a great job matching the points.
I started out making red & white and green & white pinwheels.
When I got ready to put them together, I felt like they were missing something, so I made red and green pinwheels to add to the mix.
After doing a few areas, I realized it was a bit much, but did not want to rip out what I had done, and did not want to change the design so I kept at it. Also, I should have used a monofilament instead of white in the red and green areas.
It is heavily quilted, not so neat, but again, it is a learning project, so it gave me plenty of beginner experience with the quilting. It is now ready to bind.
I plan to use the red that is in the pinwheels for the binding. I will add a photo here later, after it is finished. I really like the size of it for my dining room table.
Since it was a learning project, I won’t worry about actually using it on the table for Holiday dinners.
