Another Whatever Wednesday! Not quite as manic this week, but busy in the sewing room for sure! I was out most of Monday with friends and running errands, so once I got home I didn’t do a lot. But Tuesday was a day to get it done! And I tried, oh how I tried. I was quilting on the Lucky One table runner and ready to throw it out the window! Let’s just say those bulky seams did not do well with Gigi.
Gigi is a sensitive gal, she does not like lumps and bumps and thick seams! So when I would try to go one direction, she was having none of it! My quilting looks horrific! I was also using a light gray thread, and it doesn’t quite blend in as well as I hoped on the light background. PLUS! I had to use different background fabrics, and while the white I used for the outer border looked fine when I was adding it, at different angles and under certain lighting, you can tell the two fabrics are not the same! Argh!!! So, while I was flying high from the piecing, I am brought low by the quilting and fabric choices. But I will not cry, I will just put it on the table and smile and act like nothing’s wrong!
To show you how bad it is, Mini Cooper wouldn’t even look at it, it was so revolting!
I figure after throwing it in the washer and dryer it will just show texture and color, the quilting just might not be so obvious?
And that’s my 2021 March Table Scraps project! Head over to The Joyful Quilter to see all the pretty toppers!
