It's a GO!.... Project and Winner!

Hello Everyone,

First, I would like to thank all of you who took the time to enter my GO! giveaway and become new followers of my blog. I am still busy visiting all the new blogs to me!! Very much fun!! I hope that you will all enjoy my blog too and keep coming back for good quilty inspiration.

Anyway, last time I showed you the braid tutorial using the chisel shape from the GO! cutter. I finished the project. Well, just the top. So technically it isn't quite done yet. I need to quilt it. So I would like to share the results with you.



As you can see I used these wonderful 1930s fabrics and paired them with Kona Cotton White. A classic pair.


Here is the entire runner done! You can see here that I decided to have one braid go up and one braid go down.


Here is a closer look at the braid direction. I like the look of this and think they would make a great border on a larger quilt too. Don't you think?


I chose to finish the top off with triangles on the ends. This will end up on a dresser in our guest bedroom and I like the look of the triangles rather than a squared off edge. What do you think?

Okay, so I know I have made you wait through this post, so drumroll please....



Mr. Random Number Generator picked #1430 out of 1633 comments... WOW! Thank you again to all who entered. But there is only one winner and that is Deborah of Adventures in Ceredo! Congratulations Deborah!!

But WAIT, don't forget to enter the other giveaway that I have going on right now. Just go here for all the details.

Until Next Time...

Congrats to your winner. Your runner is lovely. After you posted the tutorial and got ME straight about making the braid, it was fun and easy, too. I went back and forth in my head about whether to turn the two braids in opposite directions or not....then didn't. But I did put strips of fabric between them like you did with the white strip.

Thank you so much! I am so excited, and I can't believe that I won! WooHoo!! I love your braid tutorial!

Congrats Deborah!

Love the table runner! I agree that the triangles are much better than the squared off ends. I think it helps the visual flow from the runner to the floor.

It is very cute with the braids turned either way. 30's with white always looks so fresh and cheerful!

Hopefully things will calm a bit for you now! Congrats to the winner. Love that idea for a border.

Meagan said...

Oh I LOVE the braids! And I agree that the triangles look better than squared off edges, especially since braids naturally make that angle anyway... I will have to keep this in mind for the next baby blanket I need to make!

Cathie in UT said...

Congrats Deborah and have fun with the cutter! Love the braided idea...the 30's prints and white look so good together!
