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....
