Curves class again. It’s keeping me busy! This is the last of the ‘improv curves’ for the class and we will be moving on to ‘precise curves’, which has me pretty nervous, because y’all know I am NOT a precision seamstress.
Anyways, on to this last improv assignment – the rainbow road table runner. This may have been the most FREEING sewing experience I have ever had. I didn’t have much of a plan going into it – I just cut up a bunch of solid scraps that I had, sewed them together in completely random order and hoped for the best! I’m so used to sewing being very structured, and this was structured to a degree, but still very open to interpretation and design.
Sorry to say I can’t tell you what all of the solids are which the exception of kona cotton snow, medium grey, grass green and corn, everyday organic solids ivory, maize and grey. Everything else was purchased from a reuse center so I was getting some grandma smelling whiffs as I was ironing. Is that mothballs or something? Yuck!
The binding is Michael Miller’s Ta Dot in Stone and the back is some ikea fabric I inherited from a friend. I did use the Stitched in Color’s zigzag binding tutorial to bind the table runner. I did find out that I need to use a ball point needle for sewing zigzag through the binding. Otherwise it would skip the left stitch and sew a straight line. Thank goodness I figured out a solution, because that was driving me nuts! I had mixed results with the zigzag binding, due to my own inaccuracies (I will reiterate: I am NOT a precision seamstress), but I think I might prefer to bind by hand… Something cathartic about finishing a project by hand.
I am loving my new walking foot, it was a lot of fun to sew these angled quilting lines throughout the project. Can’t wait to use that thing more – I have a lot of plans for it!
The table runner is so very festive and springy on our table right now – makes me very happy! And it is the first and only table runner in our house!
