PATCHWORK III

EL PROJECTE INTERMINABLE

THE NEVER ENDING PROJECT

Qui no te un projecte inacabat? o un d’aquells que vas comenc,ar fa segles i no hi ha manera de trobar el temps per reemprendre la feina (tot i que trobes temps per comenc,ar-ne d’altres!).
Doncs aquest es el meu. Un quilt que vaig comenc,ar fa 3 anys, inspirant-me en una exposicio que va fer una coneguda amb tots els seus quilts preciosos. N’hi havia un que estava fet amb roba treta de camises de segona ma. Vaig pensar que era una bona idea, i barata, d’obtenir roba. Aixi que vaig anar a totes les botigues de caritat de Galway agafant les camises d’home de 100% coto. Acostumen a ser XL o XXL, fantastic perque aii n’hi ha mes!, i la majoria son de tons blavosos (ja m’anava be pel que volia).

 



Who hasn’t got an unfinished project? or one of those that you started ages ago and you never seem toget the time to go back to it, although you manage to find the time to start new ones!
Well, this is my neverending project: a quilt that I started 3 years ago. I was inspired by a friend who held an exhibition of all her quilts. I saw one made out of second hand men’s shirts and I thought that was a good and economical way of getting fabric.
So I went down to all the charity shops in Galway in search of men’s shirts. They’re normally XL or XXL, which is good becase you get quite a bit of fabric, and they’re normally blueish (that’s what I wanted).

El meu quilt esta fet amb blocs d’estels d’Ohio:





My quilt is made out of Ohio Star :





blocks and Snowball blocks:

De moment tinc feta la meitat del panel de blocs. Aqui podeu veure per on aniran els tiros:
At the moment I have half of the blocks panel. Here you can see how it’s going to look like:

Despres de visitar tants blogs aquests darrers dies, m’han inspirat molt els que son dedicats al patchwork i m’he decidit a acabar-lo. Ja anire editant aquest post perque veieu el progres.
After visiting so many blogs over the last few days, I have been inspired by those related to patchwork and I have promised myself that this time I will finish my quilt. I’ll be editing this post so you can see my progress.
