BLOGGERS’ QUILT FESTIVAL SPRING 2011

The Bloggers’ Quilt Festival: Spring 2011 is on. Hundreds of bloggers are showing one of their quilts and telling the story behind it. This is the quilt I’d like to present: 
El Festival de Blocaires de la Primavera 2011 s’esta celebrant. Centenars de blocaires estan presentant un dels seus quilts explicant la historia que hi ha al seu darrere. Aquest es el que jo presento:
I made it last summer, for my daughter.
El vaig fer l’estiu passat per la meva filla.
We moved into a new home and I wanted to make something new for her room.
Vam canviar de casa i volia fer alguna cosa nova per a la seva habitacio.

I used a charm pack of Arcade with a beige sashing and Little Woodlands for the backing.
Vaig fer servir un charm pack d’Arcade i roba de Little Woodlands pel darrere.

She used it for her naps, and now she likes siting on it while she’s playing.
El va fer servir molt per les migdiades, i ara li agrada seure-hi quan esta jugant.
Now this cot is a toddler’s bed, and I’m afraid I’ll have to make a new one.
Aquest bressol ja s’ha convertit en un llitet aixi que haure de fer-li un altre quilt.
I remember making this quilt top in one afternoon, but the basting took a bit longer. It was the first time I would bast and although it is a small one my knees were really sore…
I did the quilting with the walking foot I had recently bought. I sew straight lines along the borders of the sashing straps and a zig-zag on the Arcade fabric straps.
I love the colours of this quilt and I think it really matches with my little girl’s personality, lively and bright.
Recordo que vaig fer els quilt en una tarda, pero l’embastat de les tres peces em va costar molt mes. Encara que es petit, els genolls se’m van quedar molt adolorits…
Vaig fer l’encoixinat amb el peu nou que vaig comprar. vaig cosir linees rectes seguint la vora de les tires blanques i un zig-zag a sobre de les tires de colors.
M’encanten els colors que te aquest quilt, penso que li va molt be a la Hana perque es tan viu com ella.
