TUTORIAL, a quick and easy quilt , un quilt rapid i facil

Nell is Hana’s best friend, or besht fend, as she calls her. This quilt is for Nell and it was supposed to be finished the day after I started  piecing it. The same day Nell came for a sleep over. It’s pretty easy to make and very quick, but my machine decided to lock up and I couldn’t finish the quilting, and I was almost finished! I have a second machine that a friend lent me, so I could finish it a couple of days later.
today Hana is going for a sleep over (her very first sleep over!!!) at Nell’s and she’ll bring this as a present.


Nell was asking me was it a “magic quilt”. I said: of course! I only know how to make magic quilts and they are the best because you will only have nice dreams when you sleep under one of them. 
She went: wooooow…



La Nell es la millor amiga de la meva filla. Aquest quilt es per la Nell i se l’havia d’endu la setmana passada quan va venir a dormir a casa. No el vaig poder acabar perque se’m va bloquejar la maquina de cosir. Es molt facil i rapid de fer, i el vaig poder acabar un parell de dies despres amb la maquina que una amiga em va deixar. Avui la Hana anira a dormir a casa de la Nell (el primer cop que se’n va a dormir a casa d’una amiga!!!) i li portara aquest quilt com a regal.

La Nell em va preguntar mentres l’estava fent si era magic. Jo li vaig dir: es clar que si, nomes ser fer quilts magics jo, i son els millors perque quan et tapes amb ells no tindras mai cap malson. Es va quedar parada i va dir: uaaaaaau…

I used a charm pack and did the following
He utilitzat un charm pack i he fet el seguent
cut 36 squares in half
talleu 36 quadres per la meitat

I sew three rectangles together lengthwise and made 24 units like this
Vaig cosir tres rectangles aixi per fer 24 unitats com aquesta
I sew a Kona white piece of 5″x3 1/2″ on 15 unit
Vaig cosir un rectangle de 5″x 31/2″ de tela Kona blanca a 15 unitats
I placed them on the floor to find a nice arrangement and 
sew the remaining units to the white rectangle from the side unit
Vaig posar-les al terra per veure com quedaven mes be
i vaig cosir les unitats restants al rectangle blanc del costat 
After pressing, I cut strips of more white fabric 33 1/2″x 4 1/2″ 
and join the panels together
despres de planxar, vaig tallar mes tires blancques de 33 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ 
i vaig cosir totes les tires juntes aixi
I used a 100%cotton sheet from Ikea for the green border.
2 strips of 33 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ to which you sew one unit at each end, 
and 2 strips of 41 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
Vaig fer servir un llenc,ol de 100% coto d’Ikea per fer el marc.
Vaig tallar dues tires de 33 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ a les quals vaig cosir una unitat a cada extrem,
i dues tires de 41 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
I kept a very simple quilting in the centre, following straight lines along the white strips
and diagonal lines along the units and free motion on the border. 
He fet un encoixinat simple al centre, nomes seguint linees rectes a les tires blanques i en diagonal aobre les unitats i encoixinat lliure al marc verd.

At each corner a sew a spiral
A cada cantonada vaig cosir un espiral
And of course, a label to remember that night full of fun, lots of stories and only good dreams…
The little verse about the rain is Nell’s. She said that to her daddy one day looking out the window, when she wanted to go outside to play and it was very windy… isn’t it fantastic? she was only 3!
I com no, una etiqueta per recordar aquella nit tan divertida, amb molts contes i cap malson…
Aquest vers es pot traduir mes o menys aixi:
la pluja, la pluja, la pluja…
la pluja fara neteja i s’endura el vent.
Aixo es el que va dir la Nell un dia al seu pare quan mirava per la finestra i feia molt de vent. 
Nomes tenia 3 anys!
