WONKY SQUARES – my first solids


This is my first quilt using Kona solids. A friend of mine ordered 
a baby quilt for her nephew, something very colorful and I suggested
a rainbow-like theme. I’m really happy with the result, and so she is too!
I hope the baby boy will like it too…
I am linking in with the Quilter in the Gap‘s 2012 Pre-second quarter
Finish-A Long Linky Party.
Aquest es el meu primer quilt fent servir colors llisos, Kona.
Una amiga em va encarregar fer un quilt per al seu nebot, alguna cosa amb 
molt de color i vaig suggerir l’arc de Sant Marti com a tema…
M’encanta el resultat i a ella tambe! ara espero que al petit tambe li agradi.
I didn’t know how to quilt it, and I wanted the squares to stand out, 
so I decided to outline the squares by quilting around them at 1/8″ from the seam.
The rhomboids are highlighted too and the outer frame gave way to play a bit more,
echoing the zig-zag lines worked out pretty well, I think.
No sabia com fer l’encoixinat i volia que els quadres ressaltessin, 
aixi que vaig optar per seguir els quadres a 1/8 de polzada de la vora.
Els romboides tambe resalten i el marge exterior es prou ample per 
jugar una mica mes, fent servir el zig-zag varies vegades.

I used an IKEA print for the backing, very colorful and fun.

Per al darrera he fet servir una tela de l’IKEA, 
molt divertida i plena de coloraines.
And like with  all my ordered baby quilts, it comes with its own bag…
I com amb tots els meus encarrecs de quilts per a nens, ve amb la seva bossa…

1 Charm Pack of Kona Bright Palette (I didn’t use all the squares)
