FOTO FINISH

I can’t even remember when was my last entry for the Foto Finish at Cat Patches… I really like this idea of showing a themed photograph and for a while I tried to keep it up, but then lives gets in the way…

Ja no recordo quina era la meva ultima foto per al Foto Finish de Cat Patches… m’agradava participar cada setmana amb una foto sobre el tema que tocava, pero la falta de temps ja va interrompre la marxa. 

“Yellow” is the theme for this week and I thought of this photo I took of this field of sunflowers in Catalonia. How I’d love to be there right now… in the heat.

“Groc” es el tema per aquesta setmana i recordo que vaig fer aquesta foto d’un camp de girasols anant en cotxe per Girona. Com m’encantaria estar alla ara mateix… amb la caloreta.

swap received

Here’s the mini quilt I received as part of the swap between the Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland and the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild. Andi from our-epoch is the artist who made this amazing mini quilt. She found out I’m very fond of tea and made this tea set for me.

Aquest es el mini quilt que he rebut com a part de l’intercanvi de l’agrupacio de patchwork modern d’Irlanda i el d’Atlanta. L’Andi de our-epoch es l’artistassa que m’ha fet aquest quilt sobre te. Va investigar una mica el meu blog i va veure que soc fan del te.

I didn’t know we would receive a quilt from the same person you made a quilt for… Had I known this I would have waited to post about my quilt for her until Andi received it. I’m not sure if she has yet, as it was sent early last week. My quilt is so simple compared to those of the rest of the participants, I’m really embarrassed… sorry Andi… 😦 If you’d like to see the rest of the quilts you can click here.

No sabia que ens havien posat per parelles i que rebria un quilt de la mateixa persona a qui jo feia un. No estic segura de si l’Andi ha rebut el meu ja, el vaig enviar la setmana passada. espero que li agradi, tot i que es molt mes senzill que el seu i que de tota la resta de participants. em fa una mica de vergonya i tot… Si voleu veure’ls tots, cliqueu aqui.

The fabric es great, I really like the printed letters of the cup.
La tela es molt maca, sobretot la de la tasa amb les lletres impreses.

The embroidery bit is very cleverly used, coming out of the spout…
El brodat esta fet molt astutament, com si fos fum que surt de la tetera i es llegeix “te”

The piecing is amazing, how many pieces has this little quilt!
La quantitat de trocets cosits per a cada detall es impressionant.

And on the label at the back, she even printed a lovely poem about tea…
I al darrera,  a l’etiqueta, hi ha impres un poema sobre te… tot un detall…

Andi, this is so nice. Thank you thank you very much. 
All the details on it are so well taken care of.
Go raibh maith agat!!!

SWAP – INTERCANVI

This is the mini quilt I made for my swap partner from the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild. She said she likes red and green and I love red, so I had plenty of that. The stripy fabric has tiny green dots that match the outer green border and I used red thread for the quilting. I hope she likes it… 
Aquest es el mini quilt per a l’intercanvi amb el Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild. La meva companya d’intercanvi va dir que li agradava el vermell i el verd, i com que a mi tambe m’agrada el vermell ja tenia molta tela d’aquest color. La tela ratllada te puntets verds que ja queden be amb la tela verda del marge. Ara espero que li agradi…


I used Flea Market Fancy for the binding and backing.
Now I only need to print a label and 
it will go all the way to Georgia.
I always think of peaches
when I hear Georgia…
La tela del darrere i la vora son de Flea Market Fancy.
Ara nomes falta imprimir una etiqueta 
i estara llestper anar a Georgia. 
Sabieu que Georgia es famosa 
pels seus pressecs?

I like quilting a straight line just outside the seam so it bulks out a bit,
but I quilted on the ditch for the outside of the star.
M’agrada fer l’encoixinat recta just a la vora de les costures
per fer resaltar mes les peces, pero a la part de fora
de l’estel l’he fet just a la vora.
Straight red lines to frame it and finished!
Linees rectes amb fil vermell per enmarcar-ho tot i acabat!
