Hola! participo al Blogger’s Quilt Festival amb un dels meus quilts!
cliqueu a la imatge per saber-ne una mica mes.
This is a baby quilt I made for a friend’s nephew.
I call it Wonky Squares, but maybe I should call it “First Timer”,
as it was the first time I used solids and the first time I used my new triangular ruler…
I had this charm pack of solids stashed and waiting to be used for some special occasion.
I wasn’t sure how to use it and when I got that ruler, I simply followed one of the
suggestions they give you in the packaging…wonky squares…
Once the top was pieced, I didn’t want to mess it up with the quilting.
I thought the best thing would be to enhance the whole composition,
quilting all around the squares in a zig-zag way.
So here is my
Wonky Squares Baby Quilt
entering three categories:
BABY QUILT
HOME MACHINE QUILTED QUILT
 
THROW QUILT
 
pieced and quilted by
Irina De Juan
 
measurements: 43″ x 37″

………………………………………………………………………………..
Aquest quilt el vaig fer per al nebot d’una amiga.
L’he titolat Wonky Squares (quadres torc,ats), pero potser l’hauria
d’haver anomenat “Primerenc”. 
Era la primera vegada que utilitzava teles llises i la primera
vegada que utilitzava un regle triangular.
 
Tenia la tela guardada, esperant a ser protagonista i al final 
vaig seguir un dels suggeriments que et donaven 
les instrucciones del regle.
 
Un cop el top estava acabat, no volia pifiar-la amb l’encoixinat.
Vaig optar per anar reseguint els quadres a la part exterior, fent ziga-zaga
i fent resaltar tota la composicio.
 
L’entro en tres categories:
 
Quilts per Bebes
 
Quilts encoixinats a maquina a casa
 
Quilt de Falda
 
medeix 43″x 37″
 
desitjeu-me sort i voteu els vostres quilts preferits del 5 al 8 de Novembre,
 cliqueu a la imatge de dalt i veure les altres entrades!
