VRATILA SAM SE

Nakon što sam prije nekog vremena reaktivirala  blog koji pišem na engleskom , osjetila sam potrebu da i ovaj blog vratim u život. Vidim da je u međuvremenu dosta blogera odustalo od pisanja, neki objavljuju rijeđe, ali ima i novih zanimljivih blogova.
I nadalje ću najviše pisati (čitaj - hvaliti se) o mojim hobijima; prvenstveno patchworku i quiltingu, bit će poneka slika mog  doma i vrta, detalj koji mi se svidio u šetnji, od svega po malo...

Kako sam dugo izbivala, nakupilo se radova koje vam želim pokazati. Danas su na redu pokrivači za kinderbet okvirne veličine 80x120 cm. Neki su bili rađeni po narudžbi, a neki su poklonjeni.



Ova dva quilta gotovo istih lica, ali različitih naličja jedna je baka naručila za svoje unučice blizanke





Ovdje sam se okušala  u " low volume colour" shemi slaganja boja tj. sve  su krpice u jednoj boji,  ali bez velikih kontrasata. Nisam sigurna da mi se to sviđa, malo mi je dosadnjikav




Tzv. "string quilt" koji je sličan prethodnom,  samo što se ovaj  put nisam ograničila samo na jednu boju nego sam koristila različite , ali isto tako najsvijetlije nijanse. Mislim  da je ovo bolja opcija




I na kraju quilt kakav ja volim ; boje, boje, boje. Znam da sam ga već pokazala, ali nedovršenog. Sada je po svim quilterskim zakonima propisno prošiven, zarubljen i spreman da nekom djetetu uljepša krevetić i snove

LAZY ? ME? NEVER !

OK, feel a little bit of idleness but only for writing.
So, what was I doing lately? Sewing and quilting, of course. Two more UFOs were finished : this one is belated birthday quilt for my sister.Waiting time : only year and a half, my family is accustomed to late presents. Size: 59" x 78"





 As some of you allready know, I'm self taugh quilter and all I know about quilting I've learned on internet. My favorite teacher and may I say guru is Bonnie Hunter from Quiltville, her patterns are easy to understand and her very explanation very detailed and explicit. Most of them are scrapy ( I LOVE scraps!), and not less important- they are free. This one is called "Crayon box", but I would prefer call it Sunshine quilt. This is a little bigger then sister's quilt:  65" x  87"  and woud be mine.
Both quilts were free motion quilted.


 

Finishing this two quilts , I have only 3 UFOs  left, but have 6-9 WIPs in various stages.

FROM UFO TO FF


I've started this quilt four years ago, it was graduation gift for my niece.Top was done in two weeks, but quilting...OK, I don't like quilting but living in the country where is no professional quilters I have to do it myself.
And did it.
Most important thing about this quilt is satisfied niece who finally got her quilt.



Another swoon  block is finished and became a table topper  for Easter. This is my favorite block at the moment, of course have plans for whole quilt but don't know when.

FNSI RESULTS AGAIN

Some time ago I found a box full of strips which were some odd width, less than 2,5" more than 2 " and not2 1/4". Cutting them to 2" would last too long, so I've decided to make a carpet inspired by jelly roll race. After quilting,it looks to me more baby quilt than a carpet , and ta-daaaaa my first charity quilt for this year is done.
FNSI was perfect opportunity to bind it and I've did it.


It is a little too bright, but babies love bright colors, don't they.
