Quilt Show






As in Spring, I am going to participate in Park City Girl's Virtual Quilt Show. It was such fun, I have to repeat it! :-)

This quilt is in fact a wall hanging. I'd started sewing it for our bedroom in our flat before this one, but hadn't finish it before we decided to move to a bigger place. It sat in a box for quite a while, and in the meantime we learned that we were expecting Baby No 3., and of course she needed a wallhanging in the nursery. So I quickly finished it, and instead of our bedroom, it is hanging in Emma's room - just perfect for a little girl!

It is a traditional sort of quilt. I hand sewed all the blocks, which are from my 5 inch quilt squares book, increasing the size of course. The borders were sewn by machine, and it is hand quilted in the ditch. The fabrics are from Debbie Mumm's mostly.

Épp úgy, mint tavasszal, most is részt veszek Park City Girl Quilt Show-ján.

Ez a takaró valójában egy falvédő, amit még az előző lakásunkba terveztem, az ágyunk mögött lógott volna. Közben elköltöztünk, kiderült, hogy jön a 3 csemete, és persze kell neki egy falvédő. Így gyorsan összekaptam magam és befejeztem a falvédőt.

Kézzel varrtam a blokkokat, az 5 inch quilt blokkok könyvemből, felnagyítva azokat. A keretet géppel varrtam rá, majd a varrásvonalban kézzel steppeltem. Az anyagok Debbie Mumm Mum's The Word sorozatából vannak.
