Hi dear friends! Quilt top with little triangles is finished and there was a perfect day for photo shooting.
When this top was finished, I don’t know why by I wasn’t very exicited. When I took it out, the excitment came …
That stain glass illusion is so beautiful, when the sun light comes through the quilt top! I like always the seam allowances as a part of the ‘design’ and in this they play even more important role as there is so much white. Next photo is from the backside …
This quilt started when I was going through my scraps. I save even the smallest because I know I like to make fabric pictures and then even the littlest can be important. I noticed that there were lots of triangles so I thought to improvise something with them. My word for this year is ‘improvise’.
After basting, I got more excited …
Yesterday we had summer here! Yes, bright blue sky and about +22 C or perhaps more. I had lunch on the veranda with the dogs and started to quilt this.
After a while, dogs chose the shadow because it was really warm.
Usually I find easily names for my quilts … but not this time. Usually my quilts present something or there is a theme or something … but not this time. Then ‘Marle’ said that it looks like snow. Yes! I thought so too and continued from that.
I couldn’t decide how to quilt … finally I picked blue threads as shadows on snow. I started to doodle. Is there doodle quilting? now is, it’s free motion quilting by hand without any plan.
Now when I have quilted a little bit, I can see that some little creatures have been running on the snow!
With this quilt I’m not in hurry to finish, so I can use more time for the quilting. Other wise I would stitch some wavy lines.
And the sky was so blue beautiful! Today is quiet, slow Sunday and I’m planning to have a stitchful, relaxing day. In fact this time I’m writing on the couch and Hanna is sleeping next to me … upside down … Nero is sleeping in his favourite place front of the window and Nelli in her basket. Later we shall go for a walk … but no hurry today.
I’m linking to ‘Scraptastic Tuesday’ which is a linky party every month’s second Tuesday. Hosted by Leanne and Nicky. November I was one of the lucky winners and just received my fabrics from ‘Green Fairy Quilts’ – Thank you! Yesterday I already washed one fabric because it’s planned to be part of my funniest project ever! Hmmm I hope you’ll find it as fun as I do. I can’t keep my hands (or eyes) away from that!
Now I try to stay away from that funny project and to quilt little steps on that snow.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments! Have a lovely day!
