Bargello彩虹

创意Oozings#1 - 巴杰罗

不久后,我从旅行,在血腥冻结2013年3月中旬回来后,我决定拿起我离开了我的一些手艺的爱好。

很久以前我在史诗的火车出发旅行,我宣布一个意图让我的妹妹和她的丈夫结婚的被子(他在2011年结婚,迟到总比不到好?),但意识到一个基本的拼接类我早在2005年不太可能足够培训达成这样一项条约。我有一个收集各种各样的织物(我爱织物),包括一个带卷,并决定开始一个“实践”被子——一个慷慨的大小的Bargello眩晕的彩虹的颜色,在此基础上实现良好的1/4英寸的接缝,最好的方式就是做很多。我花了很多个晚上和周末的时间来缝制我的彩虹线,小心地变换每条线的缝制方向,以避免可怕的“香蕉效应”——这是我在05年的那节课上记得的为数不多的事情之一。最终,我把我的巴格罗布条准备好并裁剪好,然后开始把它们缝在一起,但我一直发现布条会移动、爬行,而且通常都不愿意沿着整个长度对齐。我可以看出我做得不对,但不知道如何改正。在经历了7-8次“摇摇晃晃”之后,我放弃了,专注于我所知道的打包生活,准备去旅行。

有一次我回家,我决定了我最好的行动当然会找人给我我需要的,这样我可以完成我的巴杰罗或许没有勇气开始西安和尼尔的被子指针。经过一番调查谷歌搜索和几通电话(其中之一是在Narbeth的深刻无助和不屑一顾绗缝组),我发现了一床被子俱乐部运行一个月两次Stefani的花,谁是积极和热情,而不是一百万英里远(当你住在荒郊野外一个重要的考虑因素)。这听起来完美的,所以沿着我就去了。它是完美的。史蒂芬妮和其他拼布很友好,乐于助人,有午餐和缝纫和我在我要去哪里错了我的彩虹轻轻指示。(如果你想知道 - 针从中间,对准接缝似乎血腥明显的,真的。)在那几天跟着被子俱乐部,我比我所能想象我会与我的彩虹,让更进步几乎完成,除了最后两个或三个条带。然后,我被诊断出恶性贫血她有好几个月没有再做缝纫或其他工作。最后,我完成了我的《巴格罗彩虹》:

Bargello彩虹

不幸的是,因为靠不住的栏目,希望通过我自己做的,它需要修剪,使其隐约广场,我真的很害怕弄错了,所以它衰弱这样的一段时间。(我也得到了其他项目分心,因为你做的。)

Last Quilt Club, however, was a bit of a catch-up and ideas session for the Attic Window project we’re all planning to tackle next, so I decided that I would use the time to trim my Bargello under instruction and get a border on it, prior to backing, basting and quilting the damn thing. The fabric I’ve chosen for the border and backing is navy blue with tiny cream stars all over it, and was about the only fabric I found that could get along with all the colours in the Bargello. The final width of the border is 6″ and it’s amazing to see how it’s framed and tamed all those colours.

Bargello边界

(可怜的家伙,你看它有多摇摇晃晃。但考虑到这是我缝制的第一件棉被,总的来说我还是很自豪的。)

但是。(不是总有一个“但是”吗?)在我修剪了我的包并贴好了边框之后,我遇到了一个问题。我买了很多海军蓝星的布料,但我只能凭猜测买,因为这被子还没有修剪或镶边。很明显,我的估计有一点小偏差,但是很重要的一点,给我留下了一个挑战,那就是试着把比我需要的更少的布料塞进被子的背面。单是巴吉罗的边线就比布料的宽度(44英寸)要宽(47英寸,59英寸),所以我已经意识到我需要把剩下的布料切成两半,然后把两部分连在一起,盖住被子的长度。愚蠢的是,我以为长度足够覆盖顶部的宽度,但当我尝试将折叠的面料与被面对齐时,我意识到面料对每一半来说都至少短了6英寸。糟糕。

然而,一切都没有丢失。I’d watched a fellow Quilt Clubber piece strips of squares for the back of her lovely blue-and-white throw quilt and had been really taken with the idea of a “two-faced” patchwork quilt, so I’d already planned to piece up something to put between the two halves of the backing. And I really didn’t want to follow mum’s suggestion of just buying more navy stars – it seemed like a cop-out. The final length of the top (79″) was less than the sum of two widths of fabric (88″) and I would have even more left if I added a strip of something between the two pieces, so I figured that I could use that surplus to “find” the extra inches I needed to cover the width of the quilt top. Mum had given me a book on patchwork, quilting and applique techniques for Christmas and I’d skimmed through and been quite taken by the Seminole strip ideas. I don’t have a huge fabric stash compared to many people, but I did have three fat quarters of striking ombre-style colour gradients in shades of red, orange, pink and purple (it does work, I promise!) that I decided made a good contrast with the navy stars and sort of connected with the Bargello on the top. I had two of one type of gradient and one of another, so I joined strips of 3″:1″:3″:1″:3″ of gradient 1/stars/gradient 2/stars/gradient 1 (cut size, not finished size), then cut sections 3″ wide, attached another 1″ strip of stars on one side, set them at a pleasing angle and joined them into a Seminole strip long enough to go across the width of the top. I was extremely pleased to find that, on trimming the surplus fabric from the edges, my Seminole strip was 6 1/2″ exactly. I don’t know if I could have done that if I’d tried! There were quite a few Seminole sections left over so I decided to use them, plus some more left-over navy stars, to create a lengthwise strip too to fill in that deficit. That done, I re-measured and re-calculated and decided that I was *still* a few inches short on the width. With the very last scraps of gradients and navy stars, I created more filler strips made up of 4 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ strips of all three fabrics sewn across the bias to give diagonal joins. Then the whole lot was cobbled together, with more oopses along the way.

好的。那是很多华夫饼。也许一幅画会更好?

Bargello回来

是的,好多了。(不过闪光灯确实把接缝露出来了。)对于这样一个进化的解决方案,我非常满意它(老实说,拼接起来可能比顶部更好!)现在,我只希望它足够大(我有足够的棉絮),这将不得不等到下一个棉被俱乐部,因为我们这里根本没有地板空间,让我把所有这些安排妥当。我还需要买自己的挡泥板和脚。
