创意Oozings #11 -涂鸦虫

我的新刺绣脚最近出现了,我终于有机会挥动它;首先是一些测试碎片,然后,最后,我的彩虹Bargello!这是一个相当大的挑战就是,如何让机器运行在一个合理的速度足够快,使好的针但不要抓得太紧,我不能跟上和担心我的手指,有几个地方我发现自己在绗缝死胡同和恐慌,但总的来说我很满意它如何与彩虹杂色线出来了,我选择了。我觉得它和被头的其他部分真的很搭。点画在前面

点画的背上面修剪整齐,只需要装订成完整的棉被!然而,我在装订时遇到了布料短缺的问题,这完全是我自己造成的。我去Annie 's挑选了各种各样的面料来完成一些项目,包括Bargello的装订。经过测量和一些非常慷慨的计算,我最后用了将近1米深的红橙色织物,这对我的需求已经绰绰有余了。不幸的是,我被eBay上FQ包装的5个蓝白相间的日本印花图案所吸引,不知怎么的,当它们通过前门时,我立即开始用它们制作包。一开始,我想用另一种面料来做衬里,但很明显,这两种面料真的不太相配,而我买的那种用来装订的橘红色固体面料正好完美的。布料已经说出了我的想法,所以我把我需要做包的布料剪开,然后把剩下的剪成2条1/4”的带子来绑包。这可能说明了我买了多少布料,即使在用了很多布料后,我只有24英寸的Bargello装订!离得这么近,离得这么远,这让人很沮丧,但我只能等着,直到我能得到更多。

周四是被子俱乐部又来了,那一天我会指定的最终组装和被子我的彩虹巴杰罗与精心设计的背部。我已经离开最后一次所有组件那里,燕姿已经答应擦地板,所以我有一个很好的区域组装和针绷我的被子sarnie的。第一条线索,我可能遇到的问题是事实,我不能让我的胶带粘到地板上(可能是由于一些残留的清洁产品留下的)。这意味着越来越后面伸出漂亮紧是非常困难的。我的背部和击球按倒无论如何,然后放下顶部和痛打它,以及我所能,害怕什么,我要看到我举起它。

创意Oozings#1 - 巴杰罗

2013年3月,天气非常冷,我旅行回来后不久,我决定在中断的地方继续我的手艺爱好。

Long before I set off on my epic train trip, I’d declared an intention to make a wedding quilt for my sister and her husband (who got married in 2011 – better late than never?), but realised that the one basic patchwork class I’d been to way back in 2005 was unlikely to be sufficient training for such an undertaking. I had a collection of assorted fabric (I LOVE fabric), including a strip roll, and decided to start a “practice” quilt – a generously sized Bargello in a dizzying rainbow of colours, on the basis that the best way to achieve good 1/4 inch seams would be to do a LOT of them. I dedicated a number of evenings and weekends to sewing my rainbow together, carefully alternating the sewing direction for each strip to avoid the dreaded “banana effect” – one of the few things I remembered from that class of ’05. Eventually I got my Bargello strips prepped and cut and started sewing them together, but kept finding that the fabric walked and crept and generally refused to stay lined up along the whole length. I could see I was not doing it right, but did not know how to correct myself. After 7-8 wonky strips, I gave up and concentrated on packing up life as I knew it and getting ready to go travelling.
