2019年绗缝节,入口2 - 闪烁的明星

此条目有一个双重截止日期 - 在7月底末期的Quilts和即将到来的新侄女或侄子!The design was one I’d already drafted but not made, and I’ve been itching to stretch my “modern” wings a bit, so when I learned that the FoQ entry deadline had been extended I picked up all my courage and entered a quilt I hadn’t even started yet. Because那是一个明智的事情!

我对Moda的Ombre梯度和一些坚固的海军面料有一段时间的想法,并决定使用Ombre来通过选择性地切割煤层的不同区域来为恒星创造梯度效果。鲜艳的色彩真正摧毁了海军蓝色,我也碰巧有一些滑翔线的卷轴,这对我的面料选择很有匹配。我藏匿的竞争被子?完善!

拼接真的顺利,梯度效果非常好。

我对三星的颜bob体育冠军色和规模非常满意 - 即使颜色被我的手机的相机谋杀!绗缝是一个进一步的挑战;我自信地在星形元素上自信地做了一些安吉拉沃特斯 - 灵感的DOT-to-dot图案,但暂时停滞在背景中相当广泛的负面空间中要做的事情!

经过大量脑袋,灵感在一晚,我睡着了一晚 - 圈子!使用我的IDT步行脚,我绗缝的同心圆,从每个星光辐射出来,大多在海绵蓝光螺纹中,但有一些橙色,绿色或蓝色圆圈,也可以匹配星星。The backing is a print of cartoon jungle animals, found by mum “in case you hadn’t thought of something for the new baby yet” (eye-roll!), but had oranges and greens that went really well with the fabric on the front, so that worked out well.

我很高兴与同伴所看的竞争对手看起来很满意!

我获得了三个法官的得分和评论,所有这些被子,所有这些都是积极和令人鼓舞的。虽然我在FOQ的时候,我也在我的丑闻附近做了一些无耻的游荡,并与其他展会游客有一些非常可爱的互动,谁都是真正善良的工作。它现在与新的主人,我的小侄子和我生日那天出生的人!

2019年绗缝节 - 入口1,羽毛鸟

道格拉斯亚当斯着名,“我喜欢截止日期。我喜欢他们飞过的海底的声音。“我?我和Ol'道格拉斯部分的方式 - 我爱一个截止日期。他们帮助我焦点并给我一个特定的框架来管理我的时间,因为他们在日常工作中非常重要。我也了解到,我也喜欢我的工艺品的截止日期。bob体育app下载苹果没有日期或一个旨在瞄准的活动,我很有能力蜿蜒而且被别人愤怒地注意的其他东西分散了分散注意力。那么,围绕着训练截止日期!

因此,去年我拉上了我的大女孩内衣,并决定首次进入绗缝节日。我的原因?1)获得完成的东西(yay截止日期!)和2)获得一些公正的反馈。我的许多不明飞行物,我选择了纸起重机块从刀架块交换bob体育app下载苹果作为我的目标项目。I’d made the extra Cranes and filler blocks, everything was layered up ready to go, and I’d even made a start on the quilting, so really all (ha!) I had to do was quilt each block and assemble them into the finished quilt. Additionally, as a project that has involved other peoples’ effort, I felt it had greater priority than some of my other WIPs.

进入集团类别,我被安排到绗缝;飞行鹅块的火柴绗缝和DOT-to-dot设计以及四个不同的“元素”启发设计(水,空气,火,地球),用于在起重机周围的背景,已经沟渠已经绗缝。我的一个交换伙伴之一,我还有三个略小较小的起重机;她让我三个合适的大小,但“错误”是如此漂亮,我也希望他们成为被子的一部分,所以我在三个飞行的鹅块的后面使用它们,并在他们周围绗缝所以他们的阴影出现在被子的前面。

一旦绗缝的所有主块,我都会引起对所需的设置三角形来调整它。为了增强被子的日本人/东方人,我决定使用竹叶图案,并花了很多时间手掌贴上了很多绿色的叶子奶油背景!

那种面料有多好?这是一个非常幸运的发现在伐木电厂的Calico Kate,只适合我的竹叶。

You may notice that I cheated a bit with my setting triangles, which perhaps wasn’t the best decision ever made, but by this point the end of July was bearing down upon me with speed and I was just determined not to hear that “WHOOSH” sound. Each block was quilted with an overall pattern of elongated leaves, then the triangles were cut apart, trimmed to size and arranged around the quilted blocks.

最后,组装被子,我使用了一个修改的版本在YouTube上的Leah日缝合教程。在后面,我用过狭窄的奶油七莓面料条,它具有最迷人的编织纹理,以及在前面我使用了一个较轻的叶面料颜色的遮阳道,真的碰到竹外观。为了最大限度地提高效果,我甚至在每条条带上使用了MARKAL PAITTSTICKS来模板连接线。

为了使他们真正脱颖而出,我还融合了一条狭窄的卷曲条,然后将每个条带手动贴在篮子编织排列中的加入。被子的装订更像是纹理奶油七莓织物。我应该注意到我的叔叔在7月中旬有60岁生日派对,因为我是我唯一的家庭角落的人,甚至可以远程能够去,我不得不把我的被子变成“只有缝纫”状态然后把它带到英格兰南部,帮助他庆祝。我对被子拉出被子并在聊天时做得更加自豪!幸运的是,随着我在我发现之前的一代拼接器,手工缝纫可能很善于交际,每个人都对我所做的事情迷人迷人和原因。最后,最后一针和悬挂套筒附有,然后我像狗的头发和棉绒一样滚下,因为我可以仔细地发现并将其包装起来,准备送到NEC。

几天后,在伯明翰博物馆周围的陶器,我终于看到我的工作挂在绗缝节的节日!

所以,AIM 1实现 - 被子完成并输入!Huzzah!瞄准2怎么样?Well, I have to say that I was nervous when I opened the envelope with the judges’ feedback in it, but in fact what I found therein was very fair and encouraging comments and scores that, based on the very high standard at the FoQ that year, seemed entirely reasonable. I did get dinged a little over those setting triangles being a bit wibbly! However, in truth I’m not sure how much was due to bias effects and how much was down to having folded the quilt for delivery. Now that it’s on my bed, keeping me cosy in all this rough weather, it’s impossible to notice any wobbles. For me, entering a quilt show is very much an opportunity to learn, both during the construction phase and from the feedback afterwards. I can say for sure that it was a really positive experience that I am looking forward to repeating this year!
