Hola! participo al Blogger's Quilt Festival amb un dels meus quilts!
cliqueu a la imatge per saber-ne una mica mes.






This is a baby quilt I made for a friend's nephew.
I call it Wonky Squares, but maybe I should call it "First Timer", 
as it was the first time I used solids and the first time I used my new triangular ruler...

I had this charm pack of solids stashed and waiting to be used for some special occasion.
I wasn't sure how to use it and when I got that ruler, I simply followed one of the 
suggestions they give you in the packaging...wonky squares...

Once the top was pieced, I didn't want to mess it up with the quilting.
I thought the best thing would be to enhance the whole composition,
quilting all around the squares in a zig-zag way. 

So here is my

Wonky Squares Baby Quilt

entering three categories:

Aquest quilt el vaig fer per al nebot d'una amiga.
L'he titolat Wonky Squares (quadres torc,ats), pero potser l'hauria
d'haver anomenat "Primerenc". 
Era la primera vegada que utilitzava teles llises i la primera
vegada que utilitzava un regle triangular.

Tenia la tela guardada, esperant a ser protagonista i al final 
vaig seguir un dels suggeriments que et donaven 
les instrucciones del regle.

Un cop el top estava acabat, no volia pifiar-la amb l'encoixinat.
Vaig optar per anar reseguint els quadres a la part exterior, fent ziga-zaga
i fent resaltar tota la composicio.

L'entro en tres categories:

Quilts per Bebes

Quilts encoixinats a maquina a casa

Quilt de Falda

medeix 43"x 37"

desitjeu-me sort i voteu els vostres quilts preferits del 5 al 8 de Novembre,
