Nowy dzien, nowe wyzwanie – Millefiore Quilt Along / New day, new challenge – The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along

Katja z Katja’s Quilt Shoppe rozpoczela Millefiore Quilt Along w styczniu. Quilt Along polega na uszyciu quiltu skladajacego sie z 15 rozetek w ciagu 2015 roku. Co miesiac instrukcje kolejnych rozetek sa publikowane. Quilt sklada sie z 52 roznych blokow szesciokatnych z ksiazki Katji: The New Hexagon – 52 Blocks to English Paper Piece. Uwielbiam te recznie szyte rozetki, jak i wyzwania, dlatego sie wlaczylam do zabawy. Czesc mojej rozetki numer 1 ponizej.

Katja from Katja’s Quilt Shoppe started a Millefiore Quilt Along already in January. The idea is to finish the quilt made of 15 rosettes by the end of this year. Each month the instructions for new rosettes are published. The quilt is based on the 52 different hexagon blocks from Katja’s book: The New Hexagon – 52 Blocks to English Paper Piece. I love those paper pieced rosettes as well as I like challenges, therefore I signed in. You can see the part of my rosette #1 below.

Prosze pamietajcie, ze nigdy wczesniej nie probowalam czegos takiego, moje doswiadczenie w szyciu recznym ogranicza sie do przyszywania guzikow i lamowki. Wiec to naprawde jest DUZA SPRAWA. Proces wybierania tkanin i ich przygotowywanie do zszywanie jest calkiem przyjemny. Z drugiej strony jako szalona perfekcjonistka czuje sie nieswojo z powodu widocznych szwow. Mam nadzieje, ze naucze sie z tym zyc, jak nie to bede miala poduszke zamiast quiltu..

Please keep in mind that I have never tried anything like that before, my hand sewing experience is limited to buttons and recently binding. So it’s really a BIG THING. So far I enjoy the process of picking the fabrics and preparation for joining of the pieces together. On the other hand I’m a kind of crazy perfectionist and I feel a little uncomfortable that the stiches are visible. I hope I can live with that, else I will end up with a pillow instead of the quilt..

Jestem calkiem zadowolona z wyboru tkanin – pomieszalam kilka kolekcji: Shimmer, Winged, Indelible i kilka innych. Zgodnie z moim planem caly quilt bedzie w tej kolorystyce, z dodatkiem zolci, fioletu oraz kremow (tych ostatnich z kolekcji Shimmer). Cel jest ukazac wszystkie rozetki i jednoczesnie zachowac bardzo spojny charakter.

I’m actually pretty happy about my fabric choice – I mixed fabrics from several collections: Shimmer, Winged, Indelible and some other pieces. My plan is to keep the whole quilt in this color palette, adding some yellows and maybe violet as well as some other cream fabrics from Shimmer collection at a later stage. The goal is to have all rosettes visible, however the quilt shall be consistent.

Kolory to cala ja, nie moge sie doczekac ukonczenia pierwszej rozetki.

The colors are so much me, I’m looking forward to see the complete rosette 1.
