Fashion District – finished quilt

Ostatni zakonczony projekt w tym roku – quilt Fashion District, ktory jest numerem 3 na mojej liscie projektow do zakonczenia w kwartale 4.

There is only one remaining finish to be announced this year – Fashion District quilt, which is #3 on my Finish-Along Q4 list.

Zszywanie, spiecie i czesc pikowania poszly naprawde szybko. Az do momentu kiedy dokladnie sprawdzilam tyl i zauwazylam mnostwo faldek. Oznaczalo to usuniecie czesci pikowania i naprawa tego, co naprawic sie dalo. Poczulam sie zniechecona i rozczarowana i odlozylam ten project na strone, czekajac na lepszy moment. Ale te lepsze chwile nie przychodza tak po prostu. Kilka tygodni temu zdecydowalam, ze musze poprawic pikowanie i skonczyc project zgodnie z planem – czyli jeszcze w tym roku.

The piecing, basting and part of quilting went really quick. Until the moment I checked carefully the back and found out that there are a lot of crinkles. That meant removing some quilting and repairing what could have been repaired. I felt discouraged and disappointed and put the quilt aside waiting for the better moment. But those better moments don’t come like that. Few weeks ago I decided that now I need to fix the mistakes and finish the quilt according to the plan – so by the end of the year.

Nie zamierzam zawracac wam glowy i opisywac, ile godzin zajelo mi wypruwanie pikowanie (na szczescie tylko czesci), powtorne spinanie, powtorne pikowanie i usuwanie nici. Tak naprawde juz zapomnialam. Istotne jest to, ze udalo mi sie to wszystko zrobic, no i lamowke rowniez.

I’m not going to bother you with describing how many hours I used on removing already existing quilting (luckily only a part), re-basting, re-quilting and removing hanging threads. I forgot it already. What is important is that I managed all of that and binding as well.

  1. Cherish the feeling of having another last minute finish in 2015! Ripping out those stiches must have been tedious and unrewarding but I hope you are now a lot happier with the “fixed” quilt. Enjoy and all the best for 2016!

  2. Tak mi się wydaje, że jedno porządne prucie musi się przydarzyć. Im szybciej tym lepiej 😉 Jeden z moich pierwszych kocyków też pikowałam po okręgu (jakby nie było łatwiejszych wzorów na początek ;). Bardzo ładny patchwork 🙂

  3. I know just how it is. I still have to finish a quilt which has the same problem as yours did. I’ve removed the offending stitches, but the quilt still needs to be re-basted and quilted.
