Finished project {HST pillow cover}

Czy pamietacie numer 14 na mojej liscie z projektami do wykanania na kwartal 1? Ostatni? Zabawne, ale wlasnie ten projekt skonczylam jako pierwszy w tym kwartale.

Do you remember #14 on my Q1 Finish-Along list? The last one? It’s funny, but it got finished as the first one in this quarter.

Jakis czas temu mialam przyjemnosc przylaczenia sie do Melanie z Melanie’s Kunstraum, Allison z Campbell Soup Diary i Jessici (@treuepfand). Spedzenie prawie calego dnia na wspolnym szyciu to rewelacyjne doswiadczenie, wypelnione dobrymi radami i pomoca. Z niecierpliwoscia czekam i przygotowuje sie do nastepnego razu.

For some time ago I had a pleasure to join Melanie from Melanie’s Kunstraum, Allison from Campbell Soup Diary and Jessica (@treuepfand). It was a great experience to spend almost the whole day sewing together, full of good advices and support. I’m already looking forward and preparing for the next one.

Powyzej zdjecie z prac w toku podczas wspolnego szycia. Lubie pikowanie, chociaz jest to ciagle nowa dla mnie rzecz i jest mi ciezko wybrac inny wzor niz pikowanie po liniach prostych. Taki byl tez plan co do tego projektu. Az do czasu kiedy Mell wpadla na swietny pomysl pikowania trojkatow.

Above the progress photo from the sewing get together. I like quilting, however it’s still so new for me that it’s difficult to come up with a quilting design that is not just straight lines. That was also the plan for this project. Only until Mell came up with a great idea of triangle pattern.

Rozmawiajac na temat pikowania znalazlysmy tez i latwy sposob na pikowanie trojkatow. Najpierw linia prosta wzdluz szwu, a nastepnie pozostale czesci trojkatow (w formie schodow) przepikowane linia ciagla. Bez potrzeby chowania koncowek nici, co jest ogromnym plusem.

After some discussions we managed to find an easy way to make those triangles. First by stitching ‘almost’ in the ditch and then remaining parts of triangles (just like stairs) with the continuous line. So no need to bury the thread, which is a huge advantage.

I w koncu zakonczona poszewka na poduszke. Mierzaca okolo 50×50 cm jest polaczeniem tkanin projektu Pat Bravo, Lotty Jansdotter i Alison Glass. Wszystkie w roznych odcieniach rozu i fioletu z Essex Yarn Dyed w kolorze Flax jako tlo.

And here is the finished pillow cover. Measuring 20×20 inches, it is a mix of Pat Bravo’s, Lotta Jansdotter’s and Alison Glass’s fabrics. All in different shades of pink / purple with Essex Yarn Dyed in Flax as a background.
