Un estoig únic



Fa uns dies va ser l’aniversari de la meva neboda, l’Alba, que va fer nou anys. Quan uns dies abans li vam preguntar què volia que li regaléssim, va demanar-me una cosa feta per mi. No és dolça? :D De fet jo ja tenia pensat fer-li alguna coseta, però quan m’ho va demanar ella, em va fer molta il·lusió.
Aprofitant que començava l’escola, vaig pensar que un estoig seria un bon regal. Ja feia temps que volia provar la tècnica del “quilt as you go”, que vindria a ser una tècnica de patchwork en la que vas encoixinant a mida que vas unint retalls. La primera vegada que en vaig sentir a parlar va ser en el blog de l’Elisabeth Hartman. Així que vaig agafar la caixa dels retalls, i buscant els colors que trobava més adequats vaig anar unint-los...
Some days ago was the anniversary of Alba, my niece, who turned nine. A few days before we asked her what did she wants for her birthday, and she asked me something handmade ​​by me. Isn’t it sweet? :D In fact I was already thinking to make something for her, but when she asked, I was so thrilled.
As the school had just started, I thought that a pencil case would be a great gift. Since I knew about the technique “quilt as you go” that I’ve been thinking to try it in one of my projects. The first time that I heard about it was in Elizabeth Hartman's blog. It consists on a patchwork quilting style in which you quilt as the same time that you ensemble your quilt. So I grabbed the scraps box and choosing the fabrics with the adequate colors, I started joining them and quilting...


La veritat és que és una tècnica molt divertida de fer, ja que pots anar jugant amb diferents mides de retalls i no cal que sigui massa precís, al contrari que el patchwork tradicional. Un cop vaig tenir els retalls units en aquest “mini-quilt”, vaig fer l’estoig, i el vaig acabar personalitzant amb el seu nom. Quan el va veure... li va encantar! I a la classe ha fet furor entre les seves amigues i també les professores! Haha :D
The truth is that is quite fun do this technique, because you can go playing with different scrap sizes and cuts doesn’t need to be too precise, in contrast with the traditional patchwork. Once I had finished the "mini- quilt", I made the pencil case, and I ended up customizing it with her name. When she saw it... she loved it! And it has had a lot of success in her class, not only with her friends, also among the teachers! Haha :D






Animeu-vos a provar aquesta tècnica, i ja m’explicareu com us ha anat! :)
Dare to try this technique and tell me about it! :)
