Last week was crazy. A few bad events happened but the worst of all, our Pepe was sick. He did not eat for days, he did not play. But now he is better.Thank you all for the messages you left on my last post. It was nice to learn more about some of you and your quilting beginnings. It's incredible how a chance influences our lives...
Only today I managed to take more pictures to my latest quilt made using a kit from Jinny Beyer. My camera doesn't like at all these colors or the combination of them, I had to modify the pictures a lot to make the colors look real.
This quilt was a challenge, it tested my patience ! I am glad I passed the test !
I made a lot of things I hate: sewing many-many Y seams and piecing diamonds.
For years I did not order this kit from Jinny because I told myself :"I don't have enough patience to cut and sew the inner border".
But I did it ! These are borders made in Jinny's style. I used one of her border prints, the design of it has bilateral symmetry.
Every piece of the border is the mirror image of the next piece. Very easy to make using transparent templates and Jinny's explanation.
For the black pieces again I had to make templates and sew other Y seams.
It was not hard at all to make it, but you definitely have to be in a good mood to make things you don't like.
It is quilted very simple, with wavy lines, I think quilting took me 5-6 hours.
Have a wonderful week !
