SOL QAL


Today I finished a mini quilt for a flickr 'Fab Little Quilt Swap'. It started with this. The design is not my own. I based it on a picture which I once found in the net:
Dzis skonczylam mini quilt na kolejna wymianke z flickr 'Fab Little Quilt Swap':


 


My swap partner was very precise about what she wants - both colours and style, and what she would like to have on the mini. Such solours are not really mine lately, but you know how it is... pertner's wish is my demand ;) The background is pieced, the hills and the tree (and their reflection in the water) are fussy cut appliqued:

Moj a wymianka byla bardzo konkretna w opisie tego co lubi i co by chciala dostac (kolory oraz wzor). Na koncu w zartach wspomniala, ze rozowe zaby to byloby marzenie... wiec jest zaba i nawet jest z rozowym... Lubie zrobic cos, co sie mojej wymiance spodoba, wiec sie dostosowalam najdokladniej jak umialam (choc takich kolorow ostatnio wcale nie uzywam):


The frog and the lilly pad are also appliqued, then shaded with watercolour pencils.

Zaba i lisc to aplikacje zrobione z pomoca bondaweb. Wszystko dodatkowo pocieniowalam uzywajac wodorozcienczalnych kredek pastelowych:


All the details on the frog are thread sketched as well as the swirls on lilly pad. I kept the quilting very simple not to mess up with the design.

Detale i kontury (czarne kontury zaby i liscia, latek, oka, zawijasy na lisciu) sa wyszyte z uzyciem stopki do pikowania. Pikowanie ograniczylam do minimum, zeby nie przeszkadzalo calosci:


A little bit more details here:

Szczegoly troche lepiej widac tutaj: 


On the back -  aqua/coral Prince Charming to fit the design of the quilt. Now only label is left to make and the MQ will be finished.

Na tyl uzylam niebiesko-koralowej tkaniny z serii Prince Charming. Kolory sie zgadzaja, zaby tez :)

  5. Przyzwyczaiłaś mnie już do pięknych prac:) i ta też jest taka!!! podziwiam łączenie techniki szycia z malowaniem akwarelą, czy to się nie spiera w czasie prania?

  6. Absolutely wonderful (as usual with you)! A question, though: you said you used watercolor pencils. Don't they wash out, or is there a way to set them?
