Modern Wall quilt

When we moved to our new house (yes, this was last year, like 2013!) I wanted to make a quilt for our living room. And I wanted a modern design. So a pin caught my eye on Pinterest, and I decided to give it a try.

The piecing went great, I had the top pieced in no time (yes, last year!) and I had to baste it and quilt it. I wanted a sturdy fabric for the back as it was going to be a wall quilt, and I chose a really bad one, a tweed denim-like. Well, to keep it short, it was impossible to quilt! Sliding that backing fabric through the sewing machine was a nightmare! I promised myself I will only use cotton quilting fabrics, unless it is a very small project. I hope this week my husband will find the time to hang it on the wall, and I can say that after all the trouble, I really like it.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

Φαίνεται πως σε ταλαιπώρησε πολύ…..θα το είχα παρατήσει.

Έχω 2-3 τέτοια “δύστροπα” στην ντουλάπα μου,παρατημένα,με την υπόσχεση να τα ξηλώσω και να τα ξαναφτιάξω….κοροϊδεύω τον εαυτό μου….δεν θα το κάνω ποτέ.

Ήταν τρελή ταλαιπωρία, αλλά δεν μπορώ να αφήνω μισά πρότζεκτ, με κυνηγάνε! Μην ξηλώσεις τίποτα, απλά κάντα κάτι άλλο…repurpose!
