blogger's quilt festival - fall 2009

Bienvenidos a mi blog!!
Welcome to my blog!!

Desde que leí este post de Amy, me emocioné mucho con la idea de participar en este grandioso festival de quilts... !!! así que aquí estamos...
since i read this post from Amy, i was very exciting with the idea of participating in this great quilt's festival...!!! so here i am..!
Este quilt es el primero que hice sin ayuda. Fue antes de descubrir tantos sitios de quilting en internet... antes de descubrir blogs, tiendas de telas online, de saber que había diseñadores de telas (sí, yo no lo sabía), antes de saber que existía algo llamado "free motion quilting"...

This quilt is the first i made without help. That was before i found all those amazing quilting sites on internet... before i discovered quilting blogs, online fabric stores, before i knowing that had fabric designers (yep, i didn't know!), before i knew there was something called "free motion quilting"...
Lo hice el año pasado (octubre de 2008), justo después de haber tomado un curso básico de 1 semana sobre patchwork y de darme cuenta que encontré una grandiosa forma de pasar el tiempo!
i made it last year (october 2008), just after taking a one week basic course of patchwork and realizing i found a great way to spend my time off!
para ello compré mi primera máquina de coser (una singer 2250 y meses después compré la brother CS6000i que ahora tengo y ahora quiero otra..!), mis cutter, mi cuting mat, mis reglas y comencé a visitar algunas tiendas de telas en mi ciudad.
for that i bought my first sewing machine (a singer 2250 and months later i bought a brother CS6000i and now i want an other..!), my rotary cutters, my cutting mat, my rulers and i started to visit the fabrics shops in my town.
El patrón lo saqué de este libro (sip, también fue cuando comencé a comprar libros de quilting) y las telas las compré en una tienda de mi ciudad llamada "El Puerto de Veracruz", algunas son de moda fabrics y otras son viejos diseños de Robert Kauffman, claro que cuando yo las compré no sabía que eran marcas de telas! y también fue cuando me topé con que todo o casi todo lo que se ha publicado sobre quilting, está en inglés y el mío es muuuuy malo (ups!)... así que también desde entonces y de forma autodidacta, he estado aprendiendo un poco más de este idioma.
The pattern is from this book (yep, also that was when i started to buy quilting books)and i bought the fabrics in a local shop called "El Puerto de Veracruz", some of them are from moda fabrics and other are old desings from Robert Kauffman, and of course i don't knew these were fabric brands! ... in those days I found to everything or almost everything has been published about quilting was wrote in english and mine is tooo baaad (ups)!!!... so since then and also sef-taught, i've learning a little more of this language...

Entonces, aunque este quilt tenga muchos errores, aunque no tiene un diseño espectacular... al menos para mí tiene algo especial...
Then, altrough this quilt had many mistakes and dont have a dramatic design... at least is something special for me...

  7. That is a quilt to treasure -- and welcome to the club. I find the best part of reading quilt blogs is to know that I am not the only one collecting everything quilting.

  8. It's lovely! I was the same, when I made my first quilt I had no idea about all the information on the web, machine quilting or fabric designers.... It's a whole new, big world...

  9. My first quilt using my new Janome 6500 machine was also involving pin wheels. You did very well on your own and hope there will be more coming.

  15. Hola Rosa María
    que bueno saber que hay otras hispanohablantes que visitan blogland!! Me parece que tu quilt está muy bien realizado y me alegra mucho saber que encontraste en el quilt un buen pasatiempo.
