weekend work



Estoy contenta. Terminé la parte superior del quilt, la parte de atrás e hice el hilvanado ayer. La verdad es que fue algo complicado trabajar con estos tejidos, pues al planchar pueden ser un poco elásticos y la peor parte es que se deshilachan con mucha facilidad, además de que las telas son algo pesadas y gruesas...
todo eso me hace pensar porqué estaba trabajando con ellos? No se, creo que sólo porque son verdaderamente lindos...!!

I'm happy. I finished the quilt top, the back and I made the basting yesterday. It was really hard working with those wovens, they are a bit elastic when ironing, and the worst part is the threads come out very easy and also, they are a little heavy...
so I'm wondering why I was working with them? I don't know, I think just because they are sooo beautiful...!

feliz inicio de semana
happy start of week!

  6. Your quilt is lovely! I'm currently working on a quilt made with these beautiful cross weaves. I agree with everything you said about using them, the stretch and fray and the challenge of it, but the fabrics are so lovely I think it will be worth all the effort!

    I'll be watching your blog to see yours all quilted! I am sure it will be just gorgeous!

  10. I love the colors! Despite the struggle, it looks so nicely stitched and pressed. Sometimes I use spray sizing with difficult fabrics.
