quilt for a pretty girl





Por fin terminé el quilt que comencé hacer a principios de marzo para regalarlo a mi hermana en su cumpleaños que fue a mediados de abril... lo entregué un poco tarde, pero dada mi productividad en los últimos meses creo que no estuvo tan mal después de todo...
Finally I finished the quilt that I started to work with it at begining of last March to give as a birthday present to my sister... I gave it to her a little bit late, but since I'm not been so much productive lately I think it wasn't to bad after all...

Las telas que usé las compré hace un par de años y desde que las ví pensé que serían perfectas para hacerle un quilt a Verónica y después de ver la sonrisa en su cara cuando lo vio, sé que no me equivoqué... The fabrics that I used I bought them a couple of years ago and since I saw them I thougt they would be perfect to make a quilt for Verónica and after seeing the smile on her face when she saw it, I knew I was right...

y por si les interesa, esto es lo que utilicé:
15 fat quarters
1/2 yarda de tela para el sashing
cada fat quarter se cortan en 6 tiras de 3.5", por lo que tendrás 90 tiras de 3.5".
Después las separas 2 grupos de 60 tiras cada uno:
1) 3.5" x 17.5"
2) 3.5" x 8.5"
Para el sashing necesitas 4 tiras de 3.5" que se unirán para tener 2 tiras.
Se unen en segmentos de 20 tiras y con el sashing se delimitaron los tres segmentos de las tiras de 8.5"... unes todo, hilvanas, se hace acolchado y pones bies... y sin desperdiciar tela (porque no te quedará nada de los fat quarters), obtienes un buen quilt para la siesta, de aproximadamente 60 x 79...



and if you're interested, here's what I used:
15 fat quarters
1/2 yard of fabric for sashing

Each fat quarter cut into six strips of 3.5 ", so you'll have 90 strips of 3.5". After that you separate the two groups of 60 strips each:
1) 3.5 "x 17.5"
2) 3.5 "x 8.5"
For the sashing you need 4 strips of 3.5" to sew at the end and have 2 long strips.

The strips are sewn into segments of 20 and with the sashing strips are delineated the three segments of the 8.5" strips... so after be piecing, basting, quilting and binding, without wasting fabric (you'll not have left overs from the fat quartes), you'll get a good nap quilt about 60" x 79.

muchas gracias a todos por su preocupación por lo de los incendios,  afortunadamente todo está bien for acá... sólo Alex y su camionera olieron como a bombero durante unos días :)  thank you very much to all for your concern about the fire, thankfully everything is fine here... just Alex and his truck smelled like a fireman for a few days :)
 
les deseo un buen fin de semana a todos!
wishing a great weekend for all!
