Blogger's Quilt Festival: Postage Stamp Quilt






Este verano quería hacerle una colcha para la cama de mi madre y me decidí en el diseño al ver el postage stamp quilt along del blog PS I Quilt .
En cuanto a las telas ya tenía un jelly roll que me iba perfecto ya que quería algo tradicional en tonos marrones no muy oscuro, es Faith de Collection for a Cause de Moda. Para combinar quería algo neutro y me decidí por Kona Cotton en Stone.  

This summer I wanted to make a quilt for my mother's bed and I knew what pattern would I use when I saw the postage stamp quilt along from the PS I Quilt blog
Regarding the fabrics I already had the perfect jelly roll as I wanted something traditional and in browns but not too dark, it's Faith - Collection for a Cause by Moda. For the solids I wanted something neutral and chose Kona cotton in Stone.


Cambié el tamaño un poco añadiendo más filas al largo de cuadrados que sobraban y añadí un borde alrededor del mismo color Stone. Con más restos y un poco más de telas hice unas fundas para los cojines y la bolsa donde guarda el pijama.

I changed the size a little bit by adding more squares at the bottom with some I had left and I added a border of Kona Stone. With more remnants and a bit more fabric I made two cover for the cushions and the bag where she keeps her pyjamas.


Finalmente acolché en lineas rectas haciendo una cuadrícula, pero no sobre las costuras (las había planchado abiertas) sinó por la mitad de cada cuadrado. Me costó un poco porque era la primera vez que acolchaba una colcha y por el tamaño, pero a pesar de los fallos salió bastante decente. Para la guata utilice de lana Hobbs.

Finally I quilted in straight lines making squares, but not on the ditch (as I has press opened the seams). It was quite difficult as it was the first time I machine quilted and the size, but although it's full of mistakes I'm quite happy with it. I used Hobbs wool batting.

Lo mejor, ¡la sorpresa que se llevó mi madre cuando se la encontró colocada en su cama tras volver de vacaciones! Os dejo el link para ver el resto de entradas al Blogger's Quilt Festival 
¡A disfrutar!

  2. THIS IS WONDERFUL! I also participated in the postage stamp quilt-a-long, but haven't done anything with the top yet. I like the idea of adding extra borders. I'm also always on the hunt to see how people quilt this project. You did a fantastic job... But it looks like a LOT of work. :)
