Novo quilt e outras coisas (New quilt and other things)

Não tenho tecido suficiente para acabar o painel do bules e terei de esperar até sábado para comprar o que me falta. Entretanto apeteceu-me começar um trabalho mais leve e resolvi fazer um top para um quilt, simples em que a cor predominasse. Os tecidos já os comprei há tempos e estava mortinha por estreá-los. Gosto destas cores frescas e já primaveris.
No blog da Fionna encontrei esta belissima ideia de usar tabuleiros para organizar os patches. Coisas simples que resultam.
A propósito de coisas práticas encontrei hoje no flickr este tutorial para fazer uma almofada de agulhas. Das muitas que já vi poucas me agradaram tanto como esta. Já agora vale a pena ver a espetacular colecção de mini-almofadas feitas pela mesma autora.

I don’t have enough fabric to finished the teapots wall hanging backing and binding and I’ll have to wait until Saturday and go to the fabric shop. Meanwhile I felt like making a lighter project. I decided to make a top quilt where the colours should be predominant. The fabrics were already bought and I was very impatient to cut them. I love these vernal and fresh colours.
In Fionna’s blog I found this idea of using a tray to organize the patches. Simple but very useful.
Talking about useful things I found this interesting pincushion tutorial on flickr. It is a tiny little pincushion with very nice details. It is worth while to see this spetacular collection, the most wonderful I ever seen.

Those little pincushions are great!

A tray would make me feel organized as well and much prettier than just having them on a pile on the craft table.

Thanks for the link to the pincushion. I have a friend that makes little bottle cap pincushions like that, but she puts a little piece of looped elastic through the cap so it can be worn on your finger. Really handy when hand stitching.

Very pretty colours for the new quilt.
