A secret quilt

Às vezes não é fácil manter um segredo. Talvez se tenham questionado porque razão não fui mostrando os progressos do meu Four Seasons quilt (outono). Tinha fortes razões para isso. A minha parceira de swap era a Margaret, coordenadora do swap e portanto a única pessoa a conhecer a sua parceira “secreta”. Como podem ver eu não era tão secreta quanto isso e portanto só mostrei aqui uma imagem de uma parte muito pequenina para não lhe estragar a surpresa. Mas hoje ela disse-me que já o tinha recebido e pode por isso ser revelado a todos. Não respeitei as dimensões porque foi um quilt que cresceu por si e ficou um pouco maior que o esperado. O quilting foi feito à mão, em linhas densas que evidenciassem o desenho que imaginei. A Margaret gostou e isso é o mais importante. Agora o próximo round: o quilt Inverno. Já tenho o projecto na cabeça e formigueiros nas mãos.
Sometimes it is not easy to keep a secret. Maybe you have wondered why I didn’t show earlier the four seasons quilt (Fall) I made. I had a strong reason for that. My partner was Margaret, the swap coordinator, and she was the only one to know who her secret partner was. As you can see I was not as secret as that. I only posted a picture of a small part of the top but today Margaret told me she has received the quilt and now everyone can finally see what I did for her. I didn’t respect the dimensions because this quilt grew by itself and I couldn’t make it smaller as I should. I heavy handquilted it to pop up the lines and give the quilt the expression I desired.
Margaret liked it and I am happy that it pleased her. Now the next round: the Winter Season Quilt. I’m anxious to begin it.
