Getting organised.

I am getting myself organised. And I have done, I think.

準備万端に向けて、突進中です。ちゃんとできたと思います。多分。

I have designed two more La Passacaglia quilt blocks. All are basted/tacked on the paper templates. Yep I sewed like crazy!

ラ・パサカグリアのブロックをもう二つデザインして、しつけを完了しました。

I don’t know what I am going to do with them when I finished sewing those small pieces together. Hope I get some idea soon. Here is the first one just in case you haven’t seen it.

すべて縫いつないだ後、どこにどう発展をしていくのか今のところ全く不明ですが、のんびり行きたいと思います。ちなみに一つ目のブロックはこんな感じです。

In order to do carry sewing necessaries, I made a needle case too.

裁縫用具用の小さな鞄も作りました。

The front is made by quilt as you go method with scraps. Inside, there are two large pockets on the left and four narrow pockets on the right. I put scraps of wadding instead of felt and hoping it won’t get shredded. There is a snap fastener attached onto the tape which holding my favourite scissors.

外側は、キルト芯に直接生地を縫い付けていく、キルト・アズ・ユー・ゴーで作りました。左手には大きなポケットを二つ、右手には細身のポケットを四つ。フェルトではなく木綿のキルト芯を張り止めに使いました。鋏の止め紐には、ホックボタンが付いています。

 

I have designed what to do for Mighty Lucky Quilting Club for June. This month’s specialist is Angela Walter of Quilting is my therapy. Last few years of my free motion quilting development has been influenced by her very much and I am delighted to do another challenge run by her. We are quilting letters/words this time.

六月のマイティラッキークラブは、デザインだけできました。今月の先生は、私の大好きなアンジェラ・ウォルターさん。ここ数年の私のフリーモーションは子の方にものすごく影響を受けております。なので彼女からのキルティングのチャレンジは大歓迎です。そして今回は、字を書きます。

Well, that was difficult in various reasons. I can just quilt some words like my name but I have done that last year. I don’t know what sentence to write/quilt anyway. And then I wanted to quilt a ward or quote to inspire. As you know English is not first language and it is not easy to point one favourite or inspiring words/quote for me. And then finally penny dropped.

“Walk, don’t run”.

I just like it right now. Then I had to find very nice font which goes with that quote and this is the result. This font is called “She always walk alone”, if you are interested.

はて、と壁にぶつかりました。普通に字を書くキルティングは去年やってしまったので、またやってしまっても(別に上手になったとは申しませんが)。英語はまだまだ勉強中なので、これだという一句が浮かんできません。いろいろ考えた挙句、はっと浮かんだのは、

”のんびり行こう” (辞書では急がば回れとありますが、私的にはこっちのほうがピンと来るので)

次に、この言葉に合うフォント探し。いろいろ見回って”She always walk alone”が、一番いいなと。

There will be a lot of quilting on the background but that has to wait a while.

これ何がどうなるか今のところ全くわかりませんが、こうご期待を。

  1. Your la passacaglia is breathtaking, I can empathize with all the work that is already in it and can hardly think of how much is still to be done!
    The challenge sounds really interesting, I love challenges))

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough
    for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    net will be much more useful than ever before.
