Juuri kun olin valitsemassa mallia, Suzy Quilts kysyi, haluaisinko testata hänen 21.9.17 julkaistavan Fly Away mallinsa. Malli on nuorekas, moderni ja yksinkertainen ja se sopi paremmin kuin hyvin tähän tarkoitukseen. Toisesta, jo aikaisemmin testaamastani mallista tuli myös tosi kiva.
Peitto tulee sohvalle, eikä sänkypeitoksi, joten se ei tarvitse olla niin suuri.
Tilkkupajassa tehdyt tikkaukset. Ensin oli ajatus tehdä ihan vaan suoraa tikkiä mutta päädyin sitten tuohon aaltomaiseen. Tämä oli oikein mukava työ tehdä ja toimii monen värisenä.
My daughter is moving away to her first own home. I think she was so happy about it that she asked me to make a quilt for her. She didn't have to ask twice when I was already choosing fabrics.
Timing was very good since Suzy Quilts asked me if I wanted to make her new Fly Away pattern, releasing 21 september. The pattern is youthful, modern and simple. The quilt I tested earlier turned out really nice too.
I ended up with the ombre design and little black for a light background. There were five different sizes but I chose the Throw 54" x 62".
I was so exited to sew that I cut way too many pieces and made one extra row for every triangle. It might look good too but I wanted to follow the pattern. Now I have some squares for an other quilt too.
Long arm quilting is made by Töölön tilkkupaja. At first I was thinking straight lines but these waves give some movement.
This was really fun quilt to make and it's important for me. The name and meaning of the quilt is so current. It's so wonderful that my daughter leaves home with happy smile on her face and learns to live her own life. It's also so sad... maybe I'll get used to empty and quiet home. This is the way how life goes. Linking up with finish it up friday.
