Bloggers' Quilt Festival


Amy van Amy's Creative Side bied 'n Kwiltfees aan. Daar is, soos altyd, wonderlike en asemrowende kwilte om te sien en bewonder. Ek het besluit om my Raggedy Ann and Friends kwilt in te skryf.

Amy from Amy's Creative Side is hosting a Quilt Festival. There is, as always, lots of wonderful and inspiring quilts to see and admire. I decided to enter my Raggedy Ann and Friends quilt.


Vir diegene wat nie gereeld my blog lees nie, Raggedy Ann and Friends is 'n kwilt wat ontwerp en aangebied is as 'n BOM deur Kaaren Johnson van The Painted Quilt. Kaaren het haar kwilt in 'n "scrappy style" gemaak. My weergawe is gedoen in skakerings van bruin, om 'n sjokolade voorkoms te gee. Deur die BOM te volg, het daar 'n paar vriendskappe ontstaan, en het ek 'n paar nuwe tegnieke en patrone geleer.  Toe die BOM begin het, het ek skaars 2 jaar gekwilt, en was dus nog baie nuut in die wêreld van kwilte.

Die kwilt bestaan uit laswerk en borduurwerk. Dit is 197cm (77.5 inch) x 156cm (61.4 inch). Ek het dit met die naaldwerkmasjien gekwilt, deur reguitlyn-kwiltwerk metodes te gebruik. Die kwilt is in April 2012 voltooi.

For those not familiar to my blog, Raggedy Ann and Friends is a quilt designed and hosted as a BOM by Kaaren Johnson from The Painted Quilt. Kaaren made her quilt as a scrappy quilt. My version is made in shades of brown, to give it the chocolate look. By following the BOM, friendships were formed and I learned a few new techniques and patterns. At the time the BOM started, I  only quilted for 2 years, and was thus still very new in the quilting world.

The quilt consist of patchwork and embroidery. It measures 197cm (77.5 inch) x 156cm (61.4 inch). I machine quilted it, using straight line quilting methods. The quilt was finished in April 2012.

Hier is nog 'n paar foto's: / Here are a few more photos:

  2. Indien hierdie kwilt dalk "voete" kry, hoef jy nie ver te soek nie!!! Jou kwilte is almal pragtig, maar hierdie een staan vir my 'n rapsie uit bo die ander. Hou duimvas vir jou!

  5. Hi Lorna

    The embroidery took me about 1-2 weeks per block, as I found the time. The piecing took me about two days per block.
