Today I post in english :)
The reason I do so, is beacuse of my submission to the great “Blogger´s Quilt Festival”, that Amy from Park City Girl is greatfully hosting.
First I tought to submit my latest quilt – I really love it, and so seams many of my readers :)
But enough is enough, and I have another great quilt that I really, really love, my “dutchman´s puzzle quilt”:
I finished it last halloween, exactly on the 31st October.
It took me about 6 months to c0mplete (between other projects) and started with this color combination:
All wonderfull fabrics, with typical autum colors: brown, orange & yellow.
Then it started to gain some shape, although I was not sure about the final outcome.
I ended up making a dutchman´s puzzle, beacuse – call me crazy – I love sewing patchwork triangles.
I started playing with the fabrics and these were the firts blocks to be born:
It has 24 blocks (none of them is exactly alike), 192 big triangles, 384 small ones, and a total of 9 different fabrics.
It measures 1.60m x 2.35m.
Despite the many solicitations, I couldn´t separate myself from this beauty and I didn´t sell it.
It lives on the twin boys´ room, and they love it :)
This is the final picture, on my rooftop:
