被子饰面 - 蜡染山脉
I’m pretty sure I was tipsy topsy turvy when I was taking these series of photos of my Batik Mountains quilt. That’s not just some pretty foliage I’ve used as the backdrop, those are Shiraz grape vines ready for the picking! A few minutes before this I was
day drinking美丽的葡萄酒品尝Bunnamagoo Winery在Mudgee，NSW。我很确定我在菜单上抽出每葡萄酒，然后继续购买一瓶！这就是葡萄酒品尝通常如何去的葡萄酒？好吧，我已经知道他们应该总是包括绗缝！
这个蜡染山被子诞生了我渴望制作另一个美味的山被子，如最后一个我做了，颤抖着,仍然是一个全明星。我没有任何智慧h my stash of batik fabrics in such a long time–it seemed the logical place to start. I love a bright and bold batik, (as much as I love a bright and bold lip) and as you can see from this quilt I wasn’t afraid of using them all! If you’re new to batiks, or find them too traditional, check out Alison Glass’s many Handcrafted ranges for batik-style fabrics that keep it modern.
I’m pretty sure there was wine involved when it came time to figure out how to piece this together too! Most Delectable Mountains patterns construct mountains with a designated background fabric–usually of the low volume variety. Additionally, constructing mountains out of duplicate, facing-HSTs speeds up the process, but doesn’t allow you to join the mountains with four other different, surrounding mountains. So basically, I had to deconstruct the most common pattern instructions, and then rewrite them to suit my needs. The end process means making HSTs one at a time, careful rotations, and a lot of visualisation!
我在蚱蜢中使用了艾莉森玻璃水手的布，为这个特殊的装订时刻。我最近在我的LQ上发现了它在我的LQ上买了一米，只是为了实验。我还没有在任何拼凑而成的拼凑而成，但我认为纹理和音调条纹会产生出色的触觉绑定。y'all注意：我错了！如果您仔细观察，您还可以看到我的闪光点击绑定 - 我的签名商标为每个被子。然而，这一次，我带着额外的痛苦来用邻近的山区线，所以创造的线条在眼睛上很容易。事实上，我知道一些关于这个的事情！喵。
I backed it with Newsprint wide-backing by Carrie Bloomston, and it was quilted by my fave, your fave, everyone’s fave, Leanne at登上文森特Quilts.。金线，她说！（就像我要说的那样！）一旦我开始看到这个被子一起走到一起，我知道这只是一个练习件，以便稍后成为我的东西彩虹山quilt. The twists and turns required to get the mountains placed correctly was a bit of a mind-fuck, but once you understand how the layout and fabric works, you can gather momentum to get right ’round those peaks and valleys.
