Uuups... a unicorn poops... {Rainbow Quilt}

Hello again... My second entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival is my "uuups... a unicorn poops!" quilt... 
It is a simple rainbow charm pack quilt with a lot of space for negativ space quilting. I use this top for a example to show how quilting an a longarm machine at a exipition last year. The negative space was no problem. I divided the space in six sections and use at every section an other pattern. Always alternating a freemotion motiv and straigt line ruler work...
 
But for a long time I don't know what I to do with the rainbow squares until I have this idea... I saw with my inner eyes an abstract pixel poops from a unicorn... LoL... And then I know what I must quilted in these squares... stars... a unicorn poops stars, right?!
I'm just a little bit crazy... That's normal...
 
That's the whole story about this crazy title...
 While I took the photos I had two grasshoppers to visit...
 
Hello little beauty... 
The bloggers quilt festival was a good reason to make photos from this quilt! Then, I never did it befor! Shame on me! Just a quick shoot in my studio, but no outdoor photos! 
So I catch my little daughter and drive at the hill and search a good place to take photos... first stop was in the forst... an unicorn you find most time in a mystic forest, or not?... We found just the unicorn poops... lol again...
 
Sorry it's really late and my fantasy goes on... I write this text in my bed before I sleep. That's the best time for me to write in english... I'm tired and the words stream so easy out of my brain... So funny...  
But I digress... Back to the hill... We goes through the forest and found a nice place with view to the mount pilatus... The sun was warm but can you see the snow on the mountain?! Winter is coming! This is the first snow this fall! We can feel the snow in the wind and it was really windy! First my daughter hold the quilt and I take the photos but not for long. It was to difficult for she. So we switch our place, I hold and she takes the photos! She makes a really god job! A lot was blurry but between I found a few really good shoots! Kids learns so fast... 
And for the End... Here is my unicorn... At the label... A little unicorn with a great p**ps... oke, now is enough! I stopping... and say thank you, when you read this whole crazy words...

Geese Gathering {Blogger's Quilt Festival}

Hi there
It's fall and a new Blogger's Quilt Festival is going on hosted by Amy Ellis from Amys Creative Side


Here is my entry... My "Geese Gathering" Quilt...
I got the idea for this quilt during a flying geese mini quilt swap I participated in. Flying geese are one of my most favourite patterns...
 I created this block in my CAD program, then I mirrored the block and build the whole quilt layout. I tried different colorways and choose one with an ombré effect...
 I have cut my fabric color card to choose the perfect color run...
 Then onto the backing… A stripe of all the colores I used in the front! Just turquoise would have been too boring!...
 This quilt was over two weeks in the longarm frame and I worked on it for approximately 45 hours. I quilted a mix between ruler work and freemotion quilting...
Geometry is my thing. I love it since I learned it in 7th grade. The quilting on this quilt is very geometric. I tried to make a second layer just with the quilting. I hope you can see it. White is really
hard to photograph.
 
 
 
 Quilt Stats:
Quilt Size: 86" x 86"
Quilt Pattern: by me "Geese Gathering"
Fabric: Cotton Supreme solids from RJR Fabrics

 Pieced: by me
Quilted: by me



I know I show this quilt a few weeks ago but this is the rule, a new post this week... I'm sorry for anyone who has already seen this quilt...

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice week

Butterflies Quilt {Wellenlinien quilten}

Vielleicht habt ihr diesen Quilt schon auf dem BERNINA Blog gesehen... Ich möchte euch ihn aber auch auf meinem Blog vorstellen. Unsere lokale Quiltgruppe hat gemeinsam an diesem Butterflies Quilt gearbeitet um einer lieben Mitquilterin auf ihrem Genesungsweg eine Freude zu bereiten.
 Die kleinen Schmetterlinge sind von Lillyella und als Paper Piecing Freepattern erhältlich. So habe ich allen unseren Bee-nchen drei Schmetterlings-Pattern mitgegeben und es sind ganz wunderbare und einzigartige Schmetterlinge daraus entstanden. Einzige Vorgabe war, als Hintergrundstoff Low Volume zu verwenden. Hat bestens geklappt! Dankeschön Ladies ♥
 Gequiltet habe ich diesen 1.50 x 2.15 m grossen Quilt auf der BERNIA B790 da ich einen bestimmten Stich im Kopf hatte. Aufmerksame Leser wissen vielleicht, dass ich aber eine B780 mein Eigen nennen darf und diese hat diesen Stich leider nicht im Programm. Weiter fällt vielleicht auch die Frage, warum macht sie das nicht auf der Longarm?! Tja, der Platz der Longarm war zu der Zeit leider leer, da ich auf die Lieferung meiner neuen wartete und ja, es wird eine BERNINA Q24 *freu*
Freundlicher Weise stellte mir BERNINA Schweiz kurzfristig die B790 zur Verfügung um meine Lücke zu überbrücken und so konnte ich den Butterflies Quilt doch noch rechtzeitig fertig stellen! Dankeschön dafür ♥
 Auf dem BERNINA Blog findet ihr die Anleitung, wie ihr solche Wellenlinien mit der B790 oder der B770 quilten könnt. Die Anleitung gilt auch für das Quilten von geraden Linien mit dem Obertransportfuss, also schaut vorbei auch wenn ihr keine B790 oder B770 habt...
 Der Quilt wurde in unserer Gruppe übergeben und fährt nun mit der glücklichen Besitzerin an den Atlantik in die Ferien...
 Der grosse Schmetterling ist ebenfalls von Lillyella, jedoch kein Freepattern. Ich find ihn einfach genial schön! Falls ihr ihn auch nähen möchtet, ich verlink euch ihren Shop.
Ganz im Sinne dieses Quilts... Habt eine luftig-leichte Woche...

Iva
