Interior Decorating on a Budget Blog. PATCHWORK : Le quilting ou matelassage. Vendredi 6 novembre 2009 5 06 /11 /Nov /2009 22:08 Si vous avez essayé d’assembler les faces du patchwork comme je l’expliquais ici, peut-être souhaitez-vous le quilter à la manière traditionnelle ?

PATCHWORK : Le quilting ou matelassage

Pour cela, il faut prévoir un tissu de doublure un peu plus grand que votre patchwork. Choisissez-le de préférence assez souple pour faciliter le matelassage à la main, à moins que vous ne préfériez utiliser une machine à coudre. Les deux tissus seront positionnés envers contre envers. Entre les deux, on intercale du molleton polyester, dont la taille sera identique à celle de la doublure. Pour quilter, il faut maintenir les trois couches entre-elles en les cousant à très larges points avec un fil à bâtir.

Le motif du quilt peut tout simplement être un motif géométrique simple réalisé à l’œil, ou bien suivre les coutures des blocs de patch. Je préfère quilter en tenant mon ouvrage dans la main gauche, mais certains utilisent un tambour à broder. Ces derniers sont de simples points devant. IKEA Hackers. A small bite of mondocherry.

The SoHo. All Things Lovely. I am little obsessed with Instagram at the moment, especially since I'm doing the Photo A Day challenge. Friends sometimes ask what apps I use for all my photos so I thought I'd share my favourites. This isn't a sponsored post, just my favourite and most used apps. I take the majority of my photos just with the camera on the iPhone. I never use the camera in the Instagram App, and will only edit my photos in Instagram if I'm in a hurry. I do love the Brannan filter though. Mt first normal step is to open the photo on Afterlight. Things Organized Neatly. Things Organized Neatly.
