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.

For The Love Of (Free) Labels Part 1

Just search free labels on the blog and you’ll see what I mean, hehe. So to my fellow label whor hoarders out there, here’s another roundup of some of my faves for your downloading pleasure. For organizing, gift tagging, addressing or packaging just about everything– wedding-related or not. Add your own text, print onto adhesive sheets or plain cardstock, then cut. Easy peasy. P.S.

And for some Tuscan (Provence?) Flair, I’m loving the garland embellished with citrus fruits. The beautiful green leaves and the aromatic citrus fruits (not to mention the yummy mix of royal blues and yellows!) A Little Hut - Patricia Zapata. A l'ombre du marronnier. I don't care for what Facebook does to my sanity, my time or my image.

Before I dive into explaining all that, please don't take this personally if you're someone that enjoys Facebook. These are simply my ideas and experiences with the site. Angry chicken. I made this arrangement last month.

I forgot how pretty it was. I am trying to do at least one arrangement a month, if not every two weeks, using Trader Joe's flowers, or items from the yard. So pleasing. This week got crazy.
