PPM


Last Saturday I visited Prague. There was 13th Prague Patchwork Meeting. I didn't go there to buy stuff but I have bought some :) Little addition to my rainbow collection.


Cute foxes print.


Some panels as well. The main reason I went to Prague was to meet with my friend (hello Zuzka :))
Here are few quilts that caught my eye. I think they are all from the International Quilts collection. Artists from Poland, Ukraine, Sweden, Germany or Slovakia.
We are pretty small country so this is just a small exhibit. Nothing like we all know from the Instagram when QuiltCon or others takes place. There are a lot of art quilts or variations of traditional themes which are not really my thing so I don't even have a pics of those. Here are just few that I liked.

Q1 - softies


I finished those bears while ago but for some reason I did not share here. Since it is the last call to link up finishes for Q1 I'm making up this post.


Here is my original list: Q1 FAL list


I used both sides of the material.


I modified the original pattern for a bear. Just enlarged the ears and nose.


It was not the best quarter but that's fine 2/5

Q1 - cushion 5X


Here we go! My first finish from Q1 FAL list.


I got this idea when I was making the list back in January.


It doesn't have perfectly matching zipper but it is hidden anyway :) I'm breaking up my own rules.


See. The back is just plain and simple.


The whole design is pretty simple. It is a gift for male for 50th birthday so I was not aiming for anything girly and fancy. Each cross represents 10 years. 50 = 5 crosses. Plus the cushion is 50x50cm. The binding finished the cover pretty nicely.


1 goal down, 4 to go .. I'll be linking up with:

Q1 FAL list


Let's make a list! Q1 FAL list. I'm taking different approach this year. Have you noticed? :)
I'll stop putting on my wishful list and actually concentrate on projects I want to give or use. Plus there is not enough space on that board :)


1. softies - well that is ongoing project. I almost made it but still need to fill up and finish.


2. bag redo - you could also see that one last year. The plan is turn it into fanny pack. I need to put my phone and keys somewhere when I don't have pockets available.


3. cushions - that is my OMG goal for January. Still untouched.


4. pouches - not much progress on this pile either


5. cushion 5x - that is my latest idea. Make a Bday cushion for someone who turns 50 soon with 5 X on it. We'll see.

That's it. Sorry for bad light but daylight is something I don't get too much lately and I only have few hours left to link up my list. Yeah, nothing like a deadline pressure!

OMG - 01

Hello New Year! Don't you love new beginnings? I do :) I would give myself many NY resolutions if only I knew I'll going to keep them. I know I can keep them for a week or two, maybe a month but I can not go on the whole year that would actually mean I have to change myself, my behaviour, habits and I do not want to go that far. I rather stay negligent and I'll let things go and flow.


Of course I want to be better :) to myself, to others, to blog more, to do things that makes me happy more often. Everyone wants to do that and I guess that is natural.


I'll start the year with OMG goal just because I love the name of this linky. I try to link and finish at least 6 OMG projects this year! That's a neat resolution isn't it?


For January I picked up cushion making. Two cushions to be precise. I have this pretty fabric and I know exactly to whom am I going to give them. Nothing fancy, just plain pretty cushions. I need to buy appropriate zippers because zipper must match. That's rule No.1 right!
