Cherry blossom - vopsele Tulip

Flori de cires

A small piece about 9 "-7", a last work performed with my old Singer 7422 sewing machine.
I chose to work a sprig of cherry blossom against the background of a clear blue sky and on an extended field, with some mountains in the distance, all in pastel colors.
Un mic tablou de 9"-7" , o ultima lucrare executata cu vechea mea masina de cusut Singer 7422. Am ales un sa lucrez o crenguta de cires inflorit pe fondul unui cer senin si al unui camp intins, cu cativa munti in departare, totul in culori pastelate, primavaratice.

I purchased a set of Tulip paint in order to try to paint a piece of canvas and work on it then.Tulip paints are for canvas and in a wide variety of shades.
Am achizitionat un set de vopsele Tulip in ideea de a incerca sa vopsesc o bucata de panza pe care apoi sa o lucrez. Vopselele Tulip sunt speciale pentru panza, permanente , nontoxice si intr-o varietate mare de nuante.

Dyer consisted in using a small sponge imbued in paint and then painted canvas free movement.
Vopsitul a constat in utilizarea unui mic burete imbibat in vopsea si apoi cu miscari libere pictata panza

After I created the background of the canvas I left to dry it 24 hours, I iron it and then I applied sprig of cherry:I put a piece of cloth selected in specific color on to the painted canvas,then I put over waxpaper (waxed paper) with a drawing of sprig contour, outline that I followed with needle;I peeled wax paper then I cut around seamless to relief the sprig.
Dupa ce am creat background-ul am lasat panza sa se usuce 24 ore, am calcat-o iar apoi am aplicat crenguta de cires: am asezat o bucata de panza aleasa in culoarea specifica peste panza vopsita, peste ea am asezat waxpaper (hartia cerata)cu desenul contur al crengutei, contur pe care l-am urmarit cu acul ; am jumulit hartia cerata apoi am decupat pe langa cusaturi ca se reliefez crenguta.

Then, with a switch I applied paint with which I created abstracte cherry blossom over I have worked with freemotion.
Dupa aceea, cu un betisor am aplicat vopsea cu care am creat flori de cires abstracte peste care am lucrat cu freemotion.

Si "produsul" final

All painting is worked with freemotion with degrade or simply thread.
I like the result - I said this was an attempt ... but successful :);otherwise the folk quilt is worked in the same manner: painted on white canvas with Tulip, applications and freemotion. It's a difficult quilt, with a lot of details but I hope and must have patience to finish it.
And I introduce you my new friend .. a treasure for me worth which worth all the financially effort.
A perfect sewing machine for me with 38 pounds size and with multiple and great talents!
I love it!
See you soon!

Tot tabloul este lucrat cu freemotion cu ata in degrade sau simpla .
Imi place rezultatul- am spus ca a fost o incercare ...- de altfel si quiltul de inspiratie folclorica este lucrat in aceeasi maniera: vopsit pe panza alba cu Tulip , aplicatii si freemotion. E un quilt greu cu multe detalii dar sper si trebuie sa am rabdarea sa il termin.
Si va prezint noua mea prietena ..o scumpete si la propriu si la figurat dar merita
tot efortul :)

O masina perfecta pentru mine cu un gabarit de 38 pounds si cu inzestrari multiple si minunate!
O ador!
Pe curand!!

Ochre - "Desert sunset"

A quilt that had to participate at a competition in France but I decided not to attend given that my sewing machine let me off without any notice.I mean, it began work poorly and with all my efforts to adjust it I just did not to ruin my days trying to adjust .. It was strongly attached to the thread, it broke 4 needles, and so on...In short, it will be pensioned and I will buy a Janome how soon! Looking forward! :)
The "ochre" quilt is based on the idea of sunset in the desert more precisely on the colors of the specific and natural phenomenon. I strive to use and deals with materials that render more possible the natural phenomenon and sincerely I`m satisfied about the composition.
Technically I used rail fence quilt block adjusted for background. Curves are hand sewn in reverse applique and other elements are simple applications. The dark border are quilted with cactuses which are made in free motion technique.

Overall I like the grand result but I think I would have liked it more if I found some baticks in shades of specific ochre... the effect would have been spectacular! I had to thank with a stylized "desert sunset ".
Anyway, I hope you like the result.
Happy quilting and see you soon!!

Un quilt care ar fi trebuit sa participe la un concurs in Franta , insa am decis ca nu va participa avand in vedere faptul ca masina mea de cusut m-a lasat balta fara nici un preaviz. Adica a inceput sa lucreze prost si cu toate eforturile de a o regla nu am reusit decat sa -mi stric zilele in care am incercat sa o reglez. Si mi-a strans ata, mi -a rupt 4 ace , etc... Pe scurt, intra "la pensie" eu urmand sa-mi cumpar un Janome cat de curand! Abia astept!! :)
Quiltul "ocru" are ca baza ideea de apus de soare in desert mai exact culorile specifice acestui spectacol natural. M-am straduit sa evoc si sa folosesc materiale care sa redea cat mai natural fenomenul per ansamblu si sincer sunt multumita de compozitie.
Tehnic am folosit quilt block rail fence adaptate pentru fond. Curbele sunt cusute manual in reverse applique iar celelate elemente sunt aplicatii simple.Borderul inchis e quiltuit cu cactusi realizati cu free motion . Per ansamblu imi place combinatia rezultata insa cred ca mi-ar fi placut mai mult daca gaseam batikuri in nuante specifice de ocru...daca gaseam batikuri in nuante specifice de ocru...efectul ar fi fost specatculos! A trebuit sa ma multumesc insa cu un "desert sunset" stilizat .

Oricum, sper sa va placa ideea .
Spor la lucru si pe curand!!
