Curved Nine Patch Quilt

This quilt pattern was drafted by me following tutorial on Sew Kind of Wonderful “Curved Nine Patch”.

I have adjusted block making steps to my way to increase productivity. Nine patch blocks were made using strip piecing, cut in to blocks, press, and chain piecing technique.

I decided to give lots of negative space in between curved nine patches so quilting line will pop.

Two-Colour Quilts

Two-Colour Quilts have very sweet spot in my heart. I love how stitching of hand quilt pops on the solid color surface.

This image inspired me to combine Sew Kind of Wonderful Ruler use and simple vintage quilt block revival.

If you are interested in knowing what book I found those pictures, here’s the cover. I found this book at the used book store.

Here is my quick sketch. I don’t have solid red in my stash currently. I need to either shop solid red or make this in another color combination.

お金のトレー

久しぶりに日本のテレビ番組を見ていてふと思った。

アメリカにはレジで現金を乗せるあのトレーが存在しない。お金はお札、小銭にかかわらずキャッシャーに手渡しするものだ。しかもカード決済ならほとんどの場合店員さんはカードに触れない。

 

こういう小さな違いに気づくと面白い。
