New Year Quilting Challenges: Barn Door Quilt-a-long at Sarah Quilts, including tutorials

I'm ready to start with this year's quilting challenges! The first challenge starts today and is Sarah's Barn Door Quilt-A-Long at Sarah Quilts:

Sono pronta per le sfide quilting di quest'anno! La prima sfida inizia oggi ed è il Barn Door Quilt-A-Long (porta del fienile!) sul blog Sarah Quilts:


Isn't it striking?! I fell in love with this quilt as soon as I saw it. 
And this is where we are starting, right from the middle of the hourglass!

Non ti colpisce?! Io mi sono innamorata di questo quilt appena l'ho visto. E questo è il punto dal quale iniziamo, proprio il centro della clessidra!

Esempi con due versioni diverse


As I've decided to join the Fabriholics Anonymous over at Rebecca's blog Making Rebecca Lynne (more about this fabric fast in another post...), I had a look at my stash and decided to use some Japanese fabrics. Here are a few photos of my fabric, all printed by Lecien: 

Dato che ho deciso di aderire al Fabriholics Anonymous (per stoffe-dipendenti!) presso il blog Making Rebeca Lynne di Rebecca (scriverò di questo digiuno dell'acquisto di stoffe in un'altro post...), ho guardato tra la mia scorta di stoffe ed ho deciso di usare delle stoffe giapponesi. Ecco alcune foto della mia stoffa, tutte stampate da Lecien:

Now I have to start cutting!

Adesso devo iniziare a tagliare!

  1. Ack! Every time someone posts a 2014 goal, I want to add it to my list of projects to make. I may need to make a resolution to make no more resolutions! ☺

  2. I think it was nice of me to design the quilt-a-long button to match your fabric choices so well! :) I love your peaches! I can't wait to see it start coming together. Thanks for blogging about it!

  3. Your color palette is so soft and beautiful! The quilt designed for the Barn door quilt along is stunning! Hope you will have lots of fun making it.

  4. Not my kind of thing but I like your fabric choice :-)

  5. I am sew excited to see your progress! Lovely fabrics for this project, Nesta! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love the soft peaceful colors that you've chosen for the quilt along. Can't wait to see you at the linky parties.

  7. I'm participating in this quilt a long as well! It's so fun to see what fabrics everyone is choosing. I really like the palette you decided on!

  8. I hope to participate too but have not even started looking at my fabric stash to see if anything will work. Good luck and I think your fabric choices are very pretty!

  9. I love the quilt also. I saw the thumbnail on Freshly Pieced and just had to come over to see the lovely quilt. I am in awe of your lovely Japanese prints. They are very peaceful. Good luck with your quilt along!

  10. Beautiful fabrics and I can't wait to see more of this! Thanks for sharing.
