Vieux livre / Dust Off a Quilt Book today 📚

Un challenge amusant !
A fun challenge!


Aujourd'hui c'est Ă  mon tour de participer au blog hop "DĂ©poussiĂšre un livre de patch" de Bea de Beaquilter.
L'idée est de reprendre un vieil ouvrage qui dort sur une étagÚres, et de réaliser quelque chose de ce livre.
J'ai fini par choisir American Quilts, Quilting & Patchwork d'Adelaide Hechtlinger, publiĂ© en 1974.
Oui c'est vieux, mais c'Ă©tait une instruction de Bea : plus le livre est ancien, mieux c'est !

Today is my stop on the hop for "Dust off A Quilt Book" Blog Hop Challenge hosted by Bea at Beaquilter.
The idea is to find an old quilt book on your shelf and make something from it.
I ended up choosing "American Quilts, Quilting & Patchwork" by Adelaide Hechtlinger, published in 1974.
Yes it's an old book, but it was part of the instuctions given by Bea: the older the better!




A la page 153 j'ai trouvé un bloc que j'aime bien : un cercle, avec des courbes, le Flywheel ou Volant.
J'ai modifié la taille du bloc, de 18'' (46 cm) je l'ai réduit à 7'' (18 cm), et supprimé les pointes.

My quilt was inspired by the Flywheel pattern, page #153. I changed the size of the block from 18" finished to 7" finished, and removed the points.




Ce cercle, je voulais en faire une lune, Ă  la maniĂšre de la couverture d'un album pour enfant que j'aime beaucoup, l'Ours et la Lune :

I wanted to make a moon with this circle, inspired by the cover of a children’s album that I love very much, the Bear and the Moon:

L'ours et la lune

Un album Ă©crit par CĂ©cile Alix, et illustrĂ© par Antoine GuilloppĂ© : dans le grand froid polaire, l’ours et la lune rĂȘvent de voyage... Une trĂšs belle histoire d'amitiĂ©, de fraternitĂ©, dans la collection "Pont des arts" qui fait dĂ©couvrir l'art aux enfants.

An album written by CĂ©cile Alix, and illustrated by Antoine GuilloppĂ©: in the great polar cold, the bear and the moon dream of travel... A very beautiful history of friendship, brotherhood, in the collection "Pont des arts" that makes children discover art.


Cet album est inspirĂ© de l'Ours Blanc du sculpteur François Pompon, une statue en pierre (163 x 251 cm), exposĂ©e au MusĂ©e d'Orsay.

This album is inspired by the sculptor François Pompon’s White Bear, a stone statue (64'' x 99''), on display at the MusĂ©e d'Orsay.



RĂ©alisation de la lune (bloc Volant) :

Making of the Moon (Flywheel block):



J'ai utilisé du freezer paper, de l'eau et un fer à repasser pour rabattre les coutures, et de la colle à tissu pour assembler les piÚces. Un nouveau challenge pour moi : la couture de courbes.

I used freezer paper, some water and an iron for the seams, then fabric glue for assembling the pieces together. A new challenge to me: sewing curves.



Les marges de coutures sont collées, il ne reste plus qu'à coudre à la machine en suivant le pli.

The seams allowance are glued together, I just have to follow the fold with the sewing machine needle.


Assemblées deux par deux, jusqu'à obtenir le cercle.
Assembled into pairs, until I get the circle.


Puis le centre, appliqué à la main.
Then the center, needle turned appliqué.



Comme la lune va ĂȘtre appliquĂ©e sur un fond sombre, j'ai ajoutĂ© un thermocollant pour que les coutures se voient moins en transparence.

As the moon will be applied on a dark background, I added a fusble web so that the seams are less transparent.



Et voilà la lune, appliquée sur le fond :
And here is the Moon, appliquéd on the background:



Ensuite la banquise (vous vous souvenez l'avoir vue lĂ  ?) :
Then the iceberg (do you remember seeing it there?):


Et enfin l'ours. En polaire bien sûr ;-)
And finally, the bear. In fleece, polar fabric in French ;)



AprÚs plusieurs tests, je n'aimais pas le rendu de l'appliqué machine avec le point de satin pour cet ours, ni plusieurs autres options. J'ai fini par choisir de l'appliquer à la main, au point droit.

I tested satin stitch machine appliqué for the bear but didn't like it, nor several other options. I ended up choosing to apply it by hand,with a straight stitch.


Et voilĂ  ! Un peu de molleton sous la lune pour la faire ressortir.
And voilĂ ! A layer of batting to make the Moon pop up.


Quilting en Ă©cho autour de la lune, et autour de la glace. Un nez, une truffe.
Echo quilting around the Moon, and around the iceberg. An eye, a nose.


Grand Nord (Up North), 15.5'' x 23'' (40 x 60 cm), 2020.

Couture sur papier, appliqué main, quilté machine.
FPP, hand appliqué, machine quilted.

  1. Oooh, very cool. It's always fun to try something out from older books. It's like making something new/vintage.

  9. The polar scene is delightful. Thank you for sharing the process. It was interesting to see how you put the moon together. The "facets" you've created for the iceberg really make it look 3 dimensional.

  19. Magnifique! (I've heard it called polar fleece in English too--a fun play on words.)

  26. Quel joli quilt ! J'adore le quilting en echo.

  27. Bonjour Frédérique, j'aime beaucoup ta création! C'est vraiment mignon. C'est intéressant d'utiliser des "templates" - on en utilise de moins en moins, mais parfois, c'est ça qui est le mieux. Félicitation! Merci d'avoir lié ton article à Free Motion Mavericks.

  28. What a beautiful quilt! Fun to see how to sew the quilt together.

  29. This is SO cool, Frederique! I wish I could see that children's book but, if it's in French, it's probably not in the book stores in the USA. Using that Flywheel block for the moon is so imaginative and effective, and I love how you mixed different fabric types to get a shimmering moon and a furry bear contrasting with the hard geometry of the iceberg. You did a great job on your curved seams and the echo quilting around the moon just makes it seem to glow.

    RĂ©pondreSupprimer
  30. Oh very interesting! And a wonderful result.
