Huahine, Modern Bargello / A finished top đŸŽ”

Le top de Modern Bargello, ou encore Huahine, est terminĂ©. 
Modern Bargello, or Huahine, is a flimsy!

Huahine, Modern Bargello

Tout a commencĂ© par un coup de coeur pour le modĂšle dessinĂ© par Mary Hattick, des carrĂ©s de plus en plus petits, assemblĂ©s en bandes dĂ©calĂ©es. J'ai redessinĂ© le modĂšle, avec plus de carrĂ©s, et plus de bandes.

It all started with a crush on the pattern designed by Mary Hattick, smaller and smaller squares assembled in shifted strips. I redesigned the pattern, with more squares, and more strips.



Pour celui-ci, j'ai eu envie de couleurs, autres que du bleu. En fait ces derniers temps je n'ai fait que des quilts bleus ! Il y a eu Grand Nord, Australis, et Interwoven. Allez hop, du rouge maintenant !
En fouillant dans ma boßte de tissus rouges, j'ai trouvé cet imprimé étoilé, qui fait un peu Noël. Humm, c'est de saison... allez, adopté !

For this one, I wanted colors, other than blue. In fact, lately I've been doing nothing but blue quilts! There was Grand Nord, Australis, and Interwoven. Let's go for red now!
While rummaging through my box of red fabrics, I found this star fabric print, which is a little bit Christmassy. Hmmm, it's in season... ok, adopted!



Des bandes, des bandes et encore des bandes... 
Strips, strips and more strips...



Et encore quelques bandes !
And a few more strips!



La bande 1 devient des carrés
Strip #1 turns into squares



Les autres bandes deviennent des rectangles. NumĂ©ros impairs pour les piĂšces qui seront reliĂ©es par une petite bordure : les 2 bandes qui restent seront coupĂ©es au fur et Ă  mesure. 

The other strips become rectangles. Odd numbers for the pieces that will be connected by a sashing: the 2 remaining strips will be cut as you go.

Assembling pieces into a new strip



ça grandit...
it's growing...


... encore un peu
... a little more


VoilĂ  toutes les piĂšces assemblĂ©es, et les bandes dĂ©calĂ©es. 
Et c'est lĂ  que mon Modern Bargello s'appelle Huahine, dans cette configuration. Si, si, vous allez comprendre !

Here are all the pieces assembled, and the strips offset. 
And this is where my Modern Bargello is called Huahine, in this configuration. Wait, you will understand!


Ceux et celles qui me connaissent savent mon attachement pour la Polynésie française, Tahiti et ses ßles. Et parmi ses ßles il y en a une qui s'appelle Huahine. TrÚs belle, encore sauvage, elle est chantée notamment par Angelo Neuffer, sur les paroles de feu Bobby Holcomb, 2 artistes trÚs connus localement.
Cette chanson, je l'ai trĂšs souvent dans la tĂȘte, mĂȘme encore maintenant. C'est "Huahine Te Tiara'a", et si vous Ă©coutez le solo Ă  2:27, vous entendrez une mĂ©lodie que mon chĂ©ri, musicien, a transcrit comme ça :

Those who know me know my love for the French Polynesia, Tahiti and its islands. And among its islands there is one called Huahine. Very beautiful, still wild, it is sung notably by Angelo Neuffer, on the lyrics of the late Bobby Holcomb, two very well known local artists.
This song, I have it very often in my head, even now. It's "Huahine Te Tiara'a", and if you listen to the solo at 2:27, you will hear a melody that my sweet husband, also a musician, transcribed like this:

VoilĂ , vous voyez, 8 notes : 3 qui descendent, 4 qui montent et 1 qui redescend. Mon quilt.
Here, you see, 8 notes: 3 going down, 4 going up and 1 going down. My quilt.


Maintenant c'est tous les jours que j'aurais cette chanson dans la tĂȘte 😂
Now it's every day I'll have this song in my head 😂
