Vieux livre / Dust Off a Quilt Book Blog Hop 📚

Le défi avec les vieux livres oubliés est de retour !
The challenge with old forgotten books is back!

Aujourd'hui, et pour la deuxiĂšme annĂ©e, 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 livre qui dort sur mon étagÚre et qui prend la poussiÚre, et de réaliser un projet de ce livre.
L'annĂ©e derniĂšre, j'avais choisi un vieux livre de 1974, pour faire Grand Nord. Cette annĂ©e, c'est au tour de Patchwork from Mosaics de Helen Fairfield, publiĂ© en 1985.

Today, and for a second year, is my day 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 my shelf and make something from it.
Last year, I had chosen an old book from 1974 to make Up North. This year, it's the turn of Patchwork from Mosaics by Helen Fairfield, published in 1985.

"Patchwork from Mosaics: Patchwork from the Stones of Venice", est un livre de motifs inspirés des sols en pierre italiens.

"Patchwork from Mosaics: Patchwork from the Stones of Venice", is a book of patterns inspired by Italian stone floors.

A la page 29, il y a ce magnifique motif, Trefoil.
On page 29, there is this beautiful pattern, Trefoil.

J'ai cherchĂ© la traduction pour Trefoil, qui veut dire trĂšfle. Oui mais pour moi, trĂšfle en anglais se dit clover, ou shamrock. Alors quelles diffĂ©rences, pourquoi 3 mots ? 
En fait :
Clover est un trĂšfle, une plante du genre Trifolium
Shamrock est un jeune trĂšfle
Trefoil est un terme plus gĂ©nĂ©rique, qui dĂ©signe toute plante de la famille des pois, ayant des feuilles composĂ©es et trifoliĂ©es, dont le trĂšfle. C'est aussi un terme de l'architecture gothique, un symbole ayant la forme de telles feuilles.
Bon ok, va pour Trefoil 🍀

I looked up the translation for Trefoil, which means clover. Yes, but for me, the English word is clover, or shamrock. So what are the differences, why 3 words? 
Well, actually:
- A clover is a plant of the genus Trifolium
- A shamrock is a young clover
- A trefoil is a more generic term, which refers to any plant of the pea family with compound and trifoliate leaves, including clover. It is also a term from Gothic architecture, a symbol having the shape of such leaves.
Ok, let's go for Trefoil đŸ€

Dans le livre, les indications sont données pour construire le motif en piécé, mais j'ai préféré le faire en couture sur papier pour avoir un motif assez petit. J'ai choisi un tissu blanc, un jaune pùle et un jaune foncé pour avoir les 3 valeurs.

In the book, indications are given to piece the pattern, but I preferred to make it with the foundation paper piecing to have a rather small pattern. I chose a white, a light yellow and a dark yellow fabric to have the 3 values.

Pour l'assemblage, j'ai suivi les indications du livre, et cousu les triangles en colonnes. Chaque triangle fait 2 1/2'' (6 cm) de cÎté.

For the assembly, I followed the indications of the book, and sewed the triangles in columns. Each triangle is 2 1/2'' (6 cm) wide.

Puis j'ai retiré le papier, et équerré pour obtenir un rectangle.
Then I removed the paper, and squared to have a rectangle.

Dans mon stock j'ai ce tissu marron-doré à chevrons, il sera parfait pour le dos !
In my stash I have this golden-brown chevron fabric, it will be perfect for the backing!

Un quilting tout simple, pour faire ressortir les trĂšfles. J'ai mis 2 couches de moleton polyester pour plus de volume.
A very simple quilting, to make pop up the trefoils. I put 2 layers of polyester batting for more volume.

Un biais jaune pĂąle pour terminer l'ensemble, et voilĂ  !
Ce mini mesure 9'' x 7'' (environ 23 cm x 18 cm).

A pale yellow bias to finish the set, and voilĂ !
This mini is 9'' x 7'' (approximately 23 cm x 18 cm).

Les pointes ne sont pas parfaites, mais j'aime bien mon mini quilt (mug rug plutĂŽt !). C'est tentant d'en faire un plus grand, avec le motif plus grand aussi, pour que les intersections soient plus prĂ©cises. A suivre 😋

The points are not perfect, but I like my mini quilt (a mug rug rather!). It's tempting to make a bigger one, with the pattern bigger too, so that the intersections will be more accurate. To be continued 😋

  5. I can't even imagine being able to keep that all straight! I would have sewn the wrong pieces many times I am sure. Wonderful interpretation.

  9. I am familiar with the term trefoil. We used a similar figure in Girl Scouts. I love that design. But it sure makes me feel old to hear that 1985 is considered old. Sigh. But in design, I can see it.

  10. I've seen this book and was quite tempted to make quilts that duplicate mosaics, but I didn't actually do it. Good for you for making it. This is so beautiful. I too am making a white and yellow quilt so it was especially nice to see that too. Love the way your quilt looks dimensional.
