Colcha Tecnica Caleidoscopio. Clase de Patchwork y Quilting. Colcha para Bebé fmq


Hi everyone. I’m Luis, from the mininos of
Sanchez This week I want to show you one very particular technique called “the technique
of kaleidoscope “and this is how we have done these Pictures for this baby bedspread. Too
I’m going to give you a little explanation of how we assemble this quilt and they will see
also a little detail of what it was the quilting process that we use by hand
raised. This quilt, by the way, is for the baby
from a couple of friends (Manrique and María Laura), I really hope Lucy is quite
Good (this is for that baby). So with All the love in the world, this little bed is
for her and I took the opportunity to Share the elaboration process with you.

So, well, here we continue doing these videos for you, with all the love of
world and I already explain how to make this beautiful bedspread, for the little one, Lucy and the technique
of kaleidoscope with squares. For this kaleidoscope quilt we are going to
use nine different colors because each one of them equals a 3×3 frame that
They will accompany our quilt. I’m using 12 inch x 12 inch squares, which
in centimeters they are more or less 30.5 centimeters. The first thing I’m going to do is take these
pictures and I’m going to align one on top of the other, they are perfectly fine. Previous
to this, I hope you have ironed them so that They all fit perfectly. Once
I have them aligned this way, which I will do will take a rule and, if this
It measures 12 inches, I will divide it by 4 (or just look for this to have three
portions). Here it could be 3×4=12 (each 4 inches), or I can use 3 and a half as a measure.
In this case I will use 3 and a half, which I It seems more appropriate. Then, I will dial
from the edge in 3 and a half inches, which in centimeters are about nine
centimeters. One, two, three and a half inches Again, this way. Also below
up and top down. So, in this way. What am I going to do? I’ll take
my knife and I will make a diagonal between the top left mark and the mark
from bottom right. They see him? As if a diagonal between those two marks I made.
I’m going to cut my nine layers of cloth (because I can do it, since the blade is quite
thick and you have to apply force). If you are you feel comfortable cutting less, because
do it with the layers of fabric that are accustomed to cutting. It is usually
they recommend 4, but with this blade I don’t I’m afraid to cut nine layers of cloth.
Then, I go back diagonally from above on the right, with the mark on the bottom left,
short. Something very important is that they try to Do not move your fabrics. Now left
Up with right down. See that simply I am cutting on the marks I had made.
This way. If nothing has moved, perfect. If something moves, then simply
I re-accommodate him very carefully. Now mark top right with bottom mark
on the left, like this. Perfect. This is the last cut. In this way we will get, see it here,
as if it were an eight piece pizza. Now, for this to remain random, what I’m going
To do will be to take and mix these bits. What I can do? I’m going to take this one
to leave as it is, of this I will grab the first two fabrics (one, two) and I pass them
down (as you see it). Here i go to take, it may be, the first three or perfectly
four (and this depends on you, how want to do the count) and step them down.
Now, here I take the first six. See The important thing here is that all the pieces
I was different: see that they are all different colors. This is what is going to
generate randomness So what I’m going to do is cook
Each of these layers. So i’m going to place my main stack here and I’m going to bring me the
first layer of fabric of each of these (as you can see here), so you can see how
the block is assembled. So, see that it’s easy, they’re just already mixed
and nothing else we will be taking one by one. See that they will not be repeated because of that
Change we made with the different pieces. So, see that this is the block that
I have left here and here I have a block completely different for the mix. I go
to go to sewing machine and I will always take a piece of these little ones and I put it on
one of these big ones, like this, ensuring that the center is aligned (here,
they see him?). Small big envelope. Small big envelope Small big envelope, ok?
And, now, I will go to the sewing machine and I will always sew starting at the tip
on the right side of each of these, With a quarter of an inch. In this case, something I recommend is to have
Your two workspaces. Here I have my squares and bits already cut, and what
what I will be doing will be slowly bringing them one by one to the sewing machine. I’m going
to sew like this this way, and I will return them right where I took them. This for
that I don’t lose order and be able to move from back and forth, creating this piece one by one
Once, without messing up all the pieces. Here I already did the sewing, always on the side
right of my triangle, and now what remains is, carefully, and with the nail they will open
this seam, in this way, in all pieces. There is. Now what we are going to do
is to join these two pieces, join these two, and then we simply join both halves.
So, we simply place this one on top of the other See that here, like the
seam allowances always go to the tiny side, when placed on top of each other
(this tip with this one) the seams They intertwine in this way. Here you can
see one base on one side and another for the other, facilitating the alignment. Once again,
I’m going to cook from the center down. Here I always used the same approach:
cooking the right side of my triangle, starting at the tip. Once they open it
here is half, and this means that seam allowances always turn
in the same direction. Same on this side: I placed them facing each other and cooked the
right margin starting at the tip, we open and here the margins are here. What am I going to do now? Just what
it remains is to place this on this, and here again see that here the margins go
to the left and here the margins go to the right. This means that here
in the center they will fit perfectly also the margins and I will be able to pass
My seam straight from side to side. When we join these two pieces through the center,
face to face, the important thing here for that this piece is left with the perfect tips
(How is it that I am going to show you here, that in the center the tips are perfectly),
The secret to doing this is that sewing pass exactly over this point here where
the pieces are joined. If the seam passes more Outside, here is going to be a space. What
I’m going to do? I’m going to take these two pieces (facing each other, as I explained.
Here it hooks (see how well it hooks, because one goes in one direction and the other
goes in another, then these two get hooked pieces). And here I will sew in two parts,
this so that the piece is very beautiful. I hope you can tell that the seam here
(here the diagonal seam) intersects with this straight stitching at this point here. East
crossing coincides with this point, which is where all the tips of the triangles are joined.
So what I want is to sew pass over this point where they intersect
the seams How am I going to achieve this? First that nothing I hold here, I align my fabrics and
I’m going to accommodate her so that at the beginning to sew at once I start in the center by
on top of where those seams intersect, and once I’m there I just start
to align the rest of the piece and I continue sewing See here, where I open it, that
tips were perfect because I spent just where was the intersection of those two
seams Now I’m going to turn the piece. I sewed this down, now I sew it for
the other side (same, from the center down), and I will try to pass again on that
center and from there I come down, sewing following the line. Look how pretty to the
time to open, there is that center at perfection, with all the points that converge
In the same place. Now, see here all the margins
Sewing go down and to the left. Here they go up and to the right,
Like spinning So, this seam that I just finished to do, if I force her to turn too
in that same direction (like this, and this would be up), what I’m leaving
to find here in the center is that they are going to be united. If I separate these two pieces
from here, which is the seam that I just made |, I follow her and I follow her, see her? it opens here
(This seam that I just made opens here). What I have to do is that here,
where it intersects with this roll, I’m going to drop those stitches a little bit just
so that I can open that seam. The come? I could already open these two, the margins
sewing, I opened them here. Now I follow the another seam allowance here, on this side,
down, and here you see that it joins. So, I’m going to separate this seam here, nothing more
a bit, to be able to open it like this. A Once I did that, I will be able, with all the
tranquility of the world, turn these seams in this way. Naturally, where do I do this,
a little star is going to form there, see it, That little star we have there?
This little star is where all these spin seams This will allow me to this center
It is perfectly flat, with all these seams turning in the same direction. So now what I have left is to press
well this, iron it so that everything is Very well, and we cut it. Once we open this block like this, like this
It’s how it looks. As I showed you, the secret to make these tips perfect
is, at the time that we are doing the seams, pass over the intersection that
I showed them. Here on the back you see that I was left Like a little star, this is because I nested
My seams Remember that I have a tutorial how to nest the seams that I leave
up here, in the information, so that You can understand what I did here back. This
is simply open a couple of dots and make these seams back in the
center, turn so that they remain like a species of fan. They will see it in detail in this
tutorial that I leave there, for this stay flat and see that all seams
They are turning in the same direction. Now what we have to do is finish
All our blocks this way. In my case, I’m going to make a small quilt that
it will be nine blocks, you make the they want. This is the way to do this.
block called “kaleidoscope block”. What remains will be a square rule (what
it is easier to do it with a rule of these, these rules are of different sizes, the
square rules). It’s very simple here, because what we are going to do is match
the size of 5 inches (which would be half of our block, here in the center) and we
we ensure that the diagonal points both to the tip over here like I pass over the tip
from this side. If I have both diagonals online and 5 in the center, means that
I can cut without any fear. So, Here I simply check the measurements and short.
This is what I have left, see that it is very little. Once I have the first cut, I turn
and now here I just line up with 10 inches and 10 inches down here. I see that the diagonal
go through the center, that the measure of five inches fit in the center and that this points
towards the corner, so we make another cut and up here too. It’s that easy
as we have then this block completely rectified and to the final size of 10×10
inches, which are about 25 centimeters by 25 centimeters. We start with a block
of 30 x 30 and we finish with one of 25 x 25. I will finish the rest of the remaining blocks
to show them how this little bed would look once I assemble it. Now what I’m doing is cutting strips,
which are going to be a total of six, of more or minus 5 centimeters wide by size
of my squares (which in this case were 10 inches, and in inches the width would be
2.5 inches). We will place them in this way and we will also take them to the
sewing machine to sew row by row. So here, once we do too
that way, we are going to measure a long strip that will help us to place it in the middle.
Another option is not to place these strips, and see the effect it gives us, as if it were a
kaleidoscope. Here then I decided to do it with strips,
we are going to cook them this way, in the same set of three we saw. So a picture
– a strip, a frame – a strip and a frame so that each of the rows can be formed
what do we need. So that the alignment of the pieces we
look good (that is, when pasting this piece, that I stay in line) I’m going to show you
a trick that is using a pen friction (which, as you know, disappears
with the heat). What we are going to do will be come here and extend the lines that come
on the sides (like this), to be able to make mach or be able to fit with these lines
guide, in this part below, the piece that follow. So, here I will also help myself
with the edges, marking them so that Have something to guide me with. As well as what
come. Now what I’m going to do is take this
piece, and I’m going to make the seams match, (here, as you see) with the brands I have
here. There you can see that the alignment is perfect, and there I will put a pin to
that allows me to take the machine and sew from side to side. Now here I have what the center would be
of my quilt, this way. What I have left would be to add a couple of edges, which is
this case occurs to me that it may be an edge smooth, also pink, about 3 inches,
all around. What I did here was cut a strip of about 12.5 centimeters
(4 and a half inches), and cut exactly along the center of my quilt. This what
I simply measured with a tape measure and they were 32 inches (if they do in centimeters,
cut the measurement in centimeters they used). Here I stuck it with pins, so that it fits
perfect, and I’m going to sew here with a quarter inch (repeat, at the bottom). Once I hit the first edges, I do
the same measuring the size of what I It was now complete, and I sew the other two
side edges. After this, what comes is the quilt preparation, which I leave
a video above in the information, where we put our reverse, the wadding and we go
to start quilting. They can use pin treadmill, can use free motion quilting
(like here, I’m doing the edges with this flower design). This is to
raised hand. There is also a playlist on the description and in the information above,
Where you can see about this technique. Too, in the center, I am doing what is called
“lucky bones”, and this design remains. If you see, the X that I did here in the center
that allows me is to make smaller and smaller the spindles to avoid crossing with those
they come from top to bottom, and I can continue forward with the design. It remains of this
way you see here. What I did for the paintings was a design
concentric, as if it were a spiral, but drunk (moving from side to side), and this
It is a very simple way of quilting this. Then finish putting the edge, which
I also leave the video up here. This is what the quilt looks like when finished,
with its edges, padding and finishes late. I hope you liked it, really, how
