Blog hop!

Finally it’s my turn to show the pattern I designed for Jennifer’s Blog hop party. I was so excited I started drafting it a couple of days after her announcement in January, and forced my closest friends to try it out so I could be certain of the outcome!

Finalmente è il mio turno di mostravi il modello che ho disegnato per il Blog hop di Jennifer. Ero così emozionata all’idea di partecipare che ho cominciato a disegnarlo un paio di giorno dopo il suo annuncio a metà gennaio e ho costretto le mie amiche a testare il modello in modo da essere certa del risultato finale!

When I think of a Garden party I see ladies wearing elegant hats, like during Ascot’s races, so I decided to design a pattern for a posh lady with a 20′s style hat. The ribbon is the perfect place to showcase a floral fabric or some special pattern you are saving in your stash.

Quando penso a un Garden party immagino signore con grandi cappelli come alle gare di cavalli di Ascott, e ho deciso di proporvi una raffinata signorina con il naso all’insù e un cappello elegante. Il nastro è il posto ideale per inserire una stoffa a fiori che avete salvato per un’occasione particolare.

You can download the pattern here, or on my craftsy store. I am also happy to show you the different versions my friends stitched: Fiammetta with a green hat by Viviana, Valentine with the red hat by Pina and Lily with a blue hat by Susanna.

Potete scaricare il modello cliccando qui, o visitando il mio negozio di Craftsy. Sono orgogliosa di presentarvi anche le altre signorine eleganti cucite dalle mia amiche: Fiammetta con il cappello verde realizzata da Viviana, Valentine col cappello rosso da Pina e Lily con il cappello blu scuro da Susanna.

To celebrate Jennifer’s birthday I’m hosting a giveaway: I will send my first two patterns available on my Craftsy store to two people leaving a comment under this post. The patterns are shoe themed so I will choose a random comment and one shoe-themed that makes me smile :) The giveaway will close on sunday the 22nd.

Per festeggiare il compleanno di Jennifer e la mia partecipazione al suo blog hop ho un giveaway per voi: manderò a due persone i miei primi modelli inseriti nel negozio di Craftsy, lo stivale e il tronchetto, a due persone tra quelle che lasceranno un commento sotto a questo post. Un commento sarà estratto a sorte, e uno sarà scelto da me tra quelli che vorranno dirmi qualcosa sulle scarpe. Estrazione domenica 22 aprile.

    Senza parole…hai superato te stessa. Fra i due pattern scarpe e stivali preferisco questi ultimi, non so come mai ma i tronchetti non mi sono mai piaciuti da indossare, colpa del mio 1,60 m?

  2. carol says:

    Tus modelos tan originales representan tu fantasia infinita y extraordinaria. Me hace feliz tener una maestra como tu, no lo hubiera nunca imaginado. Para mi es un privilegio y un honor averte conocido. Haces crecer las xsonas en muchos campos. Gracias x todo. Isa te manda un besote.

  7. Barbara says:

    This reminds me of Easter and all the ladies with their new bonnets. It will look great with all the only patterns. Thank you!!!

  8. Sue says:

    I LOVE your block! What a cool addition to our garden party! I collect old hats and have quite a few hanging in my studio. Thanks for the pattern and the giveaway. You have a neat design style!

  9. Lotte says:

    That is a very elegant lady – and it was nice to see the examples of how she could be made. Thank you!

  12. erika says:

    Anche a me vengono in mente “signorine perbene”, che sorseggiano vino bianco o limonata, quando penso ad un garden party….. un po’ in stile Titanic per intenderci….
    Quindi, non posso che dirti: splendide ! e splendida idea!

  13. Pina says:

    Io anche sono 1,60 ma questo tronchetto è bellissimo, io lo adoro!
    Hai disegnato delle scarpe meravigliose e dire che sei bravissima è riduttivo!!!
    Sono di una finezza sorprendente!
    👍🌷💋

  14. Peggy says:

    I was just talking to some friends about the gorgeous homes in the Maine area, those built by the wealthy to house their summer parties. This lady reminds me of that…Perhaps she was a Rockefeller. Cute idea for a garden themed quilt.

  15. Francesca Loveredhair says:

    Davvero meravigliose!! Ti ammiro tanto.. sai viaggiare con la fantasia e poi mettere il pratica il frutto di questi viaggi!!

    Incrocio le dita =)

  16. Federica says:

    ciao Gaya….mi unisco ai commenti …molto realistici i tronchetti ma anche io dal mio 1,56 di altezza non posso far altro che prediligere gli stivali… anche se devo dirti la verità io le scarpe l(magari decolltè tacco 12) le ADORO!!!!!…devi sapere che quando ne compro delle nuove e so che mio marito è nei paraggi di casa, lascio la scatola al negoziante, così elimino un po’ di prove….e poi non le indosso subito perché sai com’è …potrebbero dare nell’occhio…dopo un po’ di tempo le tiro fuori e zac!!! lui “scarpe nuove”, io”ma no, non ti ricordi che sono quelle dell’anno scorso.. tu già non ti ricordi mai niente”…hi hi hi…..finchè dura….
    Coimunque ti faccio i miei complimenti …i tuoi modelli sono BELLISSIMI…e io non avevo alcun dubbio, ancora una volta BRAVA!! non ti fermare perché io sarei persa e tu mi mancheresti davvero tanto….entro nel tuo sito tutti giorni per vedere se ci sono novità in vista….un abbraccio, a presto.

  17. Cindy says:

    Thank you for the wonderful block, love it. The hat is great!

  18. Susan N says:

    If you added the shoes, she would be decked out from the top of her head to bottom of her feet. Thanks for the pattern and the giveway.

  19. cherylmonica says:

    Love this! I adore anything Art Deco and to be able to do this with paper piecing is so exciting. Thanks for showing us the pattern in various colors. Love them and can’t wait to try it. Thanks! Cheryl from South Florida

  20. marjorie says:

    hats and shoes, can we get any better? what a cute pattern. My sister ‘collects’ real shoes so I could make a shoe or two for her.

  21. Nancy in IN says:

    She is all dressed up and ready to go out on the town.
    Thanks

  22. Michelle says:

    This is a lovely pattern. I too love the hat. The thing I love about shoe patterns is you never run out of your size and you can sew shoes that you could never wear like stillettos. Thanks for the great pattern.

  23. auntypsycho says:

    I LOVE that pattern . the hat makes her look . . . . . SHOES???? Did you say SHOES???????? *runs off to look*

  24. Karen in Tucson says:

    What an exquisite pattern!! It’s beautiful. Thank you so much for offering it.

  25. Candy Soehren says:

    I am collecting paper piecing patterns of shoes to do a quilt one day! I have had a lifelong fascination with fancy shoes because I could never wear them. Love your flapper gal!

  26. Elnora says:

    Thanks for this wonderful pattern! The lady is so elegant, perfect for a garden party.

    When I read what you said about shoe-themed comments, I laughed. I had a big surgery on my foot yesterday, so am lying flat in bed with my foot propped high on two pillows. “Keep your toes above your nose,” the surgeon said. What made me laugh is that my shoe is the ugliest post-surgical “boot” imaginable! Acres of black nylon and velcro. I wouldn’t be very suitable company for your elegant garden party lady today! Lol.

    Thanks again for the charming pattern! Once my sewing pedal foot is back on the floor and pain free, I’ll have to try it out.

  27. Raewyn says:

    This block is gorgeous – I love it!! Thank you so much for sharing it.

  28. Soma says:

    très chic!!

  29. Well, I have to tell you, I love your block. A fine lady she is indeed. My thoughts are if you can wear a hat and red lipstick together, you are a flamin’ hot babe and you brought that to us. Thanks. Now you mention free blocks that have to do with shoes. OMGosh you have hit me with a good one. I love hats, I love shoes, I love purses. Simply, I will say, Pick Me Please. Now you want a funny shoe story. A few years ago, I made my bucket list and shared it with a group of fiends online. 1. Attend the Opera one time at least where I get to dress up in evening clothes, long dress, sparkly jewelry, higher heels, all the good stuff. 2. Attend the Ballet. I don’t care if I don’t have to dress up for it, but it has to be at Christmas time. 3. Get a new pair of hunting boots (mine had started leaking)(yes, I hunt). 4. Go to Australia, anywhere but Sydney (I want to go to the real Australia, the outback if you will) 5. Visit the Alps 6. Go to Ireland. And the list went on. Well my “pals” all went to laughing out loud, rolling on the floor laughing their “A’s” off and it was hurting my feelings. So I just went offline and cried. Why were my good friends making fun of my bucket list? The next day, the first email I had was from my “so called pals”. It was me in a really ugly, very short prom type dress from the 60′s, high heel thigh high black shiny boots, sparkling jewels ………….carrying a deer rifle and wearing an orange blaze cap. Thanks pals!!!

    Se ho le scarpe dal vivo xke non averle anke in stoffa???
    Sarebbe lo massimo!!! Superlativo!!!

  31. Amy DeCesare says:

    I love the sophisticated lady block! Can’t wait to head over to Craftsy now and see more of your patterns…I’ve just discovered your lovely blog. About shoes…I was remembering the time my young son stuffed rolled-up newspapers in my husband’s shoes for an April Fool’s Day prank. It kind of worked, but my husband knew something was wrong, because we perched ourselves on the stairs to watch him putting them on. Still, it was funny!

  32. vern says:

    this is fantastic. please excuse my ignorance, but are we allowed to print the pattern and use to make this for personal use?

  33. Gaya says:

    Hi Vern, certainly go ahead and print it and stitch it as much as you like. Just please put a link back here if you post the finished picture somewhere, so others can find it (and I can see it and be proud!)
