A facebook group for Pine Valley Quilts ? [gallery ids="4054,3634,3078"] I've been doing some research, so I can provide you all with a platform to share your pictures and get to know each other while working on the 'Pine Valley Quilts' BOM Quilts, or Pine Valley Quilts patterns in general. I would love love love to see what you have created......... Here's what I have come up with so far.......... Would you like a facebook group? or would you rather a link up here on the Pine Valley Quilts blog ?  Lastly would you be interested ? This is all very new for me, so please bare with me, I would love your feedback. I can't possibly post without a few pictures of what I have been up to this week. Half Square Triangle Fun/Pine Valley Quilts Some half square triangle fun, after so much applique I needed a piecing fix. Now I am fixated on this little neutral quilt I have going on.......... Happy Stitching Sharon

I’d be interested in a Facebook group. I’m in another quilt group that has just moved to Facebook and while there’s a learning curve, it’s really not bad. Many folks object to Facebook on privacy issues (I do myself), but I’ve had an account for many years with no problems. I rarely post anything, but it’s a great way to keep up with the grandchildren or talk privately to several of my family at once. I understand it’s much easier on the person running the group.

For my I like both options. There are many groups on facebook and it is a lot of fun. But I also know that there are people who don’t want to sign up to facebook, so they would all miss the fun when you post only on facebook.

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.

There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles. 

Here's how it works.

I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.

 The Roses quilt is coming along nicely, I have been squeezing in time over the weekend to stitch the applique Roses onto the third border and I can see the quilt starting to take shape. Today I hope to have the third border stitched in place and start prepping the fourth border of Roses. This will complete the center of the quilt. From there I have a vague idea of what will come next, I am hoping it will come clearer to me as I progress.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.
