A little time to review the last few weeks of maddness

November 03, 2011

Hello Everyone I have been madly working on getting everything organized for the Calico Xmas show. This will be the first time Pine Valley Quilts has been vendor at this show and I have been working day and night to get everything done and tick off my to do list. I am finally seeing some light and the end of the tunnel and have taken a small break to write this post, so you don't all think I have fallen off the planet. Here are some sneak preview pictures of some of the new things I have been working on, and will have available on our stand over the weekend. [caption id="attachment_632" align="alignleft" width="655"] Autumn Baskets[/caption]             We have a few kits available of this lovely table runner, we also have the patterns available. [caption id="attachment_634" align="alignleft" width="573"] Chocolate and Lila[/caption]           Chocolate and Lilac is my latest quilt, I have fallen in love with strip quilts and these gorgeous fabrics. This is not a difficult quilt to make and a very effective result. Also if you love to quilt as I do, there is plenty of scope for playing with quilting designs and just having lots of fun. This quilt is also available in a kit or a pattern. Hope to see you all at Calico Xmas, please do come and say hello. Venue: North Harbour function Centre. Nov 4th and 5th 10am - 5 pm Nov 6th 10 am - 4 pm.   Happy Stitching Sharon

Reflections on 2018 and the Winterwood Quilt

December 29, 2018

 These are just a few of the things that I got up to in 2018. There is more to come but I am not able to tell you just yet. I will keep you all posted when I am able to spill the beans. Lot's of secret sewing has been going on.

New patterns are coming along, so in the New Year there will be some surprises.

    The Full version of the Winterwood Pattern is now available as a full pattern containing everything you need to complete the whole quilt. The Winterwood quilt pattern can be found here containing 71 pages. This is one of my favorite quilts, I loved every minute of making this beautiful quilt. Sometimes everything seems to go along so smoothly when designing and making a quilt, this quilt was one of those times.

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.
