It has been a while since I have done a post, and I do apologize for my absence. The last two months have been very full on.
This lovely basket of Tulips block is a pleasure to make. I have chosen a selection of background fabrics to compliment the basket and tulip fabrics.As I was selecting the fabrics for my background. I gave my fabric draws a good tidy up and put my background fabrics in order. It is always amazing how different the neutral fabrics are in colour. I have placed them in order of tone. As you can see there is quite a difference in the tone. This is quite important when matching these neutral tones to the colours you are selecting for the rest of your quilt. The first pieces I put together were the tricking little tulips, I learn't the hard way to make sure you have your pieces arranged the correct way before you start to sew. Until next time Happy Stitching Sharon

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.
