Block Four BOM 2018 | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Well the month of May came and went so quickly, I hardly had time to breathe lol

It was a busy month of family, writing new patterns, teaching the Rambling Ways Quilt and sewing. Now the beginning of June and the winter has really started with awful rain, thunder and lightening and power cuts. Which is why you have not seen many posts from me on the internet and block four has been late in coming. 

I have made a lot of progress on my blocks for the BOM 2018 quilt. Making all four corner applique blocks. I now have all the blocks done, ready to sew the quilt top together. I see some of you have progressed with getting your blocks together, and the quilts are looking fabulous. Its so nice to see all the progress made so far, loving all the different fabrics used, they all look great.

Very sad….here it is the end of July and still no link to be able to download block 4. Not sure what to do with the three blocks I already made….waste of fabric if the pattern isn’t going to be finished. I know it’s a free pattern and I do appreciate that, but having bought fabric and done 3 blocks, well, such a shame. :(

Hi, mir fehlt der BOM Block4. Ich konnte ihn nicht herunterladen. ich bekam auch keine Nachricht.
Bin ich nicht mehr gespeichert in Ihrem Download-Speicher. Das wäre sehr schade, mir gefällt nämlich
der Quilt. Bitte geben Sie Bescheid.
Liebe Grüße G.Konrad

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.
