The latest pattern added to the Pine Valley Quilts website is the Butterfly Runner. I so enjoyed making this easy pieced runner with fabrics designed by Blackbird designs ('Wild Flower') by Moda.
This gorgeous range of fabrics gave me the inspiration to make butterfly blocks. arranging them with sashing's to create a beautiful table runner for Spring.
The Butterfly Runner is part of the Small Wonders Quilt club. Read about how to join the Small Wonders Quilt Club here

Spring has arrived! In the garden the daffodils are flowering and there are lambs in the paddock. Such a beautiful time of the year, with the feel of warmer days to come.
Butterflies are always beautiful in the garden and we are fortunate to have an abundance of Monarchs in the warmer months. Although the Swan plants can be a menace prolifically growing and self seeding I always keep an area of them for the butterflies to eat.

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.
