Autumn Bouquet | Sharon Keightley Quilts

This is so exciting ! Every since I started designing quilts I have had the dream of writing a book to share my designs. It has now become a reality, dreams do come true afterall. Being an avid collector of quilting books, always curious about the authors and their methods. I now finally will have a book on my book shelf that is written by me.

Autumn Bouquet | Sharon Keigthley Quilts

The book 'Autumn Bouquet' has twelve quilt patterns, and gives you two methods of invisible machine applique where I have been able to share my tips and tricks for the applique methods I use.

You can pre-order the book here: Martingale  Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Or for a signed copy order direct from my website here

Autumn Bouquet | Sharon Keigthley Quilts

This is what Martingale are saying about my book.

'This collection of dreamy quilts bursts with fabrics from the scrap basket! Classic patchwork provides a backdrop for pretty flowers and twining vines, all made easy with machine-applique. Learn two ways to prepare appliques, plus tips and tricks for setting up your machine for applique. 

Dozens of close-up photos and tips reveal secrets for mingling antique-style fabrics ranging from blushing pinks and soft purples to rich golds, reds, and browns. From small wall quilts to lap-sized designs, this bouquet of quilts is simple to sew--yet so extraordinary, the quilts you make will be handed down from generation to generation.'

I can now give you a preview of whats inside, and the lovely quilts I hope you enjoy making. I am so looking forward to seeing all that you do with the patterns in my book.

While working on a new quilt for my soon to be born granddaughter I decided to do a tutorial. On some quilts, especially those with pieced backgrounds, I like to remove the freezer paper as I invisibly machine stitch down the applique piece. Instead of cutting away the background afterward. This little tutorial may help you.......
