Having fun with quilting designs

May 29, 2013 2 Comments

Hello Everyone

I have had such a busy time lately, but today I have had some time just to sit and enjoy a bit of quilting fun.

Here are some photos of my play time.

I love that I don't have to mark the design first. I love free motion designs that I can make up as I go along. Here I have played with the combination of feathers and circles.

As I have used feathers in the centre of the quilt I like this design to fill the triangles that are a variation on the feather design. These have also been done without the dreaded marking.

For the life of me I am not sure why these photo's are not centering like they should do, but please forgive that they are not doing as they should.

Hope you enjoyed my quick post. I love to share with you and enjoy your comments.

Happy Stitching

Sharon

 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. 

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.
