I am settling into home life after being away for the last five weeks on an amazing trip with my two sons. We had such a great time together, I enjoyed every minute of it.
We had six wonderful nights in Paris. ( WOW ! what and amazing city ) I have come home full of inspiration. While there I was lucky enough to visit Le Rouvrey Quilt shop.Having the boys to show me how to use the GPS on my phone so I could find my way around was great.
It was not the easiest shop to find, here is a picture of the sign with Derek standing underneath. Inside the shop is small, tastefully decorated with old quilts and beautiful French fabrics and reproduction fabrics. I was lucky enough to fit some of the lovely French fabrics in my suitcase.
We all loved the food in Paris and I took full advantage of the fact that I did not have to cook or clean for five whole weeks. ( Bliss)
Time to start cleaning my sewing room and get inspired to start on a project.

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.
