Making Applique Flowers with turned edges | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Applique Flowers are fun to make ! You can see more of the process in the video below, solving the mystery of how the paper is removed.

Part Two of Making applique flowers with turned edges using freezer paper templates.

I hope you enjoy the video ! I will be posting more pictures of the progress on my Blueberry Patch Quilt as I am working on the applique borders in my next post also on Instagram and Facebook.

I will be writing the pattern for the Blueberry Patch quilt over the next couple of weeks and hope to have it available as a PDF download on the Pine Valley Quilts website. 

You can find more of my patterns here.

What ironing board cover do you use? Mine would scorch with the iron on it that long! I need to get the type you have!

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.

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.

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.
