Hi Sharon,

I can tell you’ve reused the circles . How do you get the freezer paper out without tearing it?

Thanks,
Eileen

A friend sent me a link to this post to help me overcome my fear of appliqueing circles. Your video instruction is excellent. Thank you for sharing!

What brand iron are you using, Sharon? It seems to be very good & hot clear to the tip as you are working.

Oh my gosh! A picture really is worth a 1000 words! I see exactly what you are doing that I am not, and I am going to try this! Your circles don’t have any little pointies on them, and that’s what I want. Thank you SO much for doing this video!

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.

 The Roses quilt is coming along nicely, I have been squeezing in time over the weekend to stitch the applique Roses onto the third border and I can see the quilt starting to take shape. 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.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. 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.
