New Quilt Patterns | Sharon Keightley Quilts

July has been a month of pattern writing for me..... trying hard to catch up and clean the slate. I have eight new patterns written ! Some of them are still being tested by the wonderful ladies who answered to my blog post calling for testers. I have loved the feed back about the draft copies they have tested for me and I am sure it has made me better pattern writer.

Now just waiting for the weather to give me a nice day to take the cover shots..... we have had such terrible wet weather but it is winter after all. On the nice days it seems there are always other things that take preference. (like my poor husband being struck down with the flu) However I do have a few sneeky shots that I can show you.

The Butterfly Table Runner. This is one of my favorites, made with 'Wild Orchid' range by Blackbird Designs.

Pine Tree Quilt, the fabrics are a mix of older fabrics I had been saving and I love how they came to life in this quilt. Living among Pine Trees this quilt reminds me of how they look after the rain when the sun is filtering through the branches.

Simply Baskets Quilt made with the same Sara Morgan range as Milly's Garden Quilt.

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.
