Quilt Pattern Writing Day

July 22, 2015 4 Comments

Quilt Pattern Writing Day today at Pine Valley Quilts. Quilt pattern writing is my least favorite part and I must admit I would rather be sewing haha. Apart from the pattern writing my to do list today is also to find a bit of time to sew, if I don't have sewing time I get a little grumpy. (fancy that!) So here is my plan for the day. A little more stitching on my small quilt series. I have added borders of wool applique as I think it goes so well with the look of this quilt. Small Quilt Series / Pine Valley Quilts Small Quilt Series / Pine Valley Quilts I have only stitched the berries down, so I hope to finish this today. I also need to focus on quilting the borders of my Tavern Reds Quilt, I have put this aside for too long and need to pick up the pace to get it finished. The pattern is written already but the quilting on this quilt is nagging at me. Tavern Reds / Pine Valley Quilts Well I had better get on with it all or that pattern will never get done !! LOL Happy Stitching Sharon

 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.

I am not in a hurry to get to the finish line with this quilt, I love the whole process, every step and stitch. This week has had me finding the perfect fabric for the birds, I have used a window to get the perfect area of the fabric to make the birds look their best. Trying many different fabrics, I now have more birds than I need and some to set aside for another quilt. This is usually the case in many of my applique quilts, so I have a little pile of orphan pieces waiting for the perfect quilt to be stitched into.
