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 border for my Feathered Star Quilt are pieced blocks, using neutral fabrics with applique on top. Because the feathered star blocks use many fabrics, placing a single printed light background fabric under the applique would just stand out too much. Take a look at my process for mixing up the fabrics in the applique borders.
