Review from Western Quilters show

March 23, 2011 10 Comments

Hello Everyone We had this lovely photo taken of Jackie and I at the show. We are still on a high after the Western Quilters show. We had such a great time, the Western Quilters girls really looked after us, bringing us lovely cups of tea and goodies to eat I am sure I have gained a few kilos. Not to worry it was for a good cause. I would like to thank everyone for their wonderful support and feedback. It was great to meet our customers, it is always good to be able to put a face to the names, I am looking forward to seeing you all again, maybe some of you will catch up with us on our Sew Inn days in Helensville. We will be posting a newsletter out shortly with all the details. Here are some pics of our stall. I know I am going on a bit but I do also have to mention all the fabulous quilts from the Western Quilters group, they are a very talented group of quilters. Thank you all again Happy Stitching Sharon www.pinevalley.co.nz

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.
