Time for a giveaway ! Scrappy Baskets Quilt Pattern
Scrappy baskets Quilt was such a fun quilt to make, using my scrap bin to make the basket blocks. I love getting into the rhythm of sewing when making a pieced quilt, with my favorite music playing, or a great audio book to listen to while stitching. I find each quilt has a story of where and what I was doing at that point in time, it's like keeping a dairy of my daily life in my quilts. While making Scrappy Baskets Quilt I was trying out a new technique for making half square triangles, learning to be more random with my fabric choices and enjoying the process.

This morning I find myself with too many quilts in progress at one time! They are all at a stage that they can be worked on and I love them all !
The first one is the BOM 2018 which I have almost finished the quilting, I only have the very last border to finish. If you missed this last year, you can find the full pattern for this quilt here.
These are just a few of the things that I got up to in 2018. There is more to come but I am not able to tell you just yet. I will keep you all posted when I am able to spill the beans. Lot's of secret sewing has been going on.
New patterns are coming along, so in the New Year there will be some surprises.
The Full version of the Winterwood Pattern is now available as a full pattern containing everything you need to complete the whole quilt. The Winterwood quilt pattern can be found here containing 71 pages. This is one of my favorite quilts, I loved every minute of making this beautiful quilt. Sometimes everything seems to go along so smoothly when designing and making a quilt, this quilt was one of those times.
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.
