Time Out !

Time Out !

I have had some time out from the blog......and all other social media. Taking a break from cyber space while I work hard on some secret squirrel projects. I can't wait to show you all the things I have been up to, but unfortunately you will have to wait a while.

However I am getting excited about getting back to some of the projects I have had to put on hold. I will be making some class samples which will be fun, I have several classes booked for later this year. I am looking forward to getting out and about, and sharing with you all. 

My Roses quilt is one of the projects I am itching to get back to, I will share more progress pics as I go with you all.

Along with all of this I have had fun with the BOM 2018 and love seeing all the progress pictures over in the Sharon Keightley Quilts Face-book Group you can also find all the blocks and information in the group files. They will be available for free until the end of August after that the pattern will be available on the website. Any ideas for a name for this quilt would be appreciated.

I have more ideas for fun projects (sew alongs, BOM's) planned in the future.

 Happy Stitching

Sharon

I loved making the berry quilt Sharon – thank you so much. A good name would be “Winter Berries”. Can’t wait for the next project !!!

Looking forward to seeing your new projects. I really enjoyed working on your BOM 2018. If your teaching schedule includes California USA, would like to take a class. I like your style 😊

Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.

First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.

Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
