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.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
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.
