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.

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.
