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

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 😊

Thread choices for invisible machine applique
Thread choices for invisible machine applique

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need. Read more about my thread choices.
