Vintage Nine Patch Quilt Pattern | Sharon Keightley Quitls

It's been a great mail day today! I have received my copy of the Today's Quilter Magazine (issue 38) with my Vintage Nine Patch quilt pattern inside. What a treat it is to see all the lovely pictures they have taken of my quilt. I love the way they display the quilts, the Today's Quilter Magazine is so full of beautiful quilts and patterns, great information and tutorials. They are also giving away with each magazine a free booklet about the 1718 Silk Patchwork Coverlet that will be displayed at the Birmingham show this year.

Read more about the Vintage Nine Patch quilt here and here. The Vintage Nine Patch quilt was so much fun to make, everything went together easily. I love how this quilt turned out, a pleasure from start to finish.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.

I am not in a hurry to get to the finish line with this quilt, I love the whole process, every step and stitch. This week has had me finding the perfect fabric for the birds, I have used a window to get the perfect area of the fabric to make the birds look their best. Trying many different fabrics, I now have more birds than I need and some to set aside for another quilt. This is usually the case in many of my applique quilts, so I have a little pile of orphan pieces waiting for the perfect quilt to be stitched into.

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.
