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.

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.
