Vintage Crosses Quilt | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Making Quilts over the years means storage is a premium.

What do you do with all your quilts?

Where do you store them?

Well, that is my quandary this week, as I sort through all my quilts trying to find places for them in my home. I have come across some favorites that deserve a special place. The quilt I am going to focus on in this post is my Vintage Crosses Quilt. You can find it on the website here this week I have decided to have a 10% discount sale on the pattern. In turn each week I will be doing this for each of my patterns and writing about each quilt.

Vintage Crosses is a very special quilt for me, it was a quilt that I designed to showcase my first block of the month quilt pattern. I loved every minute of working on this quilt. I knew from the start I would use the cross blocks, many fabrics, and applique. I loved seeing everyone's progress as they worked on the blocks each month, not only did this quilt teach me a lot about pattern writing, designing and the techniques I used, it also made me think that I could have a future designing quilt and sharing them.

Since then I have designed many quilts and each one is special, with memories of a time and place while making it sewn into each stitch. Lessons in a new technique or improvements to an old one.

So now I am gathering them all and deciding on storage for them, and where to showcase them in my home. I love the warm feeling they create in a home. In New Zealand we have such damaging sunlight, care has to be taken when placing them in the home, regularly exchanging the quilts so they don't get too much exposure. Up until now, I have had most of them tucked away, but that seems such a shame when they need to be seen and used.

I have a lovely quilt rack where I have placed my vintage crosses quilt, I think it looks happy there.

Now that the holidays are well and truly over, and we have started the year 2020. I am back in my sewing room while the house is peacefully quiet, my process for starting the new year is to finish some of the quilts that did not get finished at the end of 2019. One of the quilts to finish is the Treasures in the scrap bin quilt from the sew along, and as I am working on it I would be like to share my thoughts with you.

Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.
