Vintage Crosses Quilt | Sharon Keightley Quilts

I am so excited to share my Vintage Crosses quilt with you all, starting on the 1st of April 2020 I will be writing a series of blog posts sharing tips for piecing and applique while I hope you all join me in a sew-along to make this beautiful quilt.

Please share this post with your quilting friends, the more the merrier as they say.

Keep up with all the posts via the Sharon Keightley Facebook page and group page. Instagram #vintagecrossesquilt and the Newsletter will give updates of all blog posts.

There is a lot of information to cover, I will be re-making the entire quilt. I will be doing tutorial based blog posts for each part of the quilt top.

You will need to purchase a copy of the Vintage Crosses pattern, there are already many of you with this pattern, but if you do not here are a couple of places you can find it. 

Le Patchwork d'Emma in France has printed patterns and on my website, you can purchase downloadable PDF patterns

Week One will be all about choosing the fabrics. 

Week Two will be about methods to piece the cross blocks.

Week Three will be about the twelve applique blocks, applique techniques and notions used to create beautiful applique. I will demonstrate how to create the many applique shapes used in the quilt, how to layer and build your applique. How to make the vines and stems.

Week Four will be about creating the applique center.

Week five will be about layout and sewing all the blocks together to finish the quilt top. 

Week six will cover quilting suggestions and an overview of the quilt.

Although the sew-along is over a six week period, there is no pressure to complete the quilt in this time frame. The blog posts will always be available, and I am happy for you to leave comments, asking questions, etc at any time.

Keep well and Happy Stitching

Sharon
