Winterwood Quilt Progress on Borders

Winterwood Quilt Progress on Borders

This week my focus has been to progress and hopefully finish the borders for the Winterwood Quilt. The Winterwood Quilt was put aside so I could finish off some of my works in progress, and a bit of piecing fun. I find it is always good to have a balance between applique and piecing. After all variety is the spice of life !

Take a look at my progress so far......

Cutting out and turning the edges of all the applique pieces for the border.

Stitching them all to the background fabric invisibly by machine.

You may notice I use flower head pins to secure the applique pieces. I like to use pins, this helps when an applique piece needs to be readjusted before stitching in place.

I now have all my blocks sewn together, with the borders pinned in place on the design wall to take a look at how it's coming along. The top border still need applique pieces added but you get the general idea. My sewing room is small and my design wall is not quite big enough for a quilt this size. Not complaining......

I am looking forward to finishing the Winterwood quilt top.

This is the latest block six you can find it here.

Happy Stitching

It looks so lovely! I’m hand stitching Rambling Ways, very slowly on first pieces for first block. I got frustrated with the freezer paper and am going back to needle turn. I think I get smoother edges. We’ll see. I may yet find some combination of ingredients that makes mine look as nice as yours.

This quilt is coming together wonderfully. It’s really interesting and useful to see the methods you use – I’ll be trying machine applique when I have a bit more time at the machine, but for now I’m a slow hand sewer as I find it so relaxing. I love this quilt – I am aiming to make it when I’ve finished the rambling ways quilt , and I’m already pondering what colours to use….
Thank you for sharing your making journey

I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.

This month (January) the Small Wonders Club quilt pattern is called 'Rose of Thorns'. I am in love with this little quilt it has all my favourite colours in it and of course a little applique too. I think I'm also addicted to Flying Geese blocks, they are so cute in the border. Rose Of Thorns measures 22 inches square.
