Pine Valley Quilts - Quilty Ramblings

Winterwood Quilt Finished

Winterwood Quilt Finished

The Winterwood quilt is now quilted and the binding sewn down. I am absolutely thrilled with this quilt.I love the texture of the random quilting using beautiful 50 weight Aurifil Thread. I love how the scrappy background fabrics add to the quilt. I loved every minute of working on this quilt, it's funny I am now missing spending time working on it. I will let the quilt speak for itself with all the lovely photos I took this morning. I apologize that there are no full sized pictures yet, the weather is dreadful, wet and cold. So as soon as we get some more sunshine I will take the quilt outside to get a lovely full sized photo.

This first photo is of the latest block added to the pattern BOM on the Pine Valley website, see more details here

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......
