|Another Dinosaur block is stuck down... how cute is he! Sister Susie has decided to cut out and stick all the different block designs so that she can right down to the stitching on all of them, at the very same time... smart!|

|A musical themed fabric (Art Gallery Luxury to touch!) for the backing and those left over squares tie the whole project together perfectly, the lucky guy is a music lover you see. So, for this Fabulous and finished project we shall toot, toot toot.|
|So, just before the ladies all packed up for going home time, Susan held up her second totally toot-a-bubble, fabulous and finished large lap quilt (Large size lap quilt not large lap!! ha ha ha). A blue and white Angie's Six Pack with...|

|All Day Di's first, fabulous and finished, festive bunting pillow/cushion Stitched with silver metallic thread, even the applique around the Merry Christmas, making it super glittery... if you can't glitter-up at this time of year, when can you?|
|Toot toot toot Diane, Finished and fabulous! A carefully covered zip in the backing makes for a perfect addition to any sofa during sewing prevention season.. no 'Toddler Tummy' cushion backs for us!|
|Our Carol sandwiched and quilted her festive wall hanging...|
She did a great and simple quilting design, this lovely fabric doesn't need fancy-schmancy patterns it's just lovely as it is.
|Brenda Duck prefered 'Happy' to 'Merry' and that's just fine, and dandy... you know I always encourage PMS (Pleasing My Self). No 'Toddler Tummy' Backing here..., a zip was inserted and by the end of the day there was binding too.|
Just know that the ladies are very busy... sometimes my little classroom looks and sounds like a little sewing factory!! I did warn everyone last year that I had heard there would be another Sewing Prevention Season.... it must be a tradition in the crafting world... take your time all year, it's ages away yet... then, panic at the last minute!

|Rose, very proudly it has to be said, held up her fabulous and finished Foundation Paper Pieced spirally cushion. This project has had Rose reach happy-highs and 'low-fed-ups' but it is now, totally toot toot toot-a-bubble ...|
|Some of the blocks made by Rose to unintentionally practice her Foundation Paper Piecing technics... nothing need be wasted you see... what a fabulous backing for her cushion... teeny tiny little Log Cabin blocks... just fabulous.|
|Rose purchased these fabulous fellows as a pattern and kit from our pilgrimage to the Festival Of Quilts in August... and now we are all thinking... 'how did we miss them?' Aren't they Christmassy... and Fabulous and finished and want-a-bubble!|
|I said it was a Rose-y post!! With all of those fabulous finishes, it's time to start something new. The pattern was also purchased at Festival Of Quilts and Rose has been itching to make it for all those months... Fabric chosen....|
|Heat and Bond traced upon then stuck onto the backs of the fabrics and wavy lines, carefully measured following the pattern, cut out and stuck in place... By the time Rose went home the background had been completed and it looks great!|
|So a few weeks ago we gave a fabulous and finished fanfare for Rose's Hare quilt... it created a lot of interest. People were inspired! Queen Jacquie was so inspired that she got the pattern and fabrics sorted to make one for her very own self.|
|Fran Cupcake's Santa Window... inspiring us all with it's fabulous embellishments... especially the beautiful beard... Gail want's to make her Santa window all 3D and twinkle-y-bearded too. She had a little bearding practice and the excitement grew!|
|New Sue has been working on this fabulous festive wall hanging... beautifully stitched and embellished... Quilted too and with binding in place, there's just a little hand stitching needed... I bed we will be tooting this beauty next week.|
