Upcoming:- Uttoxeter Quilt Show

Once again, I got my very own self lumbered with the job of organising the 'Quilt Angels' for the Uttoxeter Quilt Show... 
I said, "IF no-one else will do it"... obviously no-one wanted the job.
Friday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April.
If you would like to volunteer to don white gloves and a colourful sash and to protect the quilts from the touchy feely show visitors, please contact me and I will put you on the list. 

angiequilts@gmail.com or pop into my little, rather fabulous quilt shop, and all of it's other temptations.... he he he
The organisers are not giving any goodies for your duty this year, just a complementary entrance ticket and, hopefully, a thank you.

Toot toot toot.... a beautiful, fabulous and finished gifting quilt. Farmer Lynda put such a lot of thought into making this lovely quilted wall hanging, every detail is personal to the couple she'd going to be gifting it to. There's a big day coming up!

Chris came to the Cathedral Windows workshop recently.... such lovely colours! Although it isn't quite finished yet, she popped in to purchase backing fabric for the back as she's decided to make in into a cushion with a zip!

Toot toot toot for this one though.... a fabulous finish! Chris also came to the Pineapple Blossom workshop... beautiful Batik fabrics making up the 24" cushion....

and all the left over strips and bonus Half Square Triangles were used to make this absolutely fabulous cushion back... also with a hidden zip as per the instructions on the tab at the top of this blog.

Brand New Beautiful Batiks... All from Moda!
There have been lots of boxes delivered lately...
Do you know what that means? More customers declaring....
There's too much to choose from!!! Silly customers! ha ha ha

How can you have too much fabric to choose from? tut tut.

Rose was super excited to have made her sandwich because now she gets to quilt this beautiful project. She has a few ideas... and you know Rose great ideas!!

Lorna also came for Sandwich Saturday... she pinned a bit and shopped a bit then pinned some more then shopped some more... I'm not going to apologize for having so much wonderful, and evidently irresistible, fabric!!

Jenny is quite a recent fabric collector and finds herself already an addict to quilting... I see no problem there! She used some very strange stuff for her sandwich, I think it was some sort of upholstery wadding, already backed? Each to his/her own.

Tadaaaa and toot toot toot for this fabulous and finished... Made by New Sue, brand new, almost antique quilt... it's been stored and forgotten about... waiting for the perfect amount of time to pass before it's turn to be quilted... and that time has now arrived!!!

Gail finished her very posh cushion/pillow. Doesn't it look great!!
Toot toot toot Gail, It's a fabulous and finished project and it's given me an idea!!

Krafty Karen has started a new project... Beautiful Batik fabrics look sooooo good in applique, Karen's been inspired by Princess Jackie's work for a long time, now she gets to play too.

Gail is using surplus strips to make a top secret project...
PM Pam started it all off with a yellow one... so blame her!
There's going to be a Cushion Bombing fiasco soon!!!
