Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Dotty Maureen has kept herself busy over the holiday. Here are just two of her many projects. This is her paper-pieced Christmas Cactus all but the background colours are hand dyed fabrics, and you know from previous posts that when Dotty does hand dying it is for real... she's had blue, bright pink, red and green hands!
This is another Dotty project. The purples are a kind of suede feel fabric... lovely and soft. This pattern is from "Quilt in a Day" TV, it's called Orion's Star.
I need to re-name 'Normal Maureen' and call her 'Messy Maureen' he he he, she does like to have her stuff everywhere while she is working. Today we had to have the ladies use only one table each, so funny containing them! That's Dotty working opposite with those lovely bright yellows.
Gillian is now making her quilt with animal prints and beige. It wasn't her original plan, but once I saw her pile of lovely prints and a few metres of the beige from another bag.... he he he, I stepped in and she loved the idea! It's going to look very cool. grrrrrrrr...
here she's trimming up the 24 centre half square triangles using Dotty's brilliant ruler from Creative Grids.
This is Lizzie, back from her holidays in the USA. She went to a lovely quilt shop and to a Jo-Ann' fabric shop while she was there, lucky thing eh!... anyway, she's chosen to make her project in three shades of green, light, medium and dark, this project should be a calming one then eh! In this picture she is also trimming her 24 half square triangle centres.
Messy Maureen made 6 full blocks today, she was using the little Bernina 230 PE and has requested to use it again... at this week's Sunday class.... addicted???
How fabulous are these black & yellows? Dotty received them in a 'Sweet Treat' package that she signed up for. She never knows what will be in the package so it is a lovely surprise every time... Dotty might have to wear sunglasses to use this quilt! he he
