Forsbrook Quilt Group

Joan The Shop's Peppa Pig Quilt, for Alicia, is now a sandwich.... It will be quilted around the stars using her walking foot and, once Joan has had a little more practice with her free motion, curly whirly quilting will be added to the star centres.... well, that's the plan!
Helen joined us for the first time, she bought this pattern and fabric from the recent Uttoxeter quilt show, so she needed to learn "how to".... this fat cat is stuck down with Heat & Bond for now but he will be stitched using the Bernina blanket stitch next time... isn't he cute!
Brenda Barbara couldn't join us as she had to work.... she 'popped' in to spend her lunch-break with us (which was lovely) She delivered a magazine for Joan.... here we go again... there is a rather large brown and red quilt in the magazine which has now moved to the top of Joan's rather long 'to do' list.... she was already planning how much fabric to purchase... the quilt on the table there is one half of a double size quilt, the blocks are made for the other half... Joan is working on the border 4" Churndash blocks.
Shirley Lerly is making the Chunky Churndash quilt. She has now perfected stitching with an accurate quarter inch seam and the hour glass blocks meet perfectly in the centres... so she can crack on at home.

This is Dotty Maureen's little quilt, Disappearing 9 Patch, sometimes written D9P for short. It's a fun design to make. Dotty needed some hand stitching ready to take on our road trip on Saturday so she will be hand quilting this one.
