Uttoxeter Quilt Class

AJ (Angela That's not me) has started on the centre blocks for her Log Cabin quilt (Lilly's Colours on the right side bar) Wow... this quilt is going to be wonderful, I love the red triangle.... I made a mistake and had AJ cut 2 1/2" strips instead of 2"... sorry AJ! She cut more strips 2" wide... no point in wasting a half inch strip by trimming the others down if we don't have to... but it could mean she has her binding strips already cut?
It took Lizzie almost all of her last meeting to make only one of these pineapple blossom blocks, this meeting she made a big pile of them in the same amount of time. She has the instructions printed out from, they are very clear and easy to follow.
Dotty Maureen was inspired by the D9P (Disappearing 9 Patch) quilts you can find online, so she made one of her own, with tiny pieces.... she took great care to get all the seams lined up and accurate, which is a good thing to do if it pleases you!
Giggly Gillian finished her very own Mat & Ruler Bag and moved on to her Scrappy Chunky Churndash blocks. Each centre will be fussy cut from cat fabric like the one in this photograph.... she's making it for cat lovers you see....
Messy Maureen had to carry her very own, brand new, sewing machine today... she had gotten very used to me having it all set up for her when she arrived, now that she bought it she has extra work to do before she can start stitching... but the 'cuppa tea' still comes first! ha ha ha

We meet again next Tuesday 27th April.... once again the tables are all taken so there are no spare places, sorry.
Please take note.....
Our meeting for the following Tuesday, which would have been 4th May, has had to be moved to Wednesday 5th May and will include lunch... but that's a 'full-up' day too, he he he.
