Caverswall Quilt Cave

Barbie spent the day quilting her Log Cabin quilt. She decided at the last meeting that she wanted a design that looked great on the back... after a little 'pondering' and finger wiggling we came up with baskets... two triangles and a handle... next time, hopefully, I will get a picture of the baskets... they are looking great.
Lynda very proudly announced that her 2 year long project was finished... wooooohoooo! This was started with another group over two years ago... they must have been a very chatty group to have one quilt take so long, ha ha ha. anyway, well done to Lynda. She learned a lot during the process but she's decided ( like a lot of the ladies) to go back to basics... she wants to perfect cutting and piecing skills...
....To do that she was going to make a Log Cabin quilt, I got out my trusty Marsha McCloskey book (Block Party... it's a great resource) and left Lynda deciding which style of Log Cabin she liked... this was the decision.. PMS (Please My Self) not exactly a Log Cabin but great for the fabrics Lynda wanted to use. This project will, most probably, not take two years to complete... Lynda's far to excited about it... he he he
Chris The Foot is back on her mission to finish a secret project. I had put a Photo of it here but, for now, It has been removed because I'm not sure about exactly how secret this one is. I will re post the photo once I get the answer and permission from Chris... what I can tell you though, is that it is gorgeous!
My "Table Top Shop, wadding on the side"... this is a small part of it... what a mess it was by the end of the day... ladies rooting and planning, experimenting and auditioning, oooooh-ing and ahhhhhh-ing... so much fun!!! See the big pile of pinky-purples? Maid Marion will be using these for her next project... lots of triangles! The pile next to it belongs to Kate's next project... I wish I could explain how excited we all get when we start new projects but I can't... you just have to be there!
We meet again next Wednesday 1st of June, 10am - 3pm for a full day of stitching and you will be made most welcome if you decide to come to play... or to visit my Table Top Shop, wadding on the side... BUT On Friday 3rd of June we have our workshop with Katherine Guerrier, this workshop is fully booked and we will be very busy learning cool new stuff so best not to visit us that day... we won't have time to make tea and coffee for you he he he... come the Friday after?
