Caverswall Quilt Cave

Barbie's blue Log Cabin quilt is finished all but the binding and a label. I think you will agree, that this design is stunning, every quilt in every colour way that the ladies have made has been fabulous. It's all about the contrast, don't you think. The Saw Tooth border adds to the "Wow"... Barbie is very happy with the fruits of her labour. The binding will be done with the denim-ish blue, Barbie's favourite of all the blues used. Time to start a new project... exciting.

Lynda has been stitching at home! not a huge statement I know, but... you have to remember that Lynda told us that she only worked on her projects at our meetings... she's coming over to the 'dark side'... he he he... she only started these blocks last time she was with us and already we are discussing the sashing and corner stones and her next two quilt projects have been chosen... welcome to our world Lynda!!! ha ha ha 

Maid Marion was very quiet, all day... very unusual. She wanted to concentrate on getting all her points pointy and her joins perfectly lined up. She made so many hour glass blocks that she was able to move on to joining them up to complete 8 of her pin wheels. Here we laid out the blocks with border and sashing fabrics, to get a better idea how it will look...

Dotty Maureen stitched all of her Katharine Guerrier blocks together, as you can see. She's still not sold on working with so many different fabrics. The centre bit is not in the 'centre', all the little squares that I'm sure you can see, this continues to bother Dotty actually as she wanted them in the middle. The only way to do that is to make more scrappy half square triangle blocks... lets see what she decides... Dotty can practice PMS (Pleasing My Self)... I think it's fabulous as it is.

We meet again next Wednesday, 22nd June. 10am - 3pm. We're going to learn about machine appliqué... that's the theory. There will be a short demonstration 'how to' done by me myself, then we will fly from there with whatever happens... one thing I have learned in my time with these lovely ladies is not to plan too much, he he he, we take it as it happens. One thing never changes though... we always have fun!
