here if you haven't found it yet, and please remember that it works with any size squares, you do not have to use those Layer Cake things. Every one of my ladies has made theirs with different sizes and every one looks fabulous. Brenda's blocks are 8inches. Choosing a strong fabric for those centre Cathedral-ly Window-y bits was a good plan eh! Brenda worked on the borders today, first a thin inner one then irregular rectangles for the main part.
Helen's been quilting all day. First, after coffee of course, she finished all the walking foot stuff, Ditch Hopping! Then was able to start with her very favourite, free-motion quilting. Each block can be done with different designs so Helen was very happy, she loves playing with her Bernina Baby. Most of the designs followed the Patchwork piecing within the block with an arty touch added here and there, and meandering, there has to be a little bit of meandering
Oh, look at this... Lynda is so happy with this quilt. She's working on the borders now. Colourful 'bricks' framed with black... like you can just see there at the top of the picture, they will go all round the quilt top. Each corner will have a yellow square to enhance the yellow centres in the blocks and the whole thing is looking soooo good.
Dotty Maureen, very proudly held up her baby play mat quilt. Each patchwork piece has been traced with a template, even though there are rulers to make these shapes. She wanted to test her accuracy. What a lovely bright quilt it is too, much brighter than my picture I promise you. She chose a fabulous backing so there will probably be a sandwich in the making next time we meet.
We meet again next Wednesday 17th and on Friday 19th August. 10am - 3pm as usual. More new fabrics have arrived, they were waiting for me when I got home.
I doubt I will be able to blog now until Monday. Festival of Quilts has my full attention, you just know that I will be having fun and maybe I will meet you there... I'll be the one with the shiny halo!! ha ha ha... a quilt angel needs a halo!
