Quiltville... one of my most favourite scrappy quilts to make.
Irene's been working on these wonderful blocks for only a couple of weeks... what a clever design. It's a sort of Log Cabin, a square wrapped only on two sides, but has the look of a rather special Rail Fence. Irene chose great colours to show off this design... don't ya think?
See, I demonstrated the Bargello a few weeks ago... only Wendy wanted to make one, so she did, but the others were keeping an eye on her... Once the ladies saw how lovely Wendy's quilt was, more wanted to have a go... and so it goes... even Dotty Maureen couldn't resist. She's tried them before with written instructions, and got in a muddle... it's a very visual thing really, much easier to 'watch How to make Bargello' than to read it, even with pictures... You can see that Dotty's will look very luscious indeed!
Foxy Margaret brought this quilt in to show us that it was finished. If you remember... it started off as a table runner, you can tell by the centre eh... she wanted it a bit bigger, so added wide borders. Then she found she had lots of small pieces of orange fabric that co-ordinated well... so she went for another border.... and another. It's a lovely lap size now... Margaret is having a little dilemma, this quilt was made as a gift... but she loves it... "will it go or will it stay with Margaret?" watch this space! ha ha ha Soap Opera suspense ending for this post... da da daaaaaaaaaaa!
We meet again on Friday 19th August, 10am - 3pm as usual. More fabrics arrived for my Table Top Shop, wadding on the side... I'll have muscles like Popeye if the shop gets any bigger! See you there?
