Uttoxeter Quilt Class
Jenni's first twin baby quilt... a rubbish picture but you can see enough... Jenni added the borders after adding only one more row of Railfence blocks. This quilt has a thin inner border in the yellow fabric that Jenni will use for twin baby quilt number 2... and that quilt will have an inner border of this minty green... so both twins will have a quilt that is the same ... but different!
Messy Maureen finished the 4 blocks she's been working on, stitched them together and added a white border. In no time at all, she had cut the backing and made a sandwich all by her very own self. She made good progress with her quilting too, changing thread colours as she stitched because this table topper needs to be crisp... Red, White and Blue.
Lizzy has completed 21 Churndash blocks so far. Each one is very accurate. Lizzy takes great care with her Prrrrressing and pinning you see, and it pays off! I think Lizzy needs 20 or so more of these blocks before she can decide on the sashing... "to sash or not to sash"... this is the question! he he he... I think there will be sashing as Lizzy wants to quilt this large project in 4 quarters before joining them, like Giggly Gillian did with this one.
We meet again on October 11th at The Bank House Hotel in Uttoxeter. 10am to 3pm and the class is fully booked, sorry... actually, not sorry at all... very Happy!!!!
