Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Messy Maureen finished quilting her Diamond Jubilee raffle prize and made just enough binding for it. She had to dash before she could stitch it on though as she was doing yet another 'stint' at a charity shop in town. Messy Maureen does a lot of volunteer work, hat's off to her eh! The binding will be white so as not to spoil the colour scheme, Red White And Blue, I bet the Queen would be chuffed to bits to win this table topper!

Marisabel has been 'globe trotting' but she's back with us now... she trimmed up her Bargello Wall Hanging, made her binding, stitched it on and had another little lesson to get the join perfect. Then she put it away as she can do the hand stitching at home. She started cutting all the bits ready for a Quick Table Topper... Knowing Marisabel, it will probably be finished for next time we meet!

Lovely Lyn continued working on her 10 Minute blocks. She's decided to make a lap quilt with them and will add the extra 'Cathedral-ly window-y' bits to all of the junctions... it proved to be a little tricky because the fabric placement is quite important with only using 2 colours for the background.

Gillian continued to work on her 'thousands' of HST (Half Square Triangles)... she was threatening to start sewing them together when next we meet. Which will be 25th October.
The ladies wanted to meet next week but I am unavailable because I will be presenting my quilts once again in Caverswall Village Hall... it's only £2 to get in if you would like to go too... the money is all for a good cause, but I forget what it is right now... hey ho... it should be fun...

Half square triangles are fun to make. Once you get the hang of the process, making them is easy even in blended colors.
