Caverswall Quilt Cave, part 1

My Mum's (Gwynneth's) leaf quilt, all stitched together and looking fabulous, don't you agree? It isn't quite big enough at this stage so we had a short discussion about various options... Mum didn't want to use a pieced block border because she thinks it's busy enough, besides, she's almost run out of the Autumnal fabrics now... we did have one great idea and she's going to try it out...


Irene very happily held up her latest finished quilt top. It's all her very own design and has been a great learning experience for her. This quilt is going to be gifted to Irene's Grandson and, apparently, it's the same colour as his boat... he's an Olympic canoeist... I would guess that the boat is a canoe then?


Annie Pie has been missing us, she hasn't been able to come to our Quilt Cave for about seven weeks... she busied about all day soaking up the giggles and chatter. Annie is making several quilts of these wreath designs, she's going to be calling them "Circle Of Life"... deep and meaningful... if only I could remember the rest.. Annie help?
Helen had a little break from her heirloom quilt because she wanted to make this lovely door hanging quilt for a friend's daughter. Helen had great fun piecing lots of pink scraps together for the block centres and rummaged in Joan The Shop's bits and bobs for fabrics to join it all together, lovely isn't it.

Dotty Maureen is having a little change around at home and is unable to find her place mats... I suggested she could make some to use while the others are lost... in true Dotty Maureen fashion... quick as a flash... taaaa daaaa... finished in one day!

We meet again on Friday 27th January. 10am - 3pm as usual.
More project photos to follow soon...

Lots of lovely colour today. Your mum's quilt is great. Irene is so proud of her Grandson, quite rightly too, and he is going to be equally proud of what she has done for him.
