Caverswall Quilt Cave

It's mean pickings from the camera again this time, we had a great and extremely productive day though, almost a full house again.
This 10 Minute Block quilt belongs to Brenda Barbara, I took a rather artistic photo with a slight angle hoping that you would be able to see her free motion quilting with the light skimming over it, she did such a good job of the quilting. Brenda chose to stitch straight lines in the pieced border... doesn't it look fabulous, a great combination with the churly whirly stitching in the centre!! This quilt will have Faux Piped Binding too...

Helen had a very fiddly day stitching beads on to this block for her Heirloom quilt, she must be a very patient lady, this kind of work would drive me nuts. Helen's going to have to make 3 more blocks, all with these tiny pearl beads stitched on them. Click here to see the book the three ladies are working from, Amazon allow you to look at a few pages too... I bet you say "Wow"!

Dotty Maureen, the proud new owner of a Bernina Aurora 440QE, she's been waiting over 3 years to get one!.. Would you like to know what she did at our meeting... hand stitching!!! he he he. She was Twiddling and Fiddling Jennie Rayment style on this kiddie quilt. She used fabric with a hospital theme and the quilt will be given to a children's ward when it's finished.

Arty Beryl recently donated this quilt top to Maid Marion, this and another a bit smaller. Marion is going to quilt them both and give them to charity, Marion is so generous and is always making something for charity, even sandwiches, he he he quilty ones of course. Dotty Maureen helped her with the pinning, of course.
Sheila has almost finished her commissioned quilt. She only joined us at our Quilt Cave recently and, I think you can tell, she's a long way from being a beginner! Absolutely anyone can come play, it's such a great way to spend a day, chatting, stitching, laughing and wandering round getting inspired! Sheila didn't get the date wrong either, so you don't need to be sending me emails about it, ha ha ha. See Faux Piped Binding is becoming the new normal at quilt cave too!

We meet again on Wednesday 1st and Friday 3rd February, weather permitting as there were talks of snow on the news this morning.
Please take note of the time for this blog post... I slept in! 6:30am, sure beats 1:30am!!!

Fascinated by your classes - does everyone bring their own machine? The work turned out is inspiring. (I wonder if it is like my bookclub? I just HAVE to read the sometimes dreadful book or I feel that I have let down my friends). xx
