Caverswall Quilt Cave

All hands on deck for making Wendy's Pineapple Blossom sandwich... absolutely stunning isn't it... this is only the centre of the quilt as Wendy is going to use the apartment method. The borders will be made and quilted separately, measuring 18" wide, and stitched on afterwards. It's a big, bright one!

Jenny spent the day making millions of Half Square Triangles (HST's) You know, I forgot to ask what she's going to do with them so we will have to wait and be surprised next time, one thing for sure, it will be lovely!

We have three ladies name Sue now, Early Sue... she came first, Late Sue, who lives very well up to her name! and New Sue, obviously she's our most recent Sue, if we get another I'm prepared with... Nother Sue! New Sue made Teddy Quads. The recipe calls for a Jelly Roll so we just cut the strips from yardage at Table Top Shop... what rebels we are! Aren't the Quads cute! It's going to be a baby quilt, perfect!

Shirley Lerly continues to work on her huge pink and aqua patchwork. She worries that you might be getting tired of seeing her progress pictures because, she says "They always look the same"... I disagree, putting a true timeline on any project is a great thing, we can appreciate all the hours of work needed to make up our fabulous quilts... real and proper patchwork is extremely time consuming!

My Mum, Gwynneth, is making this Seminole table runner, amongst other things of course... She's made lots of quilts now you know and finally admits that she really is a quilter! wooohoooo, I thought it would never happen! We've all known it for more than a year already haven't we, he he he.

We meet again on Wednesday 8th and Friday 10th February. 10am - 3pm, I know you're itching to come and join in aren't you!!!
