Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Lovely Lyn made a lamb sandwich! For the back she chose some fabric with fun little cars in lots of colours so as to make the quilt double sided fun. Can you see the fabulous border fabric too? All tied together with the bright orange inner border. Lyn started to quilt using her darning foot and free motion quilting... she's shadowing the flock of sheep whilst thinking about the background design.
Lizzy brought in her two sandwiches and chose a rather gorgeous King Tut, Tone-on-Tone thread in a sort of mulled wine colour, it was perfect for today's job of quilting. Lizzy decided to stitch in the ditch, not ditch hopping as she's quite an expert by now, of the Churndash blocks and she will probably follow the sashing too. The borders will be quilted once the two halves have been stitched together... and there could quite possibly be a little free motion for the borders.
Marisabel and Messy Maureen escaped the camera so you will have to wait until next week to see what they are working on.

We meet again next Tuesday, 14th February 10am to 3pm... there won't be a lot of romancing but I bet there will be chocolate!

I love the way that the sheep look as though they have pinched flowers to munch from that gorgeous border fabric. Yummy shade of the King Tut too.
