Friday Quilt Club

Chrissie Poppins... not a new lady, she was Chrissie B but yesterday she pulled so much fabric out of her bag, which hadn't even looked full, that I decided she must be related to THE Mary Poppins. She, Chrissie Poppins, brought in her scrap fabric collection to make a Mat & Ruler Bag, as you can see... it's an original and extremely practical work of art!

Jenny Barlaston is on a mission to finish at least a few of her PhD's (Projects Half Done) She promised her very own self that she wouldn't start anything new until she had the pile tamed. This quilt is a result of a workshop Jenny attended quite a while ago, what a fabulous way to not cut up a gorgeous fabric!! The bit about not starting anything new didn't work but don't tell Jenny that we noticed!

Helen got rather creative for the borders on this commission quilt. I don't know whether you will be able to see better if you click on the picture? This marks the end of Helen's happy phase, she's working on the Faux Piped Binding now.. she doesn't enjoy the fiddley stuff any where near as much as when she's quilting... but it has to be done!

Friday Quilt Club will meet on Good Friday 6th April, as normal. 10am - 3pm

Love the colours from Chrissie's scrap bag. I notice that even the chair is colour coordinated. Jenny and Helen's quilts are lovely too.
