Friday Quilt Club

Barbie pieced her backing, purchased some of my wonderful Cream Rose wadding and announced that it was sandwich time... this quilt just about fit my the tables too... Quilts larger than this one will have to be done over at Caverswall Village Hall... as you know we have tables galore in our Quilt Cave
My Mum (Gwynneth) is back from her holidays so she came to play for the day. I had managed to finish all of the free motion quilting, just framing the leaves and meandering the log parts, so Mum only needed to do the 'Ditch Hopping' around the borders... she made the binding and trimmed the 'Crusts' off...
Helen, who was preparing thousands of triangles ready for her Heirloom quilt, had personal assistance from My Mum, much to the envy of Maid Marion, she was drawing carefully measured lines while Helen was carefully prrressing the tiny seams in place and planning the stitches that will cover each triangle... lots of decision making for Helen.
Late Sue finished the centre of her Ohio Star quilt. She's making it to the instruction of her Mother-in-Law who wanted a purpley-lilac and white quilt. Sue found a perfect patterned fabric for the first border (in my very own quilt shop) the second border will be 1/2" wide and of the white fabric. The final border will be piano keys made from all the fabrics left over from making the top... which we know will look fabulous...

Monday class will be the beginners again... I shall have to tell them that they are no longer beginners though as we will be adding binding and labels... with one quilt finished, they are plain and simply... Quilters! woooohoooo!

With a name like Barbie I was expecting something pink perhaps!
