Tuesday Stitching

Early Sue's finger is all better, thank goodness... she's back to stitching at full speed. She spent the day piecing her Kaleidoscope blocks together... rotary cutting is still a little painful so I polished my halo and did that little job for her.. don't the blocks look beautiful!
Krafty Karen also spent the day pieceing her Kaleidoscope blocks, this Clarice Cliffe fabric is amazing cut the Stack-n-Whack way, each block is stunning. Karen chose this lovely 'rich custard' coloured fabric in which to set the blocks.. I love it!
Lovely Lyn had joined her blocks together in 4's. Each set was made into a separate sandwich and, once Lyn had used her walking foot to stabilize the sashing parts, she did free-motion quilting in each Kaleidoscope.. it was brilliant and and looked like flowers on the back... lots of oooo's and ahhhh's when we flipped the quilt over
Rose got so much done... remember this fabric was destined to become a cushion... it's a gorgeous lap quilt sandwich now. Rose played with fabrics from my very own quilt shop, placing them in different orders around the quilt centre. We decided on the cream 1/2" inner border followed by 1 1/4" red with white dots then the daring blue for 5"... you have to admit it's a stunning quilt now! It's all pinned ready for quilting as soon as Rose gets back from her holidays.

What great results, I particularly like the black and white/cream one. Why have your photos gone so small??
