Caverswall Quilt Cave

Chris The Foot had threatened to make a sandwich during the day but it didn't happen. She wanted to make the Churndash corner stones and needed to get them attached to the rather fabulous border pieces... next week, for sure there will be a sandwich made, good and early so that Chris can start quilting, wooohoo
Foxy Margaret had continued making the braided patchwork that she started last week. She joined two strips together for each place mat and quilted them, 4 times... she didn't quilt them 4 times, I meant... she made 4 of them... She said she only needs 3 but it's never a bad thing to have a spare.
Maggi continued piecing her block parts from the Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope workshop last Saturday. She had them all sorted out so was able to chain piece, she's been a professional sewer for ever so this piecing business is second nature to her... don't you love that green fabric! It's a Bella Solid from Moda, I had loads of new colours delivered this week. They look just lovely lined up together...

Wendy also chain pieced her blocks, at one stage she had, what looked like, bunting about half a mile long... by the end of our quilty gathering she had completed 11 Kaleidoscope blocks and don't they look luxurious, there's a creamy pattern on the fabric and it looks very lacy as it whizzes round in the blocks but I don't think you can see it in the picture?
Annie Pie made larger blocks... she had a 9" pattern repeat on her fabric so she decided to make em bigger... she could have opted to divide them in half and have more, smaller blocks... like Late Sue's but she practices PMS (Pleasing My Self)... one advantage is that she has fewer blocks to stitch together so she's almost finished her lap quilt top.

I hope you've remembered to go rooting in your fabrics ready for our Saturday Swap Shop this weekend, details are in the right side bar... right at the top!
