Annie Pie's Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt sandwich, in the making... Dotty Maureen was helping out as usual... she's like our resident pinner, bless! They were chattering away as they pinned and sounded like they were enjoying themselves... even with back ache! he he
Chatty Cathy will have 54 of these little Log Cabin blocks, once they are all finished. She's planning on them all being complete by next week so we will be able to play with the block placement... oh so many to choose from with the log Cabin blocks, no matter their size, every quilt is quite lovely
Marilla joined us for her first time. She's a hand piecer, and does the tiniest little stitches, she sews quite quickly too, all these were made in the one session. This Hexagon project is homework given by Barbara Chainey from one of the workshops Marilla attended... Now that My Mum Gwynneth saw Marilla's Hexagons, she wants to make some too, even though they are very small!
Shirley Lerly is getting brilliant centres on her pin-wheels... a little, but very important, top tip that I shared with Lerly, right at the beginning of making these blocks has proved to be very useful indeed. She loves precise piecing and takes great care to achieve it... that must be where Posh Lizi gets it from, what a wonderful gift to pass on to your very own daughter!
Dotty Maureen's Witch quilt top needs a backing next... no backing, no sandwich. She wanted to use up all the fabric she had left over. Dotty switched pieces round several times in an effort to make do but, no matter which way they went, there just wasn't enough fabric... Dotty went home to root in her stash... there must be some piece of fabric she could use... and if there isn't... I know where she could go to purchase a little bit of purple... I have lovely purples in my very own quilt shop, which is just around the corner from Dotty's house!!
Oh look what a lovely stage there was at Caverswall Village Hall for most of the day, our ladies are making the most amazing projects, don't you think?
