Cynthia finished up her lap quilt top by adding the final border strips, she's making this one for her very own self to use. Next week she'll be needing to make a sandwich so that she can get the quilting done, this quilt needs to be finished in time for the cooler weather... which starts?... right now, apparently!
Toot Toot Toot for PM Pam... she finished this Tumbler quilt with carefully made Faux Piped Binding which trims it off perfectly. It's quite a long quilt and no-one was tall enough to hold it up enough for a smooth picture, but I'm sure you can see how lovely it is. Pam's making 6 scatter cushions to go with this beauty. Each one will be different but using a selection of the fabrics in the quilt.
Afternoon Judith had finished her quilting so it was time to accurately trim the crusts off this baby play mat (quilt), make the binding and get it stitched into place. Trimming is a job that needs to be done precisely really otherwise the edges will be quite wavy, which is quite fine if you want your edges wavy!!!
