Thursday Stitching

 Brenda Barbara's Keleidoscope Stack-n-Whack blocks... she's getting some amazing results isn't she... These blocks can be a little tricky to put together, the bias seams need to treated carefully. A few 'Top Tips' and Brenda was much happier with the way the blocks were turning out.
 Ann had appliqued her colourful balls to the border strips by hand, needle turn... so we were able to zig-zag stitch the wadding in place and lightly quilt the borders. Miles of binding was made with only 2 joins... the red fabric is/was a sheet so each strip was good and long. Ann has loads of hand stitching to keep her busy at home. Next week she will start a new project, she'll need 100 x 9" blocks all in black and purple-y purple, dramatic eh!
Geoff came for our afternoon session. It's quite obvious that he's playing PMS isn't it (Pleasing My Self) He chose the picture to make as a wall hanging quilt then came to My Very Own Quilt Shop to ask how to, well... art quilts aren't something I know much about so, we are making it up as we go along... it's not turning out too bad at all is it... yesterday Geoff was making the Flying Geese blocks for the borders... we used this method, it's very cool indeed.
