Thursday Stitching

Starting off with a Toot Toot Toot for Princess Jackie's scrappy quilt, actually it's a multi fabric quilt as it wasn't made from scraps at all... what a fabulous, bright quilt this is... 
Take a look at the back of the quilt, made to use up some of the left over fabrics...
Can you see the brilliant quilting design, I hope so... it's 'Points and Bellies'

New Sue announced that she has a new grand baby... it's a blue one and he needs a quilt! Time to make a baby quilt car seat quilt with a free pattern on the Moda Bake Shop site. It's only about 25" wide finished, a really quick gift... at least you would have thought so.

Brenda Barbara found a pattern in a magazine for making a full table top set...4 place mats and a centre runner... we weren't sure we understood the cutting instructions properly so we got out the trusty 501 blocks book... Brenda cut the components for all 7 blocks before she started stitching.

Princess Jackie's decided to perfect piecing triangles... having never even cut a triangle before! Flying Geese blocks are tricky to get perfect for most folk, don't you think? but Jackie is not going to be beaten by a few pointy points! The Geese units turned out well actually, the seams are rolling over in this picture.
