Caverswall Quilt Cave

Charlotte finished her lovely Railfence quilt Toot toot toot....
Just in time to go back to University. This is a super-sized table runner and is just about perfect for a Bed Scarf... which was Charlotte's intention when she began... bed scarves are a brilliant idea, don't you think? I know it doesn't look it but this scarf is about three metres long and it was Charlotte's first ever quilt!

Helen is taking a short break from her heirloom quilt to do some smaller, fun things... Christmas Stockings for gifts.  These are made from panels (availabubble in My Very Own Quilt Shop) She's quilting all the stocking fronts and backs and making 3D holly leaves...
Maid Marion's heirloom quilt centre... stunning isn't it! It's already got wadding behind every block, trapunto areas have a few layers actually... now it has one last layer of wadding and a backing and all the pins...... heavy? oh yes... a very heavy sandwich and there will be 18" borders added to all sides.

Marilla loves to piece by hand. Here, she's foundation piecing a crazy patchwork design in heart shapes... she stitches away and picks up top tips about cutting with our rotary cutting equipment... she's tempted to try a little machine piecing too.

New Sue popped in to make a sandwich with her stunning Kaleidoscope Stack-n-Whack quilt top centre, what a mouthful that is! I know I have mentioned it before.. I'll just remind you... you don't have to be a regular attendee of our Caverswall Quilt Cave to use our tables for making sandwiches, you just book your tables, pop in, make your sandwich, pay £5.00 and  you're done... I always take rolls of wadding to the hall too, which is great if you forget to bring yours... he he he.
