Stitching News

Jenny Barlaston had this brilliant idea... making 40 ruby red applique hearts for a ruby wedding anniversary gift quilt. She's been collecting red fabrics for quite a while now so every heart is actually a different fabric, lovely.

Ann is still working on her black and purple Ohio Star quilt but, as there is no hurry to finish it, she's decided to make Christmas cushions as well.

PM Pam had shown her lovely cushions to a friend... you won't be surprised to know that the friend has commissioned Pam to make a cushion for her will you?

Geoff is suffering a weeks holiday from work... all those outdoors-y jobs stand no chance of getting done with all the rain and flooding we're experiencing, so... he decided to sew... after a visit to my very own quilt shop, Geoff made this quilted tote bag for his wife using my tutorial for the Big Quilted Panel Bag.  

Jean Bean has all of the blocks stabilized now so she was able to trim away a lot of the excess wadding. With everything stable, Jean can quilt the borders and bind the lovely quilt before doing her free motion design, makes it much easier to squish through the machine hole..

Shirley Lerly is making a quilt for her Dad, Bento Box. She's made up quite a few blocks now... folk in class have seen what she's up to so it looks like we might have a few of these quilts being made sometime soon. Isn't it a great feeling , knowing your quilt inspired others to make one too! 

Princess Jackie eventually added borders and corner stones to her Christmas Tree wall hanging. The measurements for her blocks and the lining up the block at the top of the tree have proved a little taxing... she cracked it in the end and all the effort has paid off for another fabulous tree!

Lovely Lyn finished all of her quilting and added the binding. There's just the hand stitching to do as homework and a label of course, and it will be ready to have it's very own Toot toot toot moment!

I could no longer keep the other computer going, the blooming thing kept crashing... but I knew how to use it... I am learning to use this one, can't get on with the photo sorting very well... so I do apologize for any rubbish pictures you see... be happy there are pictures though... that's a good thing! ha ha ha
