Stitching News

Meryl finished her first ever quilt, the Railfence Table Runner... she's so very pleased with it.  Meryl enjoyed her first few classes so much that she's converted her spare room into a SEWING ROOM, yeeehaaa and toot toot toot!!... welcome to the dark side Meryl! 

Posh Lizi's beautiful Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt blocks with some of her sashing strips,
There's going to have to be another Workshop for this method, Lizi's blocks started it off all over again... just lovely aren't they... 

Wendy came to play... she brought along a big box of scraps, a Jelly Roll, these Wonky Star blocks and some triangle-y-bit blocks ... to see what we could do with them, this is how far we got... there's a plan for the border  but more triangle-y-bit blocks will be needed for that.
Matthew added this thin red border before stitching on the main fabric to his Railfence table runner... I/we love those little inner border treatments!... Matthew finished his quilt top, made a sandwich and got loads of the quilting done.
Vicky didn't need a second table runner, Matthews will be fine (Mr & Mrs), so she's making a kiddy quilt for gifting using the Railfence design with slightly wider cut strips. It's quite a bit bigger that a table runner so we ran out of time to start quilting it, next time...
