Stitching News

Morning Judith brought in a few finished projects, I missed the opportunity to get pictures of the others but the main Toot Toot Toot is here... Paper Pieced baubles and a finished Christmas Tree wall hanging, started at a recent workshop in My Very Own Classroom.

Angie (not me) arrived ready to make her Railfence sandwich and to start on the quilting. Her beautiful little Elna Lotus-like machine is in the sewing machine hospital so she used my old faithful Bernina 153...

Pm Pam was inspired by Wendy's wall hanging... displayed in My Very Own Quilt Shop, so she bought the book and ran up this fabulous apron... of course... now, we all want one!

Jean Bean played with pebbles, red thread on red fabric, great for practising new designs so... Jean's practised a lot and now she's very good at free motion quilting pebbles, on the back of the quilt they look fabulous too.

Morning Judith got used to sewing with these bright and funky fabrics now, she's made 19, so that's just 5 to go... plus the border blocks which will need 72 x 3 1/2" half square triangles

Cynthia (looks like Bev) is absolutely thrilled to bits that she has been able to make this huge quilt. She made it in three separate parts...rooms, all joined together after quilting to make the apartment... Apartment Quilting! Sort of quilt as you go... but different. She's working on the borders now... getting bigger by the minute!

PM Pam likes to work on a few projects at the same time... Last week this was just an idea and a bit of fabric. By the end of this week's class, after having quilted the appliqué apron, Pam was ready to sandwich and quilt this fabulous giant floor cushion to be gifted to a very lucky little lady.
