Catching Up

My very own Quilt Shop opened up in a 'back to normal' way on Thursday 3rd... wow... talk about hitting the ground running....folks are so happy to be on this side of the 'Sewing Prevention' season! ha ha ha. The phone never stopped ringing all morning with enquiries about workshops and classes... they want to come have fun with us... 
Here's a few pictures... not a lot of time for taking pictures!
Sheila's been busy making her fussy cut hexagons.. there were enough to start plotting the layout... I have to say, and I'm sure you will agree, it's looking quite fabulous

Brenda Barbara finished her festive stitchy stuff  so was able to take her Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope  quilt sandwich from the banister and get it under her Bernina Baby sewing needle... I'm sure Brenda was just waiting for inspiration to hit, not procrastinating at all... no matter now... it's been started!

Jenny Barlaston worked away on this little romantic wall hanging... she volunteered to teach 'something' to a craft group about three months ago... someone must have pinched the three months though... the class is next week! ha ha ha... she'll be ready in time, I'm sure.

This quilt sandwich was finished just in the nick of time... we don't have quite as much table space as there is at Caverswall Quilt Cave, so everyone has to move over a smidgen. Charm Packs don't half make lovely little quilts don't they...
Diane's cute on... there must be something in the air that has her making a neutral baby quilt, with extremely cute fabrics, ready and waiting, 'just in case'... actually it's a very good idea to make a baby quilt or two for 'just in case'... the smaller quilts are great fun to work on.
 Sporty (Late) Sue had us drooling at Quilt Club. She's finished her stunning blocks... my goodness my picture doesn't even begin to show you how fabulous this project is... those blocks are all made from a single Jelly Roll, a Batik Jelly Roll no less! obviously not the blue background fabric... that's yardage of one of Moda's Bella Solids.
Gail loved the quilt that Jean Bean made for her grandson Alfi recently so, fully inspired, she appliquéd AVA for her Granddaughter... what a lucky name to appliqué... no need to worry about mirror imaging eh! See the clock.... Gail finished just in the nick of time!... 
What a lovely wall there in the background of Gails quilt... in My Very Own Quilt Shop, thank you Mr Helpful Hubby Dave for putting up my peg board that I purchased in February 2012, he he he... better late that never... I love it... makes it look like a real shop!
