Stitching News And Tooting

Raise your trumpets ready to blow... toot toot toot for Jenny Barlaston's latest finish... a kiddy play mat (quilt) ready for gifting, well ahead of schedule which must deserve an extra tootetty toot?
I'm not sure whether you will be able to see that Jenny used a delicious variegated thread to quilt with the Bernina number 4 stitch, elongated to suit. This quilt is hanging in My very own classroom if you would like to see it for a better lookey-look
Gail finished off a few lines of border quilting and added her binding. Later she practised her free motion quilting to see whether she feel she dare add a few highlights to the background of this, very pretty, little girl quilt... I think she decided not to, this time.
PM Pam, The Cushion Queen, finished her Tote bag made from Charm Squares that she started at the workshop on Saturday. Pam's embellished hers with funky buttons... seems the bag has been requested already... I wonder how many bags Pam will be making, not as many as her cushions I hope.
Ann Baker also finished her Charm Pack Tote. Ann's been sewing for a million years so she's very experienced, she's added posh pockets and fancy handles that are lined... just because she can, she doesn't suffer from Bag-lexia or Zip-phobia like what I do! ha ha ha... During the workshop Ann had played with her fancy stitches as she quilted the 5 panels.
