Stitching News With Tooting

First we shall Toot Toot for Afternoon Judith, she finished her little appliqué quilt started at the Hearts and Flowers workshop recently, mitred corners and all. Those colours are very cheery and summery aren't they... snow fell all day long though.
Tootetty Tooting for Morning Judith's single bed size quilt, this picture  isn't brilliant, the quilt is  scrumptious, for some reason the camera chose to highlight the paler purple... it's not noticeable at all on the real live quilt which is nothing short of fabulous and funky!
PM Pam bought a copy of the latest British Patchwork & Quilting magazine last week and has already made one of the quilts in it, the large Crazy pieced one (sorry no picture) as Pam had decided to make  her version of the quilt in Autumnal colours, she's making 28 Maple Leaf blocks to use for her borders.
Jean Bean started piecing her Chunky Log Cabin blocks last week thinking she was making a 24 block single quilt... the request grew! She now needs as many blocks again to make the quilt up to double size... it's lucky for Jean that the snow is forcing her to stay home sewing! 
Afternoon Judith purchased fabrics to make a large Pineapple Blossom quilt, great Quiltville favourite of my very own self, I love making these blocks, Judith did too, especially when I showed her how to stitch the second row to have all the HST's (Half Square Triangles) left over.
