Stitching News

Rose added borders to her latest quilt top and was ready to make her backing.  You know how we love to piece that backing to use up any left over bits don't you... well, Rose had all these bits left over for her backing... which will now be made into a cushion... ha ha ha, She likes the design so much it just had to be cushion-ed? See what you started PM Pam?
Krafty Karen and Early Sue have got piles! On the right  is Sue's super stacker box with 'addable' sections and her finished blocks made with 10" circles. On the right it's Karen's pizza bases, not really, there are 112 x 10" circles of wadding, 90  x 10" circles of back fabric and 90  x 10" circles of  various purple fabrics... a days work!
Princess Jackie spent the morning stripping, woooohooo... cutting all the strips ready to be stitched into 'strip sets' to make a Bargello Quilt a la Quiltville. This is one of my most favourite quilts to make you know! 

Lovely Lyn wanted to make a mini Bargello quilt, to see whether she would like to make a giant one. She used Batik fabrics, what a treat! I won't be offering prizes for guessing that this little quilt will, in fact, be made into a rather luxurious and extremely scrumptious cushion.
