Stitching News

Gail merrily quilted all day... She stabilized all the blocks by quilting the sashing first and will decide how she wants to quilt the individual blocks once the inspiration hits her. For now though, Gail could finish the quilting of the borders, cut the crusts off and add the binding if she wanted to.
Chris The Foot came to play, she added the final lap of border to her bed scarf so it's ready to be sandwiched. This quilt is approximately 37" wide and, about, 108" long... 2.7 metres ... it was quite tricky to photograph!
Sporty (Late) Sue joined all of her stunning Jelly Roll blocks together and proceeded to add the most fabulous pieced borders... you can see that this quilt is going to be a beauty can't you? Next time I'll get a picture of those borders for you... Sue invented them, all by her very own self.
And last, but not at all least, Barbie made up a pieced backing by making up another braid strip, this time with 3" x 8" strips, it looks great, picture below... she just about had enough time to make her sandwich so, guess what Barbie will be doing with every spare moment of the next few days?
