Stitching News

Sometimes it's fun to make a very small stitching project... especially when it's as useful as a pincushion... Cynthia made this one for her very own self using the Cathedral Window block. A few special friends will be receiving pin cushions just like this one throughout the year
Chris finished stitching on her borders. She added corner stones too. There was just enough time to piece a backing, using the left over strips, and to make a sandwich... it's ready for quilting now...
Cute-e-tty Cute fabrics eh!
PM Pam had been busy over the weekend. One more finished quilt top, single bed size plus a bit. This is a great design for when you don't want to cut your fabrics up too small.
On the back Pam used left over fabrics to add the lucky little lady's name, frame it then stitch it into the backing fabric. Pam will take this quilt to Caverswall to make a sandwich next week... thank goodness for all the tables we have availabubble there!
Our newly re-named 'Lady Judith' ( was Afternoon Judith) finished these two cushions and then set to work making her 9" Pineapple Blossom blocks... they're for a quilt that's to be gifted for Christmas... 2012.. so it's a little late already, he he he.
Margaret had attended the Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope this last Saturday and popped in to show us that she's been doing her homework. She's pleased to have mastered lining up all the points in the middle using the very clever 'top tips' she picked up at the workshop.
Ann Baker wanted a super sized table runner made with these four blocks. I couldn't figure out the mathemisms for the setting triangles with borders at first so we set the blocks out on my lovely white tables, took a ruler and pencil and drew the tricky bits... onto the table tops... thank goodness for Cif!
Didn't we do well, this design is a keeper!
