Stitching News

Fran finished her fabulous lap quilt... toot toot toot!
This design is proving very popular with our quilters, it's from the book
Two From One Jelly Roll.
Fran won her Jelly Roll in the Bunting Raffle at My Shop's very own birthday celebration in March. The great news is... she still has half a Jelly Roll to play with after completing this quilt.
See this is the exact same design. Jean Bean isn't using a Jelly Roll though, we calculated the yardage (in metres though...he he) so that Jean could stick to her chosen colour theme. I think I heard Jean proclaim that she needs about two thousand more blocks?
Maggie had made herself a little sample quilt with one of her left over Kaleidoscope Stack-n-Whack blocks. She wanted to practice different ways of quilting it before she commits on the big, beautiful, actual quilt... good idea eh.

Marisabel spent the day making her fabulous sandwich. This job can be painful if you suffer from a 'dickie back' so... pin a bit and rest a bit, pin a bit , drink coffee, pin a bit... eventually it gets done and you get to enjoy the company of lovely ladies... not to mention adding projects to your 'To Do' list.
Wendy used the Square Dance blocks to make a brilliant tote bag, which in turn has inspired others to want to try the pattern. Luckily there's a Square Dance Quilt workshop on Saturday this week, the 18th in fact... two places remain if you would like to see how the design works.
