Stitching News

Helen came to the Bargello workshop at My Very Own Quilt Shop a few weeks ago and, after working on her giant quilt, she finished piecing the rows together and got it quilted. There's no backing on this quilt as it will be stretched over a frame and used as a wall hanging... good idea eh!

Kate was happy to be making her bright and summery quilt sandwich. She'd made millions and trillions of  HST (Half Square Triangles) after our workshop with Katherine Guerrier, quite a while ago. Can you see all the lines and secondary shapes that the 3" squares make?

My Wife Beth is our latest recruit. She's got gazillions of project ideas in her head and she wants to make every one... strange? oh no, we all enjoy that eh!
There's no Railfence beginner quilt for this lady... she's jumped straight into making up designs, all by her very own self... fun!
We had a little discussion about our fast approaching Linus Quilt Day (please click on the link for more information about Project  Linus) I thought I would remind you about the details too.
On Wednesday 19th June you can come to Caverswall Village Hall, 10am -3pm, to make quilts. Complete quilt kits will be provided, but you can bring your own quilt or quilt kit if you would like to donate it to Heather for Linus.
You just need to bring your sewing machine, your general sewing notions and supplies, pins, scissors, rotary cutting equipment etc. I guess you will need safety pins too.
If you would like to make a quilt from a kit but you are unable to attend the day, just contact me and I will have one saved for you.
The cost for the day will remain at £15.00 per person and all money, after hall expenses will be donated to Linus towards the buying of essentials like wadding.
If you have any projects or quilt blocks that you will probably not use... like those blocks you made to practice a design, the blocks left over 'cause you made too many, please bring them too... they will be used!
You will need to book if you plan to attend so that we can make sure there are enough tables, cables and quilt kits. Any questions?
