Stitching News

Michelle My Belle almost finished making her perfect blocks. Each one has had very careful consideration as to which fabrics go where and very careful treatment with pinning and stitching.
Now the decisions will continue for the block placement...
Remember, we do this for fun!
Barbara BB just could not decide which fabric to use as her binding... we were no help at all as we all liked a different one... Jenny Barlaston suggested we make faux-faux piped binding so that we could choose two fabrics each... Happy with the most popular idea, that's what happened. You will see the result next time, you can spot that there was red involved though eh
Lyn Scatterpin kept all of her pins in her new little pot... she says they are way too marvellous and much too expensive to be scattering around under the table! ha ha ha Lyn's got almost all of her four patch units ready plus a million HST (Half Square Triangles)
Merrily's Statue Of Liberty is complete... Choosing the background fabric was tricky and why choose only one when two looked great? The enormity of the quilt has now landed "Splat!"... it's much bigger looking at it for 'real'... no worries, we shall apartment quilt with one method or another.
Claire finished stitching her beautiful strip sets at home so chopped them all up again in class. She likes accuracy for her junctions... and she got it... thank goodness for pins!... On to the borders next time.
We have a few seats left for our coach trip to the Festival Of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham, Sunday 11th August. Leaving Cheadle, Staffordshire at 9am and picking up in Tean High Street and Uttoxeter bus station on the way. Call me if you would like to join us... 07807530441 to reserve your seat at £14.00 and/or to purchase an entrance ticket at only £10
