Stitching News

Little Annette finished her quilt top during her extra class. Not only that but she pieced together a fabulous, brightly coloured backing so that the quilt can be used either way. It's mainly red so it co-ordinates perfectly.
She will start her next class by making a sandwich.
Brenda Barbara couldn't decide whether to make her Ohio Star blocks with or without HST (Half Square Triangles) in the corners, so she made up both.
... She still can't decide! What do you think?
Michelle My Belle has many blocks aaaaalmost finished and she's superbly excited about the way the quilt is taking shape...
 and I don't mean in a square or rectangular way! he he he
She had a major  minor catastrophe at one point... Thank goodness for Quilt Fudge!
Dotty arrived late, all planned as she had things to do but still she produced this Bargello in, what felt like, three minutes! The colours are a reminder of what's ahead... with the days darking themselves earlier and earlier, the trees will be turning this colour before too long.
Sporty Sue spent her day stitching on the rather marvellous Juki Beast, TL 98.
Sue started by stabilising the blocks with the walking foot and, I think I am right in saying... there will be free motion, swirly bits added later.
Jenny Barlaston shadow quilted each square on her kiddy quilt with a delicious Metler Silk Finish Multi thread. I have every colour in my very own quilt shop so there's loads of different thread to choose from, what with Metler, YLI and all those King Tuts and Rainbows we stock! 
I've added quite few Workshops to the list so, if you click on the tab at the top of my blog, you can see if you fancy treating your very own self to any of them. More will be added soon. You might notice that we've started booking 2014 already.... Already!!
