Stitching News

Giggly Gillian had added piano key borders to her alphabet panel last week. With reflection, this week she decided that they made the quilt a little too big... so she chopped them off! PMS (Pleasing My Self) is very much encouraged in y classroom... Licketty - split there was a sandwich... by the end of Gillian's day she had almost all of the quilting done too. 
Princess Jackie has now completed her wonderful Quilt top. Class was at full capacity this week so she wasn't able to make a sandwich... thank goodness we have Saturday Sandwich days in my very own shop... Jackie booked her sandwich slot and then moved on to another project for the rest of her class.
Inspired by one of Christabelle's cushions, PM Pam made this little quilt. She had hand stitched the Hexagons whilst away on a recent trip, they make a perfectly portable project... Pam's little quilt will also be made in to a fabulous cushion...
 isn't it wonderful to be able to inspire someone!!

Gail had been busy... she not only finished her lovely quilt top but she had sandwiched it too! Gail has decided to quilt diagonal lines and got a lot stitched during her day, looking fabulous... pattern from a magazine.

New Sue's latest project. It's going to be a wall hanging to be gifted.
There's a very quirky and fun reason for all those beautifully appliqu├ęd mugs...
Have you got a favourite?
Brenda came for her second class. She's been busy at home making more Disappearing 9-Patch blocks. They were originally to be made into a Mat and Ruler bag but there's a good chance it will become a lap quilt now.
Jean, along with Brenda, is making the Disappearing 9-Patch blocks. It is different fabric to her first class as she jolly well changed her mind on her choice last time... she's gone Bright!

Lovely Lyn cut lots of Piano Key pieces from her left over fabrics. She wanted a good random layout for the colours so decided not to sew longer strips...  there should just about be enough.

Gail, at the same time she's quilting the quilt above, started her next fun project. She wants to make a Bug Quilt. Ladybirds are always popular aren't they... so that's a good place to start. Lovely fabric choices eh...
