Stitching News

Rose purchased two Moda Charm packs to make this quilt top. The red flange and border fabrics, obviously, were extra yardage... it's a great size and is ready to be given the sandwich treatment... such lovely, rich colours.
This is a project that New Sue was working on during our retreat. The tiny blocks are used to make a cushion from the new Jen Kingwell book Quilt Lovely
This is one of the quilt tops that Rose made during our quilt retreat... she did more work than anyone it seems!... and she chatted away like the rest of us... she must be able to multi-task!!
This is another of Rose's accomplishments... isn't this lovely. No surprise when I tell you that it's another Jen Kingwell pattern. I have ordered more as everyone wanted the pattern when they heard about this quilt Rose made, I sold out!
Early Crafty Sue made this quilt top back when Noah was a lad...
and now, finally... it's being quilted! I think Sue found her mojo!
Giggly Gillian sandwiched one quarter of her gifting quilt. Each quarter will be quilted separately then they will be joined together with sashing, Apartmently!
Princess Jackie, our first prize winning applique-er, has decided to piece.. she wanted to make sure that she didn't lose her patchworking skills, she hasn't! There will be applique added soon enough. How lovely and bright!

Gail persevered with the tiny details until every Santa was holding hands... It was a fiddle but, I think you will agree, that it was all worth it... how cute are those Santas!!!

Christabelle's daughter had been gifted this face towel/flannel from Japan. She didn't want to use it as such and spoil it so Chris added a little Art Gallery fabric and made it into a cushion... what a great idea!

These are Christmas Card holders,
There's a workshop on Saturday 11th with Jenny Barlaston and we have space now, due to a cancellation...
Where do you put your cards... I bet you could use such a great idea...
