Stitching News

Our lovely Peggy finished this fabulous kiddy play mat and instantly donated it. This one's going to The Linus Project. She loves to make little quilts and is very, very happy to know they will be loved by someone. Toot toot toot Peggy.
Fran Cupcake is making this beautiful, and quite tricky, quilt to donate to a local hospice. She has worked on the block units and those fiddly sashings for a lot of hours and now it's time to make the rows stitch to each other... You have to love quilt fudge!

New Sue worked on her Churndash blocks, they are quite large and easy to piece... After a little holiday over the pond she has a rough case of the dreaded jet lag... she probably doesn't even remember making all these blocks on Tuesday... So this is a little reminder for you Sue!

Princess Jackie's photo bombing Cockerels... I promised you a better picture last week and here it is... close your mouth!!! ha ha ha... arent they just fabulous! My goodness there's a lot of beautiful fabric being used for each one...Very pretty boys!!

Princess Jackie's almost finished, personalised cushion with the very cute bunnies...Lots of little. chunky French knots in a bunch make a very tactile little bunny tail. The base fabric is the wonderful Linen and Cotton blend from Moda... feels quite luxurious me thinks

Our Sheila had a lot of Batik fabric left over from her last quilt so I suggested she make Quarter Log Cabin blocks with them... "When you've made a pile of them Sheila, we will play with them and decide what to make," said I. Well, we did play and we decided to go on-point... haven't they turned out fabulous!!!

Brenda Barbara is almost done with her quilting on the two beautiful quilts she's been working on. Binding fabrics have been chosen and purchased so, I'm guessing there's a plan to stitch over the upcoming bank holiday weekend?

All blocks were quilted as she went...the blocks're joined apartment-ly to each other into rows... Check! Farmer Lynda is on the home straight!!..The rows are being joined apartment-ly too and they match up! by George she's got it... It will be a wonderful quilt now... not a chuffing one! ha ha ha
Margaret's Noah's Ark quilt, being made for little Noah with a Kids Quilt pattern... the quilting is coming along nicely and, as you can most probably see, more than half way done!

Have you had a go at making a Fiddle Quilt yet?...
This is one of Pam's... she's making a few and as she does she's thinking of lots of other bits and bobs that could be securely stitched on for twiddling and fiddling with... oh how we have laughed!!!
