Stitching News

There's a workshop coming soon for the Hidden Wells quilt.
Some ladies wanted to make it at a more steady pace so they're doing it in weekly classes. These are Monday Sheila's Hidden Wells blocks. She chose fabulous Festive fabrics and we're all loving the results so far.

Lady Judith got the last of her borders stitched on to this Jelly Roll quilt top... So she's ready to make her sandwich and to quilt it... but she purchased the fabrics for a Hidden Wells project instead... she chose luscious and beautiful Batiks... oh no... now I want to make a Batik one too!

Judy is a relatively new addict. She made two of the beginner cushions. Then made a Half Square Triangle cushion and as the last stitch went into that project (toot toot toot!) she swooped around the fabrics in Christmas Corner (Yes I made a Christmas Corner!!) choosing her Festive Tree Skirt fabric

Princess Jackie, our 1st prize winning applique-er, has done it again!! Wow is this ever beautiful. From the book Happy Quilts, a fantastic book.. it's got so many fabulous quilts and projects.. worth every penny or dollar to purchase!!!

Rose's Hare Quilt blocks are coming along nicely... the main blocks are about done and, in her usual style... Rose is winging it for the filler blocks and strips... she only just started that process and it's looking very exciting so far.

Queen Jacquie has been working on this project, amongst others, for a short while... during her last push to get it done... she realised she was short of 6" of the Bias Binding tape, the one that's fusible and expensive from Clover... would she need to purchase 10 more metres just to finish it? What a 'Cliffhanger'!!

Jean Bean managed to sit at her machine for short periods of time too. All of the centre stitching lines are complete so this project is on the home straight. Jean Bean's binding is already made... she likes to do that job quite early in the process.
