Stitching News With Tooting

PM Pam finished her gifting quilt for the little tiddler belonging to the Ashbourne footballing family, I bet they will love this play mat style and size of quilt. Little footballs quilted in the green football print fabric, goalpost netting represented in the black strips... it has it all..

And Pam appliqued "Up'ard" so there's no mistaking this family for "Down'ards"!!! he he he.. An absolutely fabulous finish with such a fun story... Toot toot toot Pam.

Janet is a new addition to our quilting family... This is one side of her beginner cushion, beautifully quilted on her very own and brand new Juki

And this is the back with a zip installed with my super easy method... under that there flap. Brilliant... toot toot toot Janet for your fabulous and finished project.

LouLou found her very own self feeling quite inspired by Rose's heart cushion, the one in the previous post. Lick-etty-split the fabric was chosen, the designing was decided and all this stitching was done in the one class... just to sandwich and quilt the cushion front now... the zip is there in the back already for a speedy finish.

Margaret spent her class time quilting wavy lines on her Winnie The Pooh quilt. She had drawn lines to follow as it's a long way across a quilt when you stitch it diagonally, have you noticed that? I guess it's the math of it all but the length of the diagonal always amazes me.

Just Edna continued with her Double Wedding Ring arcs... she has the system well sorted now. The Add-A-Quarter Ruler is a brilliant tool... especially when you stick it to a piece of cardboard... Do you know about that method? We love it.

Oh my goodness... how lovely Rose's Hares are looking... she's carefully choosing just the perfect colour of thread, often variegated and mostly King Tut (I have every colour availabubble in my very own shop you know) for each piece of Batik fabric and all that extra effort is really paying off.

PM Pam wanted to start something new... But What? hmmmm
Spring is just around the corner and quite a few projects are flower based in my classroom at the moment... Pam joined the Spring-iness and started these fabulous flower applique blocks

I told you... Spring-iness is in the air!
I posted this pattern on my Facebook page very recently... The Tuesday ladies decided to make it as a group project but New Sue got all excited and made a speedy start on it... all the Half Square Triangles are made and these appliques are well on the way.... isn't it wonderful to feel so excited about a project!
