Stitching News

Monday Sheila finished her Liberated Hidden Wells quilt top. She used Festive themed fabrics and it turned out great. Such a clever method... but you do have to use your 'noggin'. (or little pieces of paper to label as you go... if you can't find your 'Noggin') We have a workshop coming soon for this design... it will be on Saturday 18th February

I've shared many, many Top Tips with Just Edna while she's been making the units for her Double Wedding Ring quilt. Together we have worked out a few tricky piecing dilemmas... oh it is coming along a treat now... guess what? After a million years of Not wanting to ever, ever make a Double Wedding Ring quilt.... I had to put one on my to do list!!! 

Monday Sheila wanted a Nautical Table Runner. We make this design with Charm Packs quite often... you must have seen a few examples recently as I have posted pictures for you... Sheila cut her squares from Meterage (yardage) It's a very, very long table!! Photo bombed by Jean Bean's impatient hands wanting to use the iron!! She is on a creative roll and just couldn't wait for us to fiddle-y-faff about, ha ha ha

Janet slid down our slippery slope... we must welcome her to the 'dark side'... this fun and creative place that we love... She has treated her very own self to a new Juki, DX7... such a fabulous machine... so now she can sew at home too! She's quilting her beginner cushion project as the first job.

Annbacan is making a family quilt. Members of her family have been asked to draw around a hand and to send it to her... she traces them and uses sticky stuff to applique them to the background blocks... more on this as it happens... what a lovely idea though.

Lady Judith is making six inch Pineapple Blossom blocks. She needs 16 in total to make the 24" cushion... the one that is displayed in my very own shop... Judith is using this absolutely beautiful Poppy fabric... new in my shop... it's from Moda
I do hope you are impressed by the shear quantity of pictures in this post... ha ha ha... not to mention that I blogged for a few days in a row!!! What's going on eh....
