Catch Up...

Toot toot toot!.. Lynn's first fabulous and finished quilt.
Also, her first Jelly Roll project... with strips sewn together and then chopped up to make the very popular Rail Fence design. Appliqueing those little Festive squares to the border is a great idea!

Queen Jackie finished all 16 of her six inch Pineapple Blossom blocks, so that's the 24" cushion top ready for quilting. Jackie is piecing all of the Bonus HST (Half Square Triangles) for her cushion back... influenced by my very own thriftiness!

Princess Jackie had the luxury of empty tables for a change and used every one to help place the fabulous Hidden Wells blocks in the right order, which helped... mostly! ha ha ha

Jenny Bean wanted to learn how to make Cathedral Windows... They're very popular at the moment... So, as we offer great customer service, We helped her get to grips with just enough to make a cushion sized project. Everything is easy once you know how!

Susan had downloaded this bag pattern from T'Internet. There are some very tricky methods involved and unusual technics... it doesn't phase Susan though... she's quite a Smarty-Pants in the bag pattern department so all was fine. Toot toot toot Susan, It's a beautiful Batik, Fabulous Finish!

More tooting now for Luna Twirly...
A fabulous and finished gifting set of placemats with a co-ordinating table runner. Perfectly stitched with some quite quirky quilting designs... of course, now we all want to have a go!

Apologies for the rubbish photo quality here... there was sunshine ... really, sun was shining and it's bleached out the beautiful colours for Brenda Barbara's Batik and beautiful Pineapple Blossom cushion... It's a Fabulous and finished tootable 24" cushion.

The back of Brenda Barbara's cushion used up all of the Bonus Half Square Triangles and all of the left over strips... we love to play with left overs. Toot toot toot BB!

Wow... this is the back of Sporty Sue's Tripping Around The World quilt
She finally finished trippy quilting and got right down to trimming the crusts off... there are a lot of crusts on a whole world!!! A fabulous backing, no?

Christine also finished a little quilt top... Made from a Fat Quarter gift pack from Who knows where... this will be a lovely lap quilt once it's finished... Sandwich time now though. 

Susan made more Bendy Bags... I warn you... they are so much fun to make!! Those little Sweet Pea Pods are made from the two triangles we cut away in order to bend the zip... which is a very satisfying thing to do! Toot toot toot Susan, A fabulous zippy family!!!

Gail announced that she was stitching the last row of blocks to her huge quilt... much to her relief. Border decisions have been discussed and much pondering will be done ready for the next sewing session.
It's been a very time demanding week in my very own world, not just the fabulous Patchwork and Quilting world.
No apologies though... Life does go on... it is just a blog after all...
And I'm not even going to mention all the sewing supplies and fabrics that came to find it's very own way into my already full to bursting emporium!!! ha ha ha
