Stitching News, With Tooting

More Pineapple Blossom blocks... boy have these cushions been popular.
16 x 6"blocks make a 24" cushion and I only made the first one to use up some scraps! How wonderful it is to inspire others to make your makes!
This beautiful batik cushion belongs to Queenie...

This is the fabulous back made using the left over strips and the Bonus HST's (Half Square Triangle) perfectly co-ordinated and beautifully quilted... there's a zip under that quilted flap too. It's fabulous and finished ! toot toot toot Queenie!

Keep your trumpets up for PM Pam. She also has a fabulous and finished cushion. Complete with a covered zip, these are four Attic Window blocks which Pam thoroughly enjoyed making with their mitred corners... toot toot toot Pam a 3D fanfare for your 3D cushion.

Rose purchased this pattern at the Festival of Quilts. Fran Cupcake made one first of all... a cunning plan as Fran was then able to teach Rose all the tricks she had learned as she worked out any queries or little misunderstandings... we all have those with new patterns eh.
It's a perfectly tootable project complete with lots of colourful zips.
I hope you can see, Rose has used a different lining for each pocket...
happy skippy joy every time a zip is opened!!!
Toot toot toot Rose, a fabulous finish... the first of many I hear.

Krafty Karen was inspired by Jean Bean's Blue Quilt... which was red actually... don't ask... it's the way our Jean Bean rolls!!! Anyway... if you want a quick quilt for the festive time... Sewing Prevention Season... this could be right up your street, border a festive themed fabric! Sandwich time for this one.

These are the tiny little Paper Pieced Log Cabin blocks that Rose was busy making before she set them to one side to she play with zippy pouches and scraps of fabric... she will get back to them soon.

PM Pam purchased this PDF pattern from The Red Boot Company
There are loads of patterns to choose from and they are all such fun.
I expect you will see a lot more of this project as Pam works through it.
