Stitching News

Lets start with a toot toot toot fanfare for this absolutely fab-u-lous and finished 24" cushion made by Chrystal... The extremely popular Pineapple Blossom design in wonderful bright and burnt oranges... wait for the back...

Wow! It's like a completely different project... with only the addition of that lovely sashing fabric all of these bits were bonus leftovers from making the front, a totally toot-a-bubble B side... actually, this cushion is a double A side project. There's a zip under that there middle sashing strip.

No shocker to know that the ladies continue making Pineapple Blossom blocks... they are infectious, each time someone starts new blocks they must tag another person to get started... colours are so inspiring! These blocks belong to Farmer Lynda, and it's her second cushion, ha... I rest my case.

Brenda Barbara is making a kiddie gifting quilt and she decided to use an On-Point setting with sashing and corner stones. She's very happy with the progress so far. On-Point setting needs a little extra concentration really... it's not hard it just looks weird until it is done!!

Beryl is so pleased with her lap quilt that she has decided to keep it all for her very own self... and who can blame her? She loves red colours so really... it was inevitable. The quilting is almost complete, just something simple to do in the borders I think.

Chrystal had been researching on T'Internet, you know... hours and hours of looking at quilt related pictures.. do you do it? I do. Anyway she sketched out her new project and arrived for class feeling enthusiastic and with her project plan... applique time!
