Stitching News

Gail move house last year... and that means losing things in boxes!! Recently, while looking for something, Gail found this rather fabulous quilt top with one of the outer borders not stitched on... You know, she has absolutely no idea why she stopped at the last border... no matter now, the border is on and the top is ready to be sandwiched, and quilted.

Sister Susie has decided to do all of the applique using Blanket Stitch with black thread... it looks really good. She's using a 60 weight Presencia black so it's nice and fine and not overpowering the fabulous design. 

All Day Di came with a pile of fabrics from her stash. she wants to make a bed runner with a co-ordinating wall hanging. This design for the bed runner, is a free pattern from the Moda Bake Shop is a great introduction to the Bargello technique so if Di enjoys this process she will/might make a Bargello Wall Hanging. 

Enid couldn't wait to get started on a new Applique project. She stopped off at my bookshelf, chose this amazing book, a piece of beautiful, multi colored Batik fabric and had lots of fun for the rest of the day

This table runner is being made for Christmas... the one that just finished! ha ha ha How many of us can confess to that conundrum... no matter, it's almost finished. Chris bagged it out so there's just a bit of quilting to be done... no binding needed.

Lorna purchased my last I Spy Six Pack a few days ago and came in to make a sandwich rather Lick-etty-Split. That's the beauty of purchasing a Six Pack... most of the work is already dome for you. I have already started cutting more Eye Spy Six Packs... they take ages!!!
