Stitching News

Kate's making giant Melon Peel blocks... 108 needed for this giant gifting project... we came up with a rather cunning way to save sticky stuff waste... only the edged need to be stuck down you see, we haven't cut the middles out... top secret thriftiness?

 Lynda had a photo of a quilt she wanted to make, also for gifting. It was a good starting point.... Got to love a picture! We played with cutting mathemisms until all was good with the block sizing... one block done 11 to go.

Brenda Barbara had lots of blocks completed so we had a review.
Pineapple Blossom blocks are fun to play with... like log Cabin blocks are.
Changing block directions gives different secondary patterns

After much playing and pondering this is the design Brenda chose.

My Mum Gwynneth hasn't made a quilt for ages. Spring has sprung and new curtains have been purchased so a new quilt was needed to complete the new, light and bright look. Railfence blocks... always a winner... especially in Beautiful Batiks...
Did I mention that 12 more beautiful Batik bolts arrived in my shop!!!
