Stitching News

Monday Sheila's been watching Susan make her lovely Daisy wall hanging and she decided to make a version of her very own. Jean Bean helped by drawing a great petal shape for Sheilas' applique... this though, will be a table runner... Lovely eh! 

PM Pam continues with her gifting quilt marathon. This baby play mat is on the finishing lap with the binding now on and ready for hand stitching at home.

Tuesday Rose has done lots of quilting on this project already but there were a few areas where quilting was sparse... Chaco marker in hand... Rose will soon have that rectified, tortoise shell markings will be stitched!

New Sue finished piecing her beautiful Batik table runner. She's been able to dig in her batik scraps for lots of those little squares for the 9-Patch units.

We had sunshine!! Brenda Barbara made her lovely Pineapple Blossom quilt sandwich with the beautiful sunshine blazing through the window... A very happy and warm sandwich, not quite toasted!

Christal made loads of HST's (Half Square Triangles) with a Charm Pack she had purchased, elsewhere! We played around with various settings and this on-point was the winner. A lap quilt sized project is required so it will be perfect, with the addition of setting triangles.

Margaret is back at it. This quilt just needed a little more quilting and then the binding. Margaret always machine stitches her bindings so she's a bit of an expert.

Enid finished the blanket stitching on her beautiful Batik petals and flowers so she's ready to decide what to do with the block... Probably a cushion, we love a great cushion!!

Mrs. P wanted to come to the beginner cushion day, but it was fully booked so we slotted her into a daily class. She isn't really a beginner, she wanted to go back to basics to perfect her new skill. Success eh... what a fabulous back to basics cushion front!!
