Stitching News

Kate finished this big and beautiful quilt top, it's one of her gifting projects. She's decided to have it professionally done by a Long Arm Quilter. So the day was spent piecing a fabulous and co-ordinating backing.

Monday Sheila arrived with two Layer Cakes and a plan to make a gifting quilt in a hurry... she didn't want complicated. We laid out the 10" squares to get a good mix and before we knew it... it was border time... Sheila sews fast!! The blocks didn't stay in the right order... but do they ever!!

Lou Lou finished her second baby gifting quilt top and was able to make a little sandwich. This quilt has become a priority now as Baby arrived already... It just needs simply quilting, no need to complicate matters.

Monday Sheila finished two quilt tops. The layer cake one above and this baby play mat sized one... So now she has two sandwiches to make and get quilted... if she hasn't finished them already that is! 5 strips of fabric to a quilt top... Lick-etty-split!

Toot toot toot time.... Annbacan finished her fabulous festive table runner... I hope you get an idea of how long it is from this picture?  It's been embellished with little doo-dads too. Made for a giant table and I'm sure it will look great.

Gail added a few more quilted shapes and just has the ends to tie of and thread through before we can toot for this lovely little gifting quilt. It's a perfect baby play mat size... 

Rose finished her cushion front... have a closer look if you can, she's added a few wonderful little hand stitched details using a lovely grey Presencia Perle cotton, size 8... my favourite!

New Sue has finished her quilt top too, it's going to be a wall hanging. She used beautiful Batik fabrics for both background and flowers, always a winner. So, that's another sandwich needed... Sue's booked in for our next Sandwich Saturday but there's a holiday to survive first!

Taa-daaa, PM Pam also finished a quilt top. This was one of the projects Pam was working on during our wonderful Westhope retreat recently. Bright and beautiful Batiks... such a happy project. Pam's going to make a spectacular backing with the leftovers.
