Stitching News

Fran Cupcake's Dog In Sweater, another pattern from the popular Elizabeth Hartman designs Isn't he a smart fellow!! Fran might have almost (not quite) bitten off the end of her tongue makine him but she loves him now! 

Wooly Woven fabric feels so warm and soft and luxurious but can be very tricky to patchwork with... so why not complicate your job by working with curves and bias joining??!! That's what Queen Jacquie did...
Wow! what a fabulous and finished triumph it is!

Even circular quilting to enhance the shapes... The light blobs are on my camera lense not the quilt! Toot toot toot-etty-toot Queenie, you did a great job and your knees may never be cold again.

Keep your trumpets up... Toot toot toot again for our Queenie... another fabulous and finished project. This one a wall hanging made of beautiful Batik fabrics... Jacquie has plans to make this one again.

And one more toot toot fanfare with Queenie... for a third fabulous and finished quilt. This one was started a while ago and is full of sentiment and memories, Queen Jacquie is so happy to have it finished.

A lovely cushion all finished and fabulous... Toot toot toot!
Gail has made two of them, complete with "hidden under flap" zips.
That tiny red inner border looks great doesn't it!

A big reveal now... Baby came and now that baby received his special quilt, you get to see it too. It's been kept off limits for you ready for the big day... as the big day came 4 weeks early, Jean Bean had a bit of a race on... just the way she likes it! An absolutely wonderful quilt made with so much thought, love and happiness...

New baby is Leo,  very lucky as that's what Jean put on the back... ha ha ha
I've got evidence that baby Leo can roar like a lion too.
Toot toot toot Jean Bean... A an absolutely fabulous and finished quilt.

PM Pam is using her pattern to make a few blocks to turn into cushions, to see whether she might make a whole quilt in the future. She's having fun choosing all the beautiful Batiks...

Fran Cupcake started another Dog In Sweater block and tried really hard not to mix up all the bits this time, she needs the end of her tongue!... Labels have their place, everything needs a label .... Ask Fran! The quilt will be adora-bubble x
