Stitching News

Let's start with raised fanfare trumpets for Gail's fabulous and finished, found in the garage quilt... toot toot toot! The pattern is from one of the many Jelly Roll books, one that's been around for quite a while, I think it's the sampler one. If you can zoom in a bit you will see that Gail finished off this lovely quilt with a Faux Piped Binding... it's just a perfect finish!

Oh No... here she goes again... Found in the garage quilt top number 2!! Actually, Gail moved house twice during the making of the quilt tops... that's why they were packed up and almost forgotten about... Anyway, life happens eh... at least she's finishing them now.

New Sue and my very good self spent hours mathemising two border strips for this quilt, one for the top and one for the bottom... we eventually had success and they were stitched on... When Sue got home she popped the quilt top onto the bed only to realise that it was much too long, so... she unpicked the two borders!! Blimey, that could have been a waste of time BUT...No, the back of this quilt will be fabulous!

New Sue must be enjoying the Elizabeth Hartman patterns as she is making her way through them all, I think. These Bunnies have all been made with Moda's Grunge fabrics... have you seen just how many wonderful colours are available now??? We love them.
