Stitching News

Carol finished this wonderful quilt top. The applique is a mixture of Moda Flannels and regular cottons plus there are lot's of embroidered embellishments to boot... makes it a very tactile project. The backing has been chosen and a sandwich making session is iminent.

Just for a quick fix... Carol decided to make a Bendy Bag with her pastel Kaffe... and a little zipper pouch made from the left over Bendy Bag triangles... That will only make sense if you've had the pleasure of making a Bendy Bag for your very own self. Toot toot toot Carol two very fast and fabulous finishes

What a palava it was to get this picture. Monday Sheila is making new festive cushions to keep for her very own self... for a rare change!! She wanted to show you the back and the front of the cushions at the very same time... Poor Longport Lynda's hair was all messed up when Sheila nearly fell on top of her... Laugh, oh yes we did! Anyway, toot toot toot Sheila, fabulous and finished and festive.

PM Pam finished yet another quilt. All those Half Square Triangles (HST's) were given to her... they are someone's left over, cut off bits!!! I know... some people throw good stuff out... how very wasteful... of course... not if you know a keen scrappy quilter... like our Pam!! Toot toot toot Pam another fabulous and finished gifting quilt.

An arty-farty picture of Longport Lynda's piles. 12" blocks all in the process of being individually quilted ready for apartment joining, probably whilst we are away on our upcoming retreat. Have I mentioned that to you??? ha ha

Princess Jackie had made lots of Flying Geese units for her borders and she decided to use them side by side, making the chevron pattern... do the colours remind you of those Rhubarb and Custard sweets we used to get years ago?? Well now... would you believe it... we can still buy them now... I just looked on Google... yum

All Day Di finished her quilting on this William Morris gifting quilt , made up her binding and got it all stitched on, it's now ready for hand sewing whilst away on our retreat... she has lots of projects to take, as do most of us.
