Stitching News

Farmer Lynda came to make her Harry Potter quilt sandwich.
There's a tunnel and Platform 9 3/4 on the back... I will show you that once the quilt is finished and ready for it's tooting fanfare. 

My Mum Gwynneth has been working on this Tula Pink Kit Quilt for a very long time. It's good to have a "Go To" project to work on in between other projects. This is English Paper Piecing, all stitched by hand. The kits not only includes the pre-cut fabrics... but all the papers are included too.

Nuttie has most of her Quilt-As-You-Go blocks stitched together in rows. Now comes the slightly more tricky task of lining up the apartment joining sashing strips as she joins the rows together... because Nuttie wants them all to line up. 

Jenny plans on making a few Bunting Cushions (starting with this one) adding her own words as the cushions will be gifted to family members... if she enjoys making them...  I'm not going to tell you how long it took us to get the letters the right way round!!!

Kate's Lynda is so happy with Quilt-As-You-Go (Stitch And Flip to some)  that she's decided, for the time being at least, that everything will be made with the same method. She's already completed a lovely little, very Pink Quilt... now there's a tote bag. toot toot toot Lynda, for your fabulous and finished project

Jean Hill didn't like the colours in this Jelly Roll. She thought there was too much red... Now though... with this particular pattern, colour placement and choice of borders, it's a lot more purple-y/lilac with just a hint of red... so she's happy. Toot toot toot Jean, a fabulous finish.
