Stitching News

Just Edna's fabulous and finished quilt ready for a toot toot toot fanfare... I remember Edna purchasing these fabrics quite a few years ago. I remember her starting the patchwork all those years ago too... it's a good job, very well done... eventually, not every project needs to be a quick finish!!

Just Edna pieced the backing to co-ordinate with the front, even to using the last little patches of the favourite fabric, the quilting has followed the patchwork design. Toot toot toot Edna.

LouLou, who used to only love neutral coloured projects, declared her love for beautiful and bright Batik fabrics... and no wonder... what a fabulous fishy quilt top she's made... it's from the Happy Quilts book. Just a few border blocks to do.

Carol added a few finishing touches to her tree... then she made a start blanket stitching on all the details. She fussily cut the fabrics for the dragonfly wings and the owl eyes... had you noticed?

Just Edna is making a beautiful Batik bed runner  and hopes it will be finished in time for gifting... I'm pretty sure it will be as all 4 blocks were almost complete by the end of class. This design is from a magazine. It uses lots of Half Square Triangles and Hour Glass blocks... though, in my very own opinion, it would have been very much easier to have pieced mostly rectangles!! Do you see the rectangles?
