Stitching News

 Wooops, long time no see, Where do the days go?

Let's start with Toot toot toot fanfare for Norma's fabulous and finished gifting quilt. She machine stitched the binding and managed to get it all hand stitched down before the end of class. She's very pleased with this quilt and she will be gifting it this week to a very special friend.

Norma had an hour or so left so she continued with the 16-Patch units that will make up the centre of her scrappy blocks. This will be an ongoing project for a while. It's good to have a 'No Rush' scrappy project to turn to.

Carol almost finished the first of her Cubes. The pattern is from ByAnnie, Room With A View such a cool idea and very "Want-a-bubble" Carol plans to make a set of all three cubes.

Sheila has been keeping an eye on carol so has now started her Rooms With A View cubes. There are, as usual, lots of bits to be prepared before assembly.

Not a toot toot but a huge Whooop Whooop now, Our Beano actually got her quilt top completed!! The back has been prepared too and the sandwich making session is booked for this coming Saturday, amazingly productive lady... for a change!

This quilt, inspired by a Cross Stitch pattern, was made by a customer who came to my shop almost skipping with excitement to show it to us all. She has hand pieced it and then embellished it using her sewing machine. Look closely! It's made up of 1" cut squares!!! stitched together by hand sewing needle and thread. They are all half inch finished and this is not her first quilt made this way... Toot toot toot for a fabulous and finished, tiny piecing cutie

More later... hopefully not too much later....
