Stitching News

Trumpets raised please for a fabulous and finished fanfare for Cheryl Cheryl

What an amazing project she made. 
A New York Beauty, or better still,  A New York Batik Beauty. 
My photos don't show how truly lovely this quilt is. 

Obviously you must be able to see that it's huge and I couldn't get it all in focus. When this quilt was started, I thought it a tricky task to choose pastel Batiks as most are big bold colours and patterns, but Cheryl has done exactly that. Pops of gentle colours with none overpowering the others, just lovely. It's her first dabble into foundation paper piecing and it wont be the last.

Cheryl quilted this all by her very own self and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of free motion quilting on such a busy design, you can't go wrong really can you. Toot toot toot Cheryl, a fabulous and finished Batik Beauty and well done for gifting it already, many of us wouldn't have been able to do that, ha ha!

Norma finished her latest gifting quilt top. It's been made using only scraps and left over fabrics so she is very please with that. Usually Norma sends her quilts to Amanda in Stone for quilting but she's going to tackle this one all by her very own self, well it is a quarter of the size of her usual quilts.

Di was very happy to be able to say that she only has the binding left to hand stitch down to the back, which is a job she very much enjoys doing. What a beautiful gifting quilt perfect for a friend who loves flowers. It's almost toot-toot-able, but not quite yet. I hope we get to see it finished before it is gifted.
