Stitching News

 Judy sent this photo of her quilted runner. Isn't it fabulous! 

This was her first project with curved piecing and she was determined to get it all accurate. There are quite a few methods you can use to get lovely smooth curves and after trying most of them, Judy decided she like my way! whoop whoop for me eh! Finished off with a splendid facing treatment rather than binding, it's a totally toot toot-a-bubble, fabulous finish!

I know this quilt picture is sideways on. When you have little people holding quilts up, it's much easier this way, ha! It's Shirley's Fabulous and finished Autumnal Leaves, pattern from a Jelly Roll book, complete with Faux Pipped Binding. Toot toot toot Shirley

This is the back of Shirley's quilt with the ladies stretched up high. 
It's much more purple-y than it looks on my photo. 
We do love to make an interesting pieced backing.

Judy has taken delivery of this huge quilt, fresh from Amanda in Stone. It really is a whopper, which is why Judy chose to employ Amanda in the first pace, a no brainer really. We measured up for the binding, that's the next job

This is the back, like I said, we do love a pieced backing and this one was made using lots of left over pieces. Don't you love that pink spot! We can give a gentle toot toot for Judy, it's only needing binding but we won't be seeing this quilt again for the grander Fabulous and Finished tooting.

Please remember that, after today, my shop will be closed until Tuesday, unless you make a shopping appointment on Saturday afternoon, like some folk already have!
