Uttoxeter Quilt Group

Messy Maureen excelled herself. She sandwiched and quilted all 5 of her 17" blocks and then used her decorative stitches to embellish the borders. She was very quiet and smiling through the whole process, sporting her new glasses she was able to get really straight lines and didn't need to rip out anything all day!!! woooohoooo for the new glasses I say! he he he
AJ (Angela that's not me) added inner and outer borders, prepared the backing, made a sandwich and started the quilting on her rail fence table runner... she even decided that she likes it now!, thank goodness for that, I think it is wonderful.
This is Shirley Lerly's project. It's going to be a luxurious pillow on her guest bed. We added corner stones to the borders so that the stripes could all go in the same direction. Lerly would have started her quilting if I had remembered to take her batting/wadding... duh!
Gillian joined us after lunch, she has decided to use big stitch quilting on her log cabin quilt, it looks great with all those animal prints. The race is on though, this quilt has a deadline for delivery... sore fingers coming up!
Jenny came too, she was free motion quilting her mat bag, which is coming along nicely.
We meet again next Tuesday 6th April, it's another full meeting so no places left, sorry.... feel free to pop in to see what we are doing though, we're always happy to have visitors!
