Uttoxeter Quilt Class

AJ (Angela that's not me) has been busy.. she finished this Christmas wall hanging that she started last week. She's done free motion quilting all over the background...good for her... we have to practice at every opportunity you know
Giggly Gillian has done enough quilting to stabilise this quilt so she was able to add the binding, she will get it all stitched down then decide whether to quilt around the centre squares or not... great light on her Bernina, don't you think?
Once Gillian finished the binding she started on a Christmas wall hanging, just like AJ's. The best thing about groups is how we all inspire each other to make things. Gillian didn't expect to like doing applique, but she did... she kept saying it out loud "ooooh I like this"
AJ stitched the binding on her wall hanging then set the hand stitching to one side for homework. She's making a table set, mats and table runner, all in lovely fabrics to match her dinner service... (my dinner service doesn't even match, let alone the mats! ha ha ha) I hope you see other things that co-ordinate in this photo?
It was raining , so Messy Maureen was able to join us again. She has all her strip sets complete. After trimming them up them up as best I could they are now ready to have the 4 inch sashing added.. Maureen might do that at home, she's going to dig in her box of goodies for the right fabrics.
Jenni was with us too, she's working on her Chunky Churndash blocks, they are looking really good, hot orange colours... fabulous.
We will meet again next week , it will be August 3rd, nearly Christmas! he he he
