Caverswall Quilt Cave

Irene was able to make her quilt sandwich, this quilt top was made using the Railfence blocks and is Irene's very own design... it's her quilt so she can please her very own self!

She was a little cross that she had forgotten to bring her backing fabric, luckily she found a perfect piece for the job at the Table Top Shop... fluffy clouds so snuggle up to?

Wendy was very arty farty this week... my goodness what a fiddle, she's working on a "Triptych Wall Hanging" (I had to look it up 'Triptych' I never heard the word before, I think it means art in three panels)

she used lots of methods including Seminole, foundation piecing and curved lines...ooooooooooo curves! She's using lovely bright colours.

Foxy Margaret had a little fight with her machine whilst trying to quilt her four strip Railfence... not a problem as a Bernina Aurora 440 QE stepped up to help out...

Laura has a half-term holiday from school and was very keen to get her Railfence Table runner finished. She did the final lines of quilting, trimmed up and added the binding.

Gilly's made all of her half square triangles now... after a gathering of ladies to help decide on placement of colours she set to with piecing them all together.

Helen had a few blocks left over from the top of her quilt... so we pieced them together to add a little interest to the back.. love it!in no time at all, a sandwich was made. (Happy Birthday to youooooo, tis Helen's Happy Birthday today!)

Annie not only made a sandwich but she almost finished quilting the whole lap quilt in the one session. Annie is totally addicted to this patchwork and quilting thing that we all love so much... I would like to officially welcome her to "The Dark Side" ha ha ha

We meet again on Friday 29th October. There should be lots of spare tables because it is the weekend of the Malvern Quilt Show and lots of my ladies will be there.
Kettle Corner might be a little lonely this week.
