Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Lizzie brought in her sampler sofa throw and announced that it was finished... I asked whether she was sure and she immediately said... " Well, no... I haven't put a label on it"... with a huge smile on her face, what a rebel!
Jenni used the wonderful number 4 stitch, with the length set at 2.5, on her Bernina Baby to quilt the borders of her wall hanging, added the binding and set it to one side to be hand stitched at home.
This quilt is Lizzie's too, Ohio Stars, the pattern looks different because of the placement of the fabrics and not having any sashing to separate the blocks... secondary patterns are quite amazing, especially when they are a surprise!
This is Lizzie's next project... a quilt made from the most sumptuous red heart blocks, it's going to be a lap quilt for her daughter. I shall tell you that Jenni loved the red so much that she is making her next project with the same fabric, it's a Moda from the Table Top Shop.
Giggly Gillian did a little bit of machine quilting then decided she was so excited to get all of her four quarters completed that she stopped to sandwich the other three. We won't meet next week so she has two weeks to complete them, let's see...

Pat came with her embroidered cloths and tea tray covers. They are all cut up now so we were able to place them out... She's not too keen on using the rotary cutter so we have decided that it's best to stitch them together by hand following drawn lines, she has a lot of homework!
This is a piece of cross stitch that is being included. Remember to wear your smile and you can help dress everyone else... smiles are quite infectious and I (almost) always wear mine!

So, as I said earlier in the post, we are not meeting next week 26th October... We will be into NOVEMBER when we have the next class, it's time to start tucking your vest into your knickers again... brrrrrrrrrrrrr! he he he
