Caverswall Quilt Cave, part 3

Foxy Margaret has been working on her Mat & Ruler bag at home, as you see here, she's quilted it and added pockets. She stitched the handles on and almost go to finish it, but she wants to use her over locker (serger) on the edges, so it was set on one side and a new project was started... a Quick Table Topper... wow have they been popular!
Shirley Lerly continued to make hour glass blocks from her absolutely delicious new fabrics. It's a pattern from one of Kaffe Fassett's books, actually I think she has them all done now... we'll see next time eh...
Wendy is making this project using apartment quilting. She's quilting one row at a time then she'll get them stitched together with sashing.... 1 1/8" on the top and 1 3/4 on the back... I think
Inspired by Chris' poinsettia quilting last week, Wendy took the plunge... she looked at a drawing of candles whilst doing free motion... useful multi-tasking eh!!
It reminds me a bit of those things we used to have.. I might lose you here, try to keep up.... I had one and I can't remember the name, it was a frame, mine was red, both ends had a pencil and as I traced off a small character, like say, Mickey Mouse, it would draw a large Mickey Mouse on a paper at the side ... do any of you know what I am talking about? Mum?
Lizi started her first ever quilt project also using scrumptious fabrics, well she is slightly influenced by her Mum, Shirley Lerly
It's also from the Kaffe book but all in Lizzy's own colour choices. She spent the day ironing and cutting so, next time... she gets to sew!
This is an interesting project. Arty Beryl was given some fabrics, this one was white silk, which she dyed with these beautiful colours. She cut out an interesting shape and decided to free motion quilt all over it... I wonder what it will be made into?
Speaking of sewing... there has been a new arrival in the group, Chris very proudly, took delivery of her very own, brand new Bernina Aurora baby. She put it through it's paces all day, changing feet and tensions and threads and even made a bobbin... Mother and baby have bonded ever so well! ha ha ha
Irene made the tops for two Cat Mats, lucky cats eh! These Jelly Roll strips were sewn together is no time at all. The backing fabric is covered in fish... I suspect the kitties might prefer to lie on the back looking at those delicious fish eh! he he he
oh I must show you these finished projects too. Arty Beryl made this Crazy Quilt with just about every type of fabric on the planet..... You can't actually see this 3D effect on the real quilt yet it is so obvious in the picture... interesting.. she also made these aprons out of the Bargello she was working on last week...One for Grandma and one for grand daughter, how cute are they!!!
We meet again Tomorrow, Friday 26th November, 10 am - 3pm and even more fabrics arrived today so they will be there for your perusal as you visit our Kettle Corner, that's only if you want to of course.

That's it for this time, 3 posts from one meeting and I havent even shown you what Gilly, Mum (Gwynneth) and Dotty were doing..... sorry ladies!
