Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Jenni spent the day cutting out all the pieces to make this quilt, Catch a Spinning Star. The pieces are very small and there are lots of them... it's too late to turn back now so Jenni is rising to the challange.

Giggly Gillian has quilted all four quarters of her project and we did succeed in joining them together. There's quite a lot of hand stitching to be done as homework now... borders next time?
Messy Maureen joined us for the day, she finished off her Advent calendar and had even thought of covering a coat hanger with Christmas ribbon, to hang it from.
Once that was finished she decided to make one of the Applique Christmas tree wall hangings that have been so popular with the ladies, she is a rebel though... Messy Maureen is using dusky pink and minty green... !
AJ (Angela that's not me) finished quilting one half of her Pineapple Blossom quilt and made a good start on the secnd half, she will also add borders using the Apartment quilting method.
This is one of Lizzy's heart blocks, number six actually, and she was so chuffed as every bit was "spot on, perfect!", seam allowances only need to be one thread too big or too small for things not to match up perfectly and she was determined not to be beaten by these blocks... Well worth the effort!

I'm going to a lecture on 'The History Of Linen' at Caverswall Village Hall on Tuesday 16th November at 2pm, so there will not be a meeting on that date but we will meet for Quilt Class on the 9th & 23rd November.
