Caverswall Quilt Cave

Dotty Maureen's Show & Tell... she took the '10 Minute Block' to another level.... she started off with strips of fabrics and made blocks from them before doing the "Middle-Fiddle-Twiddle" Jenni Rayment will be pleased with that description I bet you! What a great effect it created...
Dotty spent her day making this paper pieced mouse. It will be a gift for someone in our Wednesday group so I can't say any more without spoiling the surprise...
A new baby came to class... a Bernina Aurora 430... Brenda Barbara is the proud new owner/Mum for this beauty. The 430 is pretty much the same as the 440 QE but with different feet and no BRS, no point in paying for a BSR if you won't use it is there....
This is what Brenda Barbara was working on, she's very impressed with the Bernina seam ripper!! ha ha ha, she was so excited about her new machine that she couldn't concentrate on what she was sewing, hence her use of the handy little gadget... she got there in the end though and this table centre was ready to be sandwiched and quilted... on the new baby of course!!!

Barbie started working on a new project, she wanted to have something to work on while we can't meet in our lovely hall. You might have spotted that it will be a stunning Lilly's Colours quilt... always popular.
Joan The Shop is free motion quilting all the daizies, she left with only the ones in the borders to do so she's on track to have it ready for Christmas, especially as we're been treated to more "Snow Day Sew Days!

Helen worked on the final quilty bits of her black and white quilt but I didn't get a good picture of it, what I can show you though... taa daaaaaa..... Helen finished quilting Foxy Margaret's cat quilt, she did a great job on it.. We trimmed it up and Dotty Maureen went, after class, to deliver it to Margaret, who, I'm sure, will be chuffed to bits!
We're all watching the weather, lots of snow is predicted but... if we can get there, we'll have our last quilty meeting of the year in Caverswall Village Hall, next Wednesday, 22nd December 10am - 3pm and you are all very welcome to join us for a day of stitchy fun. Kettle Corner will have lots of goodies to savour with your chosen cuppa. See you there???
