Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Another very productive day full of laughter. This is a very small group these days but boy do we enjoy it! Lizzy continued to work on her Economy Patch blocks... why on earth this block is called "Economy Patch" escapes me... it's lovely, it uses the same amount of fabric as any other block and it has some tricky piecing to get all the triangles 'dead centre'... Economy? As you can see it looks great so far. You can just make out Jenni rather engrossed in her blocks, all the hour glass bits are done now so she is able to start putting the full blocks together.
Messy Maureen joined us again.... she decided to have another go at free motion quilting... now that's what I like, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again... and it paid off.. there's curly wurly, hoopy-loopy's all over the cushions now...
Giggly Gillian is back from her travels in the USA. This quilt was supposed to have been finished for Christmas but with the snow forcing us to cancel a few lessons and a last minute illness, those ideas were scuppered. Now it can be finished before September... plenty of time? Actually Gillian only needs to add the borders and it's done.... I have to tell you... this picture doesn't even begin to show how lovely this quilt is, the colours are much richer and the sashing is richer, the corner stones are brighter... it is a truly stunning quilt!
We meet again on Tuesday 1st February, 10am - 3pm.
