Caverswall Quilt Cave

Gilly's never ending blocks are done, finished and fabulous... sashing in place, inner border strips and big borders strips have been cut to size... all is looking good for a Tuesday finish! The wadding has been measured ready for the sandwich.... so I'm an optimist but Gilly's working around the clock on this now... I can hear it ticking!
Dotty Maureen has decided to do apartment quilting on this project so she has lots of little sandwiches ready to be quilted.. goodness knows how she is following her design sheet, every block is different with different colours that have to be linked
What a lovely job Helen is doing on this project, we were oooooing and ahhhing over it, it looks so special with the colours she's chosen, she's very pleased with it too... at the end of the day, that's all that matters eh.
Kate's quilt is done, here she's adding the 2 1/2" binding by machine and she'll stitch the back side by hand, it's a beautiful quilt... remember? it's the one that inspired Wednesday Wendy....
Lynda completed enough piano keys strips and was able to add them to her black and white top, she's been working on this quilt for over two years and now the end of the fist phase is getting closer, of course there's the quilting to do... no rush though.
Shirley Lerly has made over 80 Flying Geese blocks ready to make the Saw Tooth Star blocks, each block needs 4 geese so, actually that must be 96 she's made... lovely and bright ready for spring... tis nearly spring have you seen the evidence... crocus and snowdrops and stems of daffodils... very exiting...
My Mum (Gwynneth) came today ready to hand stitch her Cathedral Window bits on her 10 minute block quilt but I had another plan for her time... I found a great pattern in a magazine and I don't have time to do it.... not right now anyway... I can't wait to see how it looks so Mum started it for me... for her too of course, if she likes it when it's done, you will get to see the progress soon enough.

We meet again on Wednesday 23rd and Friday 25th February 10am - 3pm and we're sure to have a spare table if you would like to join us.
New fabrics and threads have arrived on the Table Top Shop and 3 kinds of waddings are always available.
