Caverswall Quilt Cave

Joan The Shop has been making her pattern up as she goes, can you remember her Peppa Pig quilts... all little sketches brought to life with fabrics... isn't applique a wonderful thing...
This is Joan's completed winner's trophy from the cross-stitch pattern, the 'H' is for Harvey... a winner in Joan's eyes... well... tis her grandson no less. The trophy should be on the back of this quilt, along with a few appliqued cars and flags, but it's looking more like the front now... wait a minute.... tis just double sided... who needs a back when you can have two fronts eh!! !

Gilly just missed her deadline for finishing this quilt... she decided to sleep a few hours each night you see... if she hadn't she'd have made it bang on time, he he he. The quilting's finished now though, by the time Gilly left the Quilt Cave there was only binding to be done.

Shirley Lerly has 10 of these blocks completed and the other 14 are are almost done. There's going to be cream sashing (not the one in this picture though) with corner stones of the lotus leaf fabric... the borders are not decided yet.... we're making it up as we go along, fun!

Helen is doing a fantastic job with this project, it's taking a while but well worth the all the extra hours. Helen received the book for Christmas, here's the link to project, as you will see, this bit is the centre... Helen says it's her practice piece... WOW it's looking good.

Foxy Margaret is also making it up as she goes along... we do promote PMS you know... that's "Please My Self" patchwork & quilting. There's going to be a couple more borders yet as it needs to fit a double bed... from table runner to bed quilt... very cool!
Annie Pie is so pleased with this quilt that she's making another. The next one will be bigger and made with richer reds and creams... so, basically, it will be the same... but different! More PMS I think, he he he. Annie has also started a "Square Dance" quilt.. more on that next time she joins us...

That's it for this time, when we're busy the camera gets forgotten, of course, if you want to see more, you could always come on over and join the fun... we meet again on Friday 25th February, 10am until 3pm. Table Top Shop is open to everyone between these hours, you don't have to stay all day to use it, and let's not forget our very busy 'Kettle Corner', where visitors are always welcome.
