Caverswall Quilt Cave

Maid Marion had made lots of 6" half square triangle units. She played with them and came up with this quilt centre, she added borders and then decided that she wanted it to be bigger, so... we turned the left over units into hour glass blocks and played with settings for them..., a few 'mathy' moments later, the 'coping strip' size was calculated and production resumed....

Joan The Shop scetched a few flags, got out the 'sticky stuff', traced her designs and then pressed them onto her fabric, we do love 'sticky stuff! She stitched it using blanket stitch... just a few more flags to go and the backing will be ready to be sandwiched... oooops I mean the second top, not backing.
Brenda Barbara free-motion quilted beach bag panels then made a big pocket for the front of it... we've had two days with warm sunshine you know... that and the hall heating finally working well, we were warm as toast!.. time to be thinking about beaches....?

Barbie is adding borders to her quilt based on my Lilly's Colours, getting the triangles the right way up and turning corners, keeping the direction flowing, can be a bit of a challenge, but she did it very successfully.

My Mum (Gwynneth) made up her sandwich and spent the day quilting... she's doing "Ditch Hopping"... it's our new and liberated way to do 'Stitching in the Ditch' and we love it!

We meet again next Wednesday 2nd & Friday 4th of March.
10am - 3pm, as usual.
I know your gardens are calling you to play outside... with spring fast approaching there's so much needing to be done... but I booked a few days of rain for the weekend, I thought it would help us to have time for stitchy fun instead, he he he
