Caverswall Quilt Cave

A finish! Barbie sat and tied off a few last threads and this Log Cabin quilt was finished... She is very pleased with the result and can't wait to give it to it's new owner....
There's even a label on the back. See how we made a fabulous pieced backing using up all the bits that Barbie had left over, she had her doubts at first but is chuffed to bits with the way it looks now... a happy lady.

Last time Carole joined us I had done a short demo of how to make the 'Jeans Circle' quilt, she must have taken great notes because she made one at home all by her very own self and brought it in to show us, such a great quilt made from old jeans and small scraps.

Barbie chose a new lot of fabrics, this time light blue and dark blue to make another quilt like the black and white one, this one will not have sashing though... it is quite a stunning design that delivers the "Wow Factor' every time... no matter what colour it is made in.

Dotty Maureen pieced a great backing for her Man Quilt.... all the left over half square triangles making a chevron type design either side of a spare strip set... she didn't get quite to the sandwich stage as she had a little accident with a rotary cutter... hope it's OK.

Helen completed another of her fabulous Heirloom blocks, thanks to all of the lovely comments and emails about her work, she has decided to go ahead and make the whole quilt, so. Thanks for taking the time to encourage Helen... I always pass on your messages to the Ladies.

Joan The Shop made a silver formula one car and this is the last one. We did a little calculating so that Joan could purchase the rest of the fabric for the back, there might be need for sandwich next time...

My Mum (Gwynneth) has made quite a few of her 'Kayak' blocks, see when you place them side by side.. they make a secondary circular design... which is what drew Mum to make them in the first place... this one will be stunning me thinks.

We meet again on Wednesday 30th March and Friday 1st Apil at Caverswall Village Hall, 10am - 3pm. You're all very welcome to pop in for a flying visit or to stay all day stitching and chatting... the more the merrier! "Table Top Shop, wadding on the side" will be happy to serve you with anything you need to get on.... see ya there?
