Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Gillian chose her backing fabric from the "Table Top Shop, wadding on the side" and made a sandwich with her Scrappy Hour Glass quilt. She's using her walking foot to quilt it all over following the seam lines... not 'ditch hopping' but shadow quilting.. it looks great.

Jenni has completed all 12 of her main blocks and was able to cut and piece the sashing strips, she had time to add a few giving us an idea of how lovely it's going to be... the pattern is here if you feel tempted to make a quilt like Jenni's

Lizzy made lots more Hour Glass blocks, she's making hers a little bigger than Gillian's. Lizzy's using a more controlled fabric selection as she wanted to use up her bugs and butterflies fabrics... it might be the same design as Gillian's but it will look completely different, I'm sure.
Messy Maureen made her sandwich and did loads of the quilting. she's following the triangle seams with her walking foot... a little ditch hopping mixed with some shadow quilting... whatever took her fancy really... good for her eh!!
We meet again next Tuesday 5th April then again on Tuesday 26th April. 10am - 3pm.
