Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Gillian's quilting looks fabulous, I'm sure you agree. Simple lines shadowing the seams... wonderful, quite stunning in fact... not to mention super easy. She used a lovely Madeira variegated thread, pinks to blue and purple, which looks great, especially on the backing.
Jenni was adding the sashing strips to her quilt top. In between each there will be luscious red squares, There might have been luscious red squares today except that Jen forgot to bring the fabric, he he he, still... that meant there was time to choose the next project while thumbing through some quilt books, fun.
Messy Maureen finished the last few lines of quilting. I helped her trim up the borders and to cut the binding. As you can see, the binding is on and will be hand stitched to the back in front of the TV tonight... Maureen started cutting out millions of squares ready for her next project... a bed quilt, she's getting to the bigger stuff now.. he he he We don't meet again now until the 26th April, 10am - 3pm... it seems ages away but we have Uttoxeter Quilt Show to look forward to before then.... oooooo it's getting close now!
