Caverswall Quilt Cave

Wendy's quilt is coming on a treat. Not sure whether you'll recall me telling you that she has used the Eleanor Burns method for the wedding rings, that means they are all done using applique. Wendy has used a large blanket stitch on them and it looks fabulous. Here she is testing out the layout... I think it's plan 'C' or could be plan 'D', he he he She changed her mind a few times already... and she can... PMS remember?
Annie Pie has spent quite a lot of time quilting at home and continued at our meeting. She decided to shadow each of the star background pieces, this means that she has tied off two ends for every cream shape.. what a fiddle, but you have to agree it was well worth all the fiddling it looks stunning.... see how she used one of her many 'fancy' stitched to embellish the sashing... brilliant!
Dotty Maureen brought her very own Juki TL-98 P machine to our meeting so that she could do free motion quilting on this very old PhD. Apparently, Ruth (who was working on her Stained Glass quilt top) had been asking whether Dotty had finished it as it was something they had both worked on in a class together ages ago... Dotty decided to please Ruth by actually finishing it. She's doing a different quilting design for each block, great practice... looking good so far.
Foxy Margaret finished her Braids and added sashing, which stabilizes each row. This quilt will not have wadding (so I guess you're thinking it's not a proper quilt, but hey... we don't allow the quilt police to comment so quilt it is) It's going to be used as a Sun lounger cover... we are getting plenty of sun these days,,, so that's a good plan... tis raining today though, ha ha ha
Chris The Foot, a proud brand new Grandparent, added the sashing with corner stones to this lap quilt, it's the Split 4-Patch design that we all love at the Quilt Cave... Just a small border to add and this one will be sandwiched. Then Chris will put all of her energies into making a wedding gift quilt... August deadline .. very do-abubble!
Of course there were other ladies having fun with us, no pictures though, completely my fault and I know it's becoming a habit... too much fun to remember the camera, we can catch up on their progress next time.
We meet again 10am - 3pm in Caverswall Village Hall on Friday the 13th May... don't worry, we won't have any ladders for you to walk under, no carpets to trip over... ha ha ha are you superstitious?
