Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Lizzy's finished her fabulous red and cream quilt, it's all packed up ready for her trip to the USA soon. She's now able to get back to making this Hour Glass lap quilt. Lizzy wasn't sure about adding the strong blue blocks but once we played with the lay out she became more convinced, for something so simple they look fabulous, don't you think?

We had a new lady join us for the first time, Lovely Lynda... she had been very inspired by the Uttoxeter Quilt Show a few weeks ago... after toying with the idea of patchwork for a few years. She's taken to it very well, and almost finished the centre of a Railfence baby quilt in the one class. You can't beat lemon, white and mint when baby's sex is a secret.

Giggly Gillian is Over The Moon (another silly expression we have?) with how her lap quilt is turning out, she's thrilled with every aspect of it... she suggested that she would like to wear it to show it off, ha ha ha. We had fun trying to stretch the border fabric as there isn't really enough... can you see what we're doing from the picture, quite genius eh?
Messy Maureen was with us too, just for the duration of the morning, her quilt is getting big as she's done a bit of stitching at home. Maureen volunteers in a charity shop so she had to leave us at lunch time to do her duties, she is always volunteering, a very generous lady indeed!

We meet again at The Bank House Hotel on Tuesday June 7th. 10am - 3pm.
