Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Lovely Lyn's sheep, all 9 of them... aren't they fabulous? The cutest of cute things for a baby quilt.. any baby, boy or girl. I wasn't sure the black thread would look right for the blanket stitch but is absolutely does. Lyn said that the eyes were a real fiddle, with them being so small but a pair of tweezers helped out. The border fabric has been chosen... wait 'til you see it!

Lizzy worked on her Churndash quilt. All the blocks are joined together to make the two halves, I don't know whether you remember me telling you that Lizzy is going to quilt this project in two halves and join them together afterwards... this method is proving to be very popular. The borders were added and next week Lizzy will make sandwiches!

Marisabel carefully squared up her Split 4-Patch blocks. It was the best plan really. Some of them had turned out different sizes because of that inaccurately cut Charm pack she had been given. As you can see the sashing strips have been cut ready. There's going to be floral fabric corner stones too...

Giggly Gillian couldn't resist it... she left her "Almost Finished" projects at home so she could start to make a flock of sheep for her very own self, inspired by Lovely Lyn's flock of course... Gillian's grandbaby will be arriving in April I think. This baby play quilt could well be finished by then.

We are meeting again next week Tuesday 31st January, 10am - 3pm as usual.

What do you mean that the sheep are cute for a baby quilt? I would love them for me. I can see that Uttoxeter is going to be renamed Ewetoxeter. Joining two halves of a quilt together sounds an interesting idea - bet it's one of yours. The split 4 patch is great.
