Caverswall Quilt Cave

A Toot toot toot moment for Gail, can you believe that this is only Gail's second quilt?... I would forgive you for arguing that point but... yes indeed... one small Railfence table runner followed by a double bed size Pineapple Blossom quilt trimmed with spicy-red fabric and seasoned with Faux Piped Binding.. it is absolutely STUNNING... as usual, my photo doesn't begin to show how stunning it is...
... just look at the "WOW" backing she made, every little piece of black and white fabric was used up with gorgeous red fabrics... you should be able to see the fabulous quilting Gail did from this picture of the back... What a Toot Toot Toot it is... we all love it! Gail made it for gifting... she never mentioned whether it would, still, be gifted, ha ha ha
Jolly Jo had finished piecing all of her Kaleidoscope blocks at home and had 'popped' into my very own quilt shop to choose sashing fabric. She spent her Quilt Cave day piecing the rows together, taking very good care to line everything up perfectly, see the corner stones, they surely help line things up you know... ask Jo.
Wendy Wizz, started her Ricky Timms Convergence quilt top only last Wednesday... she finished it Thursday... wondered what she was going to do with it as it's quite small... she thought of a great gifting idea and... already it is almost finished... just the binding to do... unless Wendy changes her mind and comes up with another cunning plan!
Jean Bean came to play. Remember she chose the fabrics for a stunning Square Dance wreath on Monday?... she had them all stitched together and, once she added the red border fabric and made the template, she was able to start cutting it all up again, ha ha ha... Jean was very impressed at how simple the process is for such a stunning result, I told her it was easy, I don't make anything difficult so I can't each anything difficult.. ha ha ha

They all obviously have a great teacher. I so love the bicycle quilt.

Gail the quilt looks fabulous, if it needs a new home mine is available. Jo looked as if she was in a spin with all those wonderful spinning wheels.
