Friday Quilt Club

Barbie's baby quilt... not your regular colours for a new born baby but, when Mummy and Daddy are keen football supporters, baby might as well be brought up knowing who he will support! ha ha ha I forget which team it is but they are Red and White. Barbie needs 12 of these Ohio Star blocks, they will be joined with Double Hourglass blocks... at least that is the plan.
Marion and Helen have both taken a little holiday from their Heirloom quilt blocks. They needed a little break so they decided to quilt baby panels. Helen's chosen to do free motion quilting, this quilt is a gift for a new baby girl and Marion's quilting mock free motion (that's shapes, curves and waves using her walking foot). Marion's version will be on sale in My Very Own Quilt Shop as soon as it is finished.
Joan The Shop finished the hand stitching on this antique quilt (he he he, not a real antique just yet... sorry Joan)  Joan attended our Jenny Rayment workshop in September 2010... oh that was a fun day.... It's going to be made into a cushion ... with a zip!
New Sue wanted to complete her quilt top before she goes on her jolly holiday next Tuesday so she was racing against the clock. She added an inner 1" cream border followed by a 1/2" border of blu-ish fabric. After that it was a selection of bricks of different lengths to use up all the left over fabrics from making the centre... she just about managed to finish it
Joan The Shop wasn't very impressed with her very own free motion daisies but she knew that she wanted Daisies... so she changed the plan... just a little... She secured the wadding and backing fabric out of her way and added appliqué daisies instead... PMS (Pleasing My Self). Joan has a little reputation of adding appliqué to her quilts, right at the last minute... I wonder where the caterpillar will be hiding.
