Tuesday Stitching

Krafty Karen is just about arriving at the top of the 'home straight with her Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt.  She quilted the centre in two halves before joining them, appartment style, and is now working on quilting the borders which have been added separately... Toot toot toot is just around the corner!

Same for Jenny Barlaston, another toot toot toot is on it's way (really! wait for the next post!) Jenny said that she had started this quilt over one year ago and will be very happy to see it finished. Jenny sent the quilt to Quilters Trading Post to be quilted by a computerised machine and it looks wonderful.

Lovely Lyn spent her day making more paper pieced baubles for her Christmas tree wall hanging, I'm not sure she will ever paper piece again in the future. You know Paper Piecing is like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it! Once everyone had packed up to go home there was enough table space to sandwich Lyn's beautiful purple quilt, so we did just that.

Princess Jackie finished her last few blocks and, after a quick 'how to', cut the side setting triangles and pieced the whole thing together. There's a chart in My Very Own Classroom to help with the side setting triangle sizes, tis very useful indeed... 

Giggly GIllian made this little quilt last year and I had asked her to bring it one day so that I could have another look at it, and get a picture to show to you too! We had a lot of fun with fudging and improvising while we worked on this one, it's really beautiful isn't it.
