Oh Boy Did We Toot!

Princess Jackie finished her most splendid appliqué quilt, pattern from here. The way Jackie has fussy cut her fabrics is absolutely fabulous. She quilted with free motion designs echoing the butterflies and adding swirly bits... the colours are very much brighter than in this picture... we love it! Toot Toot Toot Jackie!
Tooting now for Lovely Lyn who's been busy over the festive season...  She also fixed her darning foot to the machine and 'went for it'... that's what you have to do... aim and fire basically. Lyns quilting is brilliant and she's feeling very pleased with herself. I'm very proud of both Lyn and Jackie  for 'Going For It'... it really is the only way. Lovely Lyn made all of the blocks for this quilt from a Charm Pack and a metre of background fabric.
Toot Toot Toot for New Sue's latest finish, a spine tingling Bargello... well they do send a little shiver of excitement through the body when you first 'clap eyes' on them. Sue's granddaughter chose the fabrics... obviously a talented young lady... Poor thing was gifted the quilt in one hand and had to give it back with her other because Sue had been asked to bring the finished quilt to class so that we could  oooh and ahhhh over it! he he he... It's back on her bed now though.
