Lots Of Catching Up...

Rose is using her new book 'Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts' to make a stunning table runner. The two halves will be mirror image, this is just one half, obviously... The Bargello design never fails to impress does it?... Actually, Rose's quilts never fail to impress!
Giggly Gillian's Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt... Oh My Goodness WOW!!! Gillian's been working on other projects alongside quilting this beauty, so we'd kind of forgotten about it... but when she turned up with it finished, ready to trim the crusts off and add the binding... jaws dropped!
Sandy was a very lucky Mum this last Mothers' Day, two Patchwork and Quilting lessons in My very own classroom... gifted by her very lovely daughter Claire. She said that she thoroughly enjoyed the class!
...and no wonder... Lovely Daughter Claire came along too adding a little extra specialness to the wonderful gift! Great progress was made and the ladies will be back soon to work on their lovely Railfence table runners.
Lovely Lyn had made enough blocks, so she joined them together.... there were so many ways  to set these blocks making rather splendid secondary patterns, are you seeing stars in this setting? Such a simple block with really stunning results.
Foxy Margaret is making her Grandmother's Fan / Dresden Plate blocks and quilting them 'as she goes'. What a great design for using up scraps, it's one I hadn't thought of actually.. a great idea for a workshop?
Wendy's scrappy quilt...
what can I say other than... I LOVE IT!!!
Princess Jackie's absolutely stunning, absolutely fabulous and absolutely huge... Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt top, finished and ready to be sandwiched and quilted... so big we had to take it outside for the photo shoot. Jackie's going to pop over to Caverswall Quilt Cave to pin this one!
My Mum Gwynneth continues to work on these 3D block blocks... ever so tricky to piece with lots of seams to line up on the 'Y' joins... not for the faint hearted but stunning results... isn't it clever how the colour placement works.
