Stitching News With Tooting

Early Sue's Beautiful Batik Bargello Quilt... Finished, and ready for gifting.
Toot Toot Toot Sue, it is a stunning quilt.
Made from only half of one Batik Beauty, Jelly Roll.
The other half, plus a second Batik Jelly Roll, will be making a much larger Bargello quilt... the next one though, will not be gifted, Sue's making it all for her very own self!
Jean Bean spread out her blocks to see how the quilt will look and... how many more blocks she needed. Jumping with joy when she counted up 'ONE' more block to make... after revision though, we saw she needed the one plus one more row making a total of nine more blocks to be stitched.
Lovely Lyn persevered with her Flying Geese blocks until she got them flying perfectly goose-y. This is one block unit that requires a very accurate 'scant 1/4" seam'... only if it's perfection you want... otherwise don't worry about it... perfection is only important in Patchwork if it's important to you...
It is important to Lovely Lyn so... my goodness... we work at it!
This is also Lovely Lyn's project, it's the quilt that the Tuesday ladies are working on together, sort of... they're all making their own quilt, at their own pace, in their own colour and fabric choices, keeping a close eye on each other and pinching sharing top tips... more progress as it happens!
