Stitching News

After joining the ends on the binding of her blue and cream lap quilt, Giggly Gillian finished her little bird cushion. The branches are made with very fine Ric-Rac which as been hand couched in place with hand stitched applique flowers and bird. There's more detail on the cushion back too... what a lovely gift.
Two finished projects in just one day!
Gillian spent the rest of the day quilting her Blooming Bargello by following the rise and fall of the design with a most beautiful variegated King Tut thread.
Princess Jackie finished the centre of her Pineapple Blossom and made a final decision on the border.
With quite a few Jelly Roll strips left over there were several ways to border this lovely bright quilt top. You're only seeing half the quilt here.
Rose laid out her chosen fabrics for the next project...
it's not a Bargello but having made two Bargello quilts,
Rose knew exactly how she wanted the colour scheme to work.
It's another pattern from Rose's Jelly Roll book but, again, not using a Jelly Roll.

Jackie's quilt is stunning and I love the colours of Gillian's pieces. A lovely colour palette for Rose's quilt too.
