Stitching News With Tooting

Sporty Sue finished her quilt.. Toot Toot Toot.
There's perfect piecing and fabulous free motion quilting on this Jelly Roll beauty
It's gone to be gifted to a very lucky lady, for sure she will love it!
Morning Judith finished this small and wonderful festive wall hanging.
She had picked up the pattern during her visit to the Festival Of Quilts recently.
Such a simple design and what a lovely result.
This also belongs to Morning Judith, it's a PhD (Project Half Done)
Judith purchased this pattern at the Quilt Village quilt show in Uttoxeter back in April and she's been steadily appliquéing all the blocks... it was great to see them all stitched together and bordered.
And, can you believe it? Morning Judith also made this mini quilt... the binding will be stitched down next... another pattern purchased at the NEC. The tree is made with folded fabrics so it's a 3D design, clever and, apparently, tricky to keep level.
I must look harder when I go to a quilt show... I missed all these lovely things!
Jackie Janome... who just had a 'new to her' fabulous Janome sewing machine'...  so Jackie Janome it is... is quilting her Railfence Table runner quilt by following the zig-zag patchwork design. Learning lots of useful new skills along the way...
As is her quilty chum, Jo, who started classes at the very same time. All shadow quilting completed, Jo tried her hand at Stitching In The Ditch (or  rather ditch hopping as it's come to be known in my world!) I have to say she is very good at it!
