Stitching News

Morning Judith has been making these rather beautiful sail boats for a short while. I bet you can see that they are all paper pieced... tricky to start with but easy once the method clicks... or thuds as in some cases!! They will be 2 3/4" blocks to make a fabulous little quilt. 
Wow... a colour explosion!! 
Jean Bean is in the process of adding beautiful border strips of randomly... yet carefully, chosen batik fabrics in various sizes. I hope you noticed how well my lovely Lotus chair co-ordinates with Jean's quilt top?
PM Pam finished another fabulous Dresden Plate cushion made with the left over fabrics from her hunter' Star quilt. Pam used a Dresden ruler to rotary cut her segments, it's a little easier than using templates. 
Christabelle made this fabulous Dresden Plate cushion to be gifted... yes, in place of the Elephant cushion that has become a 'Keeper'. See how Christabelle used the split segments to give a 3D effect? The centre has had a little free motion quilting added to it too.
AnnBacan added the border strips to her rather splendid Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt. It's Ann's largest quilt so far with each block measuring 14 or so inches. We considered apartment quilting to make it a little easier but Ann 'fancied the challenge'! 
This lovely little kiddy play mat sandwich belongs to Jan. She added her borders in lovely yellow making a very cheery quilt. There was quite a discussion about possible quilting designs, I wonder which Jan will choose?
