Stitching News

I'm not sure I could find a word do describe Krafty Karen's excitement to have made a most splendid cushion... with a zzzzzzip closure!!
ast Saturday was the Dresden Plate Cushion workshop and, of course, Karen came.., it's been a great workshop making people very happy in the cushion department, so I shall try to add another workshop date, soon!
Toot toot toot Karen... it's fabulous and finished!
PM Pam is Our Cushion Queen...
and the Dresden Plate cushion making marathon continues.
We discovered that with the Easy Dresden Ruler you can change the sizes of the plates, even if you didn't mean to... giving fabulous results and making over-lookers want to make them too! 
Toot toot toot Pam... it's also, fabulous and finished!
After seeing Fran Cupcake's Log Cabin blocks being made, Rose decided to make a few Log Cabin blocks for her very own self... " not with a plan, unlike Fran..." (did you clock the poetry???) thrilled with the results they'll now be made into a lap quilt, a lovely square one which will be just the ticket.
Giggly Gillain's new lap quilt is coming along a treat. She came to class with all the appliqué finished so WE were able to get it all stitched together.
This quilt is going to have a curvy border...
I've never done that before s we shall be learning together, Gillian and I...
Jean Bean, measuring her border strips through the centre of her quilt. We've had a few tricky pinning times of late because folk are forgetting this stage. If you don't measure your borders through the centre of your projects, you run the risk of getting a wavy edged quilt... which is a devil to work with, right from the sandwich stage to the finish.
