Stitching News

Poppy's Mum came back to visit... She made these fabulous cushion covers from the fabrics she had left from making the beautiful, double sided, bed scarf/runner. She gets inspiration from the book 'Pillow Pop'
Poppy's Nan made this beautiful blouse using rather gorgeous, Art Gallery fabric, purchased from my lovely quilt shop. My picture doesn't show off the shape very well so I asked that next time, Poppy's Nan could wear, and therefore, model her new clothes... it didn't go down well! ha ha 
Just in time for our upcoming Crumbs with Mile-A-Minute workshop... on Saturday this week, Morning Judith brought in her fabulous and almost finished quilt top. There will be a couple more borders added yet. Judith thought it might inspire you to try this method of using up your little scraps, funny shapes, thin strips and all. Did you note that Judith made mini blocks for corner stones too?
Dotty Maureen started this doggie quilt last Friday at Friday Quilt Club.
Each Friday my classroom is open for you to stitch the day away, 10-3pm
One week later and the binding was stitched on to the lap sized quilt, it's ready for a fanfare. Toot toot toot, Dotty's quilt is fabulous and finished,
hope your dogs love it!
 After impressing the new Daddy by including an 'away strip' grey inner border, Barbie added the last white border to this baby play mat, sandwiched it and started the quilting. It's feeling quite easy to quilt for Barbie as it is a tiny quilt compared to her last few projects.
Sporty sue, armed with a plethora of little rulers, continued making blocks from the Jelly Roll Sampler book. She's enjoying the challenge of making each block different. Sooner or later... they will become a quilt, I wonder how many blocks Sue will make?
I've just added a few more workshops to the list. Details can be found by clicking on the tab at the top of this page.
