Stitching News

Joan The Shop has almost finished her Poppy wall hanging quilt...
Beautiful eh? The crusts were trimmed and the binding was machined in place.
Hand stitching will be done at home.

Little Annette says she's really pleased with her little Twister Heart.
The borders were all on by the end of the day.
Annette had decided to wait until next week to start her quilting
Wendy hand stitched her binding to the back of her quilt.
She took this one to Show And Tell ant this months SPQ meeting.
Hopefully I will get a fabulous and finished picture next week.

My Wife Beth also stitched on her binding, she too will be hand stitching at home. What a lot of new projects we must be planning... so many ladies are binding. Beth's quilt is a rainbow of craziness... her own words.
Just Edna finished her Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt centre.
As we were planning the borders we spotted a little woooopsie... can you see it?
Enda decided to do a little unpicking and all was good by the end of the day.
Helen finally made her giant sandwich.
Last time she tried we noticed that there was too much fabric in the borders.
They had to come off and be re-measured. Worth all the trouble though...
good and flat now... ready for free motion stitching.
Chris The Foot is back from her globe trotting.
She sandwiched and quilted yet another Quick Table Topper.
Chris followed the circular design on the fabric, result?
Meanders all of an even size... tricky but fun!
Jean Bean continued quilting with her walking foot. All the bright jewel like centre squares are having the ditch hopping treatment before Jean starts her free motion detail...(ditch hopping is like stitching in the ditch but you are allowed to pop over the line sometimes... very liberating!!)  
My Mum Gwynneth finished this most fabulous cushion front.
It will be gifted to a very special lady for her birthday...
obviously it will be a cushion by then... with a zip!!!
We are loving the Basic Grey Grunge fabrics!!!
