Stitching News

Barbie started this quilt quite a while ago but it had had to be set aside for other projects with tighter deadlines. In setting it aside, it had been forgotten. When the young lady asked her Nan, 'Where's my pink quilt' Barbie remembered it needed finishing... so finish it she will.
Lady Judith added the final borders of her lovely Little Black Dress 2 quilt top, it's a huge one measuring 102" by 87". The back will be made by adding a Charm Pack strip between two long pieces of fabric, to add a little interest... a sandwich Saturday booking has been made!

PM Pam likes to try new things, when a new magazine arrives with new ideas... she gets excited. This cushion caught Pam's attention as she's never tried Prairie Points before... as you can see, she mastered them splendidly. My delightful Dutch Heritage fabrics look fabulous, don't you think? 
Not from a new magazine but from an older one... this fabulous Christmas Tree is made with the same strip method as the Love Star some ladies made recently. It's a super quick project to make. Pam just needs to quilt it. I suspect there will be more of these trees made.
Last today, but not least, we can toot toot toot for another Fabulous and Finished cushion made by Christabelle for another extreeeeemly lucky friend. See the Hexagons have been fussy cut to make the lovely lace-y pattern...
That's all the photos I took, not that I didn't have time, I have no excuses... what a lovely day we had in my very own quilt shop, beautiful projects, lovely ladies, interesting conversation, a few deliveries (yes, more fabric)... I just forgot!
An evening visit to the hospital means the stitches are now out of my poorly flipper wound... so, onward and upward... lets start getting back to normal... whatever that is?
