Stitching News

Joan The Shop's Snowman Collector quilt top, progress so far. It's a large quilt and took 4 of us to hold it out. I think there's just one more border to go, what a beauty... You can tell Joan loves colour can't you!
Aunty June decided to go 'back to basics' by making a Railfence project...
She's planning to get ahead by making a collection of little quilts to stock up as baby production is up with June's family and friends. June took delivery of her brand new Juki HZL 210 this week, she's happy, happy!

Di Butterfly want's to make a play mat for when her grand-baby comes to visit. She chopped up an alphabet panel to start with... after a few setting ideas, she decided to join them into 4-Patches and then to sash them...
We're making it up as she goes, PMS... Pleasing My Self.

This is one of Merrily's memory blocks, a Staffordshire Knot.
Each piece had been stuck carefully in place with Heat and Bond then Merrily hand appliquéd every one with blanket stitch... perfectly stitched,
I though she had done it by machine!

Our quilting rebel, Josie, continued to make more Tumbling Block units and, by George, she got it... there are quite a few perfect 'Y' seams in there and some almost perfect quarter inch seams too... The blocks look great don't they? They will be appliquéd to a background fabric.
