Stitching News

I think I would be right in saying that today, in my very own little classroom everyone, without exception, was delighted to be 'back to normal' Most folks' holidays are done and dusted and routine stitching is back where it belongs... at the top of the "To Do" list!
Marilla popped in during the day to show us her superb Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope quilt. This lovely quilt is totally hand pieced and hand quilted... rather beautifully indeed. Marilla has another piece of fabric ready to Stack up and Whack up to make another Kaleidoscope... they are so exciting to make!
This is the back of Marilla's quilt... fabulous!
So, if you're ready and poised to give a fanfare
 Toot Toot Toot Marilla, it's finished and fabulous!
Not quite tooting time for Auntie June but she's very, very close. She finished her borders, trimmed the excess crusts from the quilt... made binding and stitched it in place ready for hand stitching at home... June moved directly to number two quilt... a blue-er version... June says she's going to make as many quilts as it takes to get it perfect! hmmmm does perfect really happen?
Just Jan continued working on some of the many segments of her Persian Rug quilt. This picture, taken from above as it was laid on the floor, shows it looks just like one... how very exciting! 
AnnBacan has been on holiday for ever....
Today she found her way back to my lovely quilt shop... she's making Split 4-Patch blocks... 16 done and just over 100 to go!
Christabelle added binding to this lovely, commissioned, baby play mat. She's been busy! I tried to take an arty-farty photograph so that you would be able to see her quilting, it's fabulous.
We might not see this quilt again... baby came early!
Monday Sheila has finished quilting all three thirds of her huge Lone Start quilt. She's going to join them together 'apartmently' but with a twist... the top joining strip will be made with diamond strips left over from the Lone Star blocks... what a fabulous idea... I can't wait to see how it looks...

Good to see everyone busy again. I am always in awe of Marilla and her hand work.
