Stitching News

Princess Jackie does the most beautiful appliqué.... you've probably noticed already. This pattern was inspired by a piece of fabric... Jackie traced the little design elements then took them to  the library to be blown up. What a lovely quilt centre! what a great idea... The beautiful quilt will be part of a fundraising auction, we can bid too!
Rose spent her day quilting... She is stitching in the ditch and for Rose, 'steady eddy' is the only way... it might take quite a bit longer but the results are worth it. Rose is making this quilt to be raffled as a fundraiser, so we get to purchase tickets if we would like the chance to win.
Gail had a tricky job putting her strips together... those little white sashings had to line up you see, they can cause a little stress but Gail wasn't phased at all... well.. just a little maybe... again, it will be worth all the effort... what a lovely quilt!
