Stitching News

Let's start with a Fabulous and Finished fanfare of tooting for Jeannette Dilly's rather stunning quilt... toot toot toot! You almost need your sunglasses on to look at this beauty. All the background has been free-motion stippled and the pattern was a feature in a magazine, I forget which one.
Jeanette Milly started a new project. It's a Jelly Roll pattern but Milly is using her very own fabric cut into 2 1/2" strips. She's getting some lovely, accurate pointy-point centres on those Hexagons!!
Brenda Barbara brought in a picture of her next project, it was in a magazine, and, once I had figured out how to do it.... there wasn't a pattern you see.... Brenda was stitching away and got on a treat. The plan's make a lovely bag
Poor Jenny Barlaston... we've had lovely customers purchasing our fabulous Quilter's Quarters (Fat Quarters) so she had the job of cutting, folding and labelling more... it's a tricky thing keeping those baskets full... Jenny says it would be much easier to keep up without customers!! I gave her a little talking to of course! ha ha ha
No wonder Dilly makes a lot of quilts... see here?
She started one of her Snowman Collector blocks in the morning and the very next time I looked at her table she had prepared lots of blocks for her little boy quilt... she works so very fast and joins in with all the distractions like tea, giggling and gossip... a multi-tasking wonder woman?
Christabelle popped in to show of her fabulous and finished projects.
This delightful bag was purchased at the NEC Festival Of Quilts in August.
Isn't it cute...
This quilt and the one below are both commission works. The lovely customer will have a choice of which one meets her brief perfectly then Christabelle will have the other little quilt ready for gifting... now that's great service, don't you think?
Cuter than cute... which one would you choose?
