Stitching News

My Mum Gwynneth had to make more Dresden Plate cushions. 
They make popular gifting items but not everyone wants to make their own... 
We sell them with, or without, the cushion pads... luxury for your sofa! 
Gail's 3D Folded cushion is fabulous and finished... Toot toot toot... 
not for sale... though we have lots more of the fabrics, Ha!
Started at the recent workshop with our Sheila, Gail is very happy with her handiwork 
Princess Jackie finished her quilt, just in time for tooting... no, I mean it was in time for the Charity Auction she's involved with... such a pretty and beautiful quilt... I hope it goes to a lovely new owner... I don't know how Jackie managed to part with it... do you think she will end up out-bidding everyone to keep it?
Gail started a new project... BEN-to Box... for a lovely fellow named Ben.
This is going to be a stunning quilt... just look at those lovely fabrics!! These blocks are Gail's practice ones... just to see whether she would enjoy making them... she did!
Rose is happily piecing blocks for her new project. She had 3 growing piles of different blocks so decided to have a count up to see how progress was going, Rose discovered that she is half way along, row 3 up!... onwards and upwards Rose...
Lovely Lyn needed space to spread out her latest large blocks, but we were full up with happy, chatty quilters meaning that no space large enough for Lyn could be found... so she continued quilting her daisy project... free motion no less!
Krafty Karen pieced a whole quilt top in one afternoon... just as well as three quilts need to be finished Lick-etty- Split... they are for gifting during sewing prevention season. One has binding on, one is being quilted and this one will be sandwiched soon... not enough work waiting? Karen sandwiched a quilt panel before she went home too... 
Who needs sleep anyway?
Princess Jackie's been dabbling with Foundation Paper Piecing... 
It's been tricky but she refused to be beaten... by gorge she got it!! Practice makes??? PERFECT... she needs 5 more of this unit.
Joan The Shop has one half of her Quilt-As-You-Go sampler almost finished. This project uses a slightly different way of joining individually quilted blocks together... it's very clever. The method is from a Lyn Edwards Essential Sampler book
