Stitching News

That's in then, The final Friday Quilt Club in My very own classroom, for 2014, has happened and it was a hoot. It's amazing, when you think about it, just how many subjects of conversation can be covered in one day and almost every one ends in fits of giggles... happy days!
Louise finished a few final rows of quilting, trimmed off her quilt crusts, made miles of binding and got it all stitched on... Lou Lou's no fan of hand stitching so we stitched the binding to the back of her quilt so that it could be pulled round to the front to be machine stitched. Matching nails are not compulsory but do look fabulous eh!!
Barbie has made about two thousand Chunky Churndash blocks and an equal amount of Hour Glass blocks, so it was time to start joining a few. We decided that Barbie's best option was to make up 9 Patches to make it easier for her to follow the design when she got home and, by George, she got it!
Mystery Margaret added both inner and outer borders to her quilt centre... it's Margaret's very own design as she loves to make it up as she goes along... PMS (Pleasing My Self) is very much encouraged, as you will surely have noticed by now. All left over fabrics will be made into matching cushions. 

 Once again I only have a few photos to share... not because of secret sewing this time... I just didn't remember well about taking them!...
A bit like forgetting really... ha ha ha
Our next Friday Quilt Club date is 9th January 2015 it sounds such a long time away doesn't it...
