Stitching News

Sporty Sue sorted out her backing fabric and, as it's not too larger project, she was able to make her quilt sandwich and start the quilting. How to quilt it was a tricky decision, so many ideas... Sue decided to stitch 'near the ditch' in the black sashing using a deep and scrumptious YLU purple, variegated thread to start with. There may be a little free motion curly stitching done... there may not be... more as it happens!
Maid Marion's friend Flora had quite a few projects started when she passed away and Marion is determined to finish them, over time and in between making other things. There was a pile of Bow Tie blocks but no plan of how Flora would have wanted them, so we played a little with layout ideas until Marion was happy. This isn't quite the design we chose, but a little unpicking never hurt did it!
Barbie's quilt 'orders' are now complete... there may be another kiddy quilt required soon but, in the meanwhile she's getting back to her Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope blocks. We had to go back to the basics because it was so long ago that Barbie attended the workshop she forgot how and all the top tips!
