Fanfare Time

Toot toot-etty-toot toot... just how big can we make quilts with the very fabulous apartment quilting method... the answer is obviously... Massive!!
This might well be the largest quilt I have ever seen...
I couldn't get it all in the photo but it's a wow quilt.
A fabulous finish made by Gilly over the last 4 years, what an achievement.
Another toot toot toot fanfare for a fabulous and finished quilt made also by Gilly.
This one was made with old, but rather gorgeous, curtains... The lining makes up the backing fabric. A much loved already, family heirloom in the making.
It's ever so soft and cuddly too.
Toot toot toot, New Sue did it again...
We all just stand with our mouths open as we say "Wow!"
Perfect piecing, perfect and precise quilting, perfect colour choices... and the best bit... we can purchase raffle tickets to win it... once they are printed!!
I couldn't not show you the back... just look at the fabulous quilting!!!
Once I have more details about the raffle I will post them here. It's all official and registered so we can safely purchase as many as we want to.
Longport Lynda is on a roll with her finishing spree.
This Paper pieced Christmas Tree wallhanging is now ready for use... it's been growing for a year or two, ha ha ha. This was a wonderful workshop a couple of years ago and we will do it again in the Autumn section of our year...
Tomorrow I will update the 2015 Workshop list.

Another toot toot toot for Longport Lynda. The fabulous and finished fruits of a Jenny Barlaston Hexagon happy workshop which will also be repeated in Autumn... (Is that OK Jenny? Perhaps I should have asked her first, no pressure now eh!!)
Sandy attended the 3D Folded Cushion workshop last Saturday and had so much fun stitching the whole day side by side with her lovely daughter, Claire Sainsburys, who had treated her Mum to the workshop for Mothers Day... what a great idea!! Sandy made a second cushion when she got home and has plans for 12 more.... though they may not be 3D folded ones... she has other ideas... but they will all have one of my fabulous 20" cushion zips which are a best selling notion!! ha ha ha
