Stitching News, With Sandwiches

Dilly has one of those clever cutting machines.
She scanned in her pattern pieces and it cut perfect templates for Jeannette to trace round... she arrived for class with all the bits prepared... a good strong cup of tea was needed before the machine was switched on.
Tea imbibed, she slowly and steadily joined the units together...
in the order suggested by the pattern and, yes... it makes a difference... ask Jeannette!
No ironing or pressing just yet...
A whole day!!! This is a tricky block to make. Each one, I am quite sure, will be better than the last... It's a learning experience... we already know that Jeannette loves a challenge though eh.
No I Clare made another memory quilt top...
 see the legs of the jeans... fun eh!
Simple quilting will be done now that the sandwich has been made
Peggy spied her opportunity to make a crafty little sandwich.... smaller quilts needing only two tables are easier to squish in during classes. This quilt will be donated to the Donna Louise Trust... once it's finished, of course.
Merrily is in the process of making another memory quilt, for the last grandchild!..
the quilts never got any smaller though...
Merrily knows very well by now, that she can quilt her projects in smaller units to be joined together... appartmently! this in one third being sandwiched
A smaller sandwich... Sheila has really enjoyed making these pretty little projects... those buttons look great on the Suffolk Puffs don't they, and pretty stitches for the leaves and stems. We chose a most beautiful backing fabric for Sheila's cushion...
This is the 'Not So Quick Table Topper' that Barbara is making...
 with beautiful Batiks... so that's another sandwich achieved.
We are having a run on pinning just lately.
