Stitching News

Christabelle spent her afternoon class doing free-motion doodling on her farmyard blocks... meandering around all those trees, creatures, flowers and tractors...
very clever and great practice.
As requested, here's the book (not a magazine at all... silly me) that Just Edna used to make her wonderful, and extremely huge, wedding gifting quilt...
Which happens to be on my very own classroom wall, should you wish to come along to see it for your very own self.
This is Just Edna's practice block for her next gifting project... as it turned out to be fabulous and accurate, it was promoted to be the first block of the bed-head wall hanging, not the practice block.
Lady Judith borrowed one of the Juki machines as she thought she had broken her very own Janome... it wasn't broken but there was a little thread jam.. all sorted now. Judith is quilting with diagonal lines... much easier for large quilts.
Jean Bean is making a commission quilt... and it needs to be made lick-etty-split... Setting the About A Girl blocks on point by adding triangles to each side works really well doesn't it! This project needs to be pink, very pink-y-pink!
Gail had decided that she didn't want to make any more 6 inch Churndash blocks... but she still wanted a good size of quilt. Setting her blocks On-Point sorted out that dilemma... and doesn't it look great too?
PM Pam decided to start a new project. It's another from the Jen Kingwell book, Quilt Lovely. The pattern is meant for using up lots of fabric scraps and Pam hadn't brought any with her... so we chose fabrics with large designs on them so that each small piece was very different from the next.
