Stitching News

Fruity Rose found a great way to look at the progress she's made on her table/bed runner... She's thrilled to bits... actually, she's 'thrilled to lots', that it looks just like the quilt in the book because that's exactly what she wanted!
I'll just have to mention, as I do, that that's an excellent view of my classroom from the window side!! Don't the carpet tiles look great too?
Just Jan is making Piano Key border strips. After careful measuring she came to the conclusion that the may not be enough to get the whole way round the quilt, so they might end up being half that width... that way they will go twice as far...
Jan is very resourceful!
Susan used one of our Skeleton panels... she was lucky enough to get one last year as they sold out Lick-etty-Split... to make a quilt to go to University this Autumn. How to quilt it? We pondered, practiced, changed minds, suggested and pondered a little more... I think Susan settled on a great idea.
Jean Bean spent her day quilting. We were few in numbers for the morning class so there was enough room for Jean's sandwich to be made... This commissioned, pink, but not to pinky-pink quilt will be ready lick-etty-split.
Just Edna also took advantage of the spare tables to make her deliciously rich and loooong quilt. I think this one is a wall hanging for a bedhead wall... It's a bit of a 'very own' treat for Edna to be quilting such a small project!!!
