Stitching News

Our Sheila had left over fabrics after making up her cushion and table runner set...
Most of the fabrics were trimmings from cutting squares for those projects...
Look what can happen to bits you might throw away!!!
A terrific tote bag, fabulous and finished... toot toot toot!
All Art Gallery Fabrics so, of course... it's super-silky n soft too.

Carol purchase a Lazy Girl pattern last week... then she carefully chose her fabrics and set about making up this Whimsey Bag (chosen from my fabulous new pattern wall!) Now, the bag is fabulous and finished, toot toot toot, and stuffed with things for class... see the little pocket purse Carol made with her leftover fabrics... The actual Lazy Girl bag pattern was very easy to follow, as always

Carol's main fabrics are from Moda... Carol felt the centre panel needed a little embellishment to tie the fabrics together so... can you see the lovely little embroidered flowers she added... genious!!
Toot toot toot Carol, your brilliant bag is fabulous and finished!!

Di Butterfly spent her morning quilting this lovely Beatrix Potter picture quilt... she has quite a few things at the quilting stage at the moment... I know this because of her sandwich making frenzy last week! There'll be a binding bonanza next no doubt! ha ha ha

Brenda Barbara is using the No-Waste Flying Geese, free tutorial paper to make her block units... It's a very favourite method of mine... Have you tried it? Follow this link and you'll see what I mean... fool proof! Brenda's main fabric, which is the Goose that will be flying, is a most scrumptious Art Gallery one.., I love it!

All Day Di had a great day... no stress at all... she is 'At Peace with doing applique'!!! wooohooo. According to Di, this pattern... I Know My ABC's from the people at Kids Quilts ... is much easier to do than Farmer Joe's Quiet book.

Peggy brought along this UFO... it had only needed the binding but, for some reason it was put to one side... who knows why we get so close to finishing projects and then leave them... It's done now though... Peggy chose a great stripe print binding and Lick-etty-Split, it was sewn on! 
Morning Josie really loves applique projects... She's done Poppies before... I guess that makes her an expert!! I think she said that this would be made into a cushion... but I aren't absolutely sure, time will tell... doesn't that beautiful Batik look great with my Linen blend from Moda!!!
