Stitching News...

All Day Di's working on a set of four quilted cushions, all with this Nautical themed fabric... Making them as a gift, for gifting! A perfect idea... I think the cushions will be used in a caravan

Margaret is making a couple of special cushions for gifting... 
It's a tricky business making rectangular panels square!!
Each cushion will have a zipped back using my super easy method...

Sister Susie's Crossbody bag is coming along a treat... It's got a lot of personalised detail, especially on the inside! The secret is safe with me though... We can fudge our way out of most predicaments!

Fiona Too made her bag at the very same time. Don't they look very different!!
Fiona's Crossbody bag is going to be gifted... at least she's trying to stick to that plan... when we love the things we make, it's sometimes better to keep them eh!!! ha ha ha

Loulou couldn't be happier with her quilt... it's also been made for gifting, and what a treasure it is! Fussily cut border fabric frames the Kid's Quilts Owlie quilt pattern brilliantly, making it a great size... it was sandwiched and quilting was started.

Kate stitched the binding to her gifting quilt but the job of hand stitching it to the back will be done at home... in fact it's probably done by now!... Also being made for gifting, what a generous bunch of quilters we are!!

Sporty Sue got her quilt top bordered and ready for sandwiching... what a lot of beautiful fabrics!! Flying Geese in all sizes.. giant ones included... We discussed at length some fabulous quilting ideas... well, I did, Sue just laughed! ha ha ha

Lady Judith ran this quilt top up, Lick-etty-split. It's such a great design for a 'go to' kiddie quilt...Judith managed to find all of the fabrics in her ever growing stash... I hope you can see the lovely embroidered flowers too?
Annbacan found an easy way to manage quilting...
Don't use wadding... ha ha ha
It's not really a quilt, Ann's making a patchwork Duvet cover, so no wadding needed...
 it's just a case of stitching the two layers together before adding the back.

Barbara BEW needed to lay out her blocks to try to understand the 'On Point' setting... It gets me every time so, I always suggest we use a corner of a table and start from there... loving these fabric choices... They are from Art Gallery... scrummy.

Princess Jackie's bunny quilt, another being made for gifting. This is what Jackie was working on at our retreat recently... the quilting is coming along very nicely... In an older post (May 16th) you can see the old fashioned book Jackie used for the pattern... Amazing what a difference fabric choices make.

Jeannette Dilly enjoys a bit of tricky piecing... She is making the Allietare pattern from Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville and is loving the way it's making the secondary patterns... This will likely be another huge quilt, you know what Dilly is like!

Brenda Barbara spent her day quilting the first of her two, lovely gifting quilts.
She was working away in a window seat on a very hot and sunny day... with the quilt draped on her lap and all the sunshine, Brenda had a rosey glow! ha ha ha

This is another of Angela's quilts... she's the lady who will be teaching it for us and it's not me, ha ha ha. This lovely quilt shows you how your quilt could look in another colour way for our Block Of The Month project that gets underway today.
At 10:30 Angela will be in my shop to answer any questions you might have.
Now that is a long post!!!! I'm off to mop my brow!!! ha ha ha
