Stitching News

Princess Jackie is on another amazing quilt making roll
Seems everyone in her life is producing babies! ha ha ha. Jackie purchased this pattern online but she's changed a few things, to make it just right... isn't it fabulous!!

PM Pam added the border strips and declared her sampler quilt top finished... made while learning lots of things as Pam used her 'noggin'. The back will be pieced from any leftover batik fabrics... plus a little extra... The beautiful Batik fabrics play together so well together.

New Sue finished all the Pinwheel blocks she needed to get the right sized quilt and is in the process of making the side setting triangles, also using the Stack-n-Whack method... it's going to be lovey!

Jean Bean played free-motion embroidery...
 doodling all day long... look how lovely she made the Wisteria...
Look how lovely my Moda Linen blend fabric look as walls!

and here are all of Jean's house pieces ready to be built... Actually I think there will be more stitching done before the builders are needed... she loves playing!!
This will be a Housey Housey door stop, one day!
We will be programming another Housey Housey Doorstop workshop in the Autumn as so many people have told me that they want to play too! I'll let you know when I know because Sue needs to know first!

Gail is also making a sampler quilt using the Jelly Roll Sampler book... she says she didn't want to use her 'noggin' she's doing it my the book! 7 lovely pieced blocks here all from a Moda Jelly Roll... there was one other block... hiding in Gail's box!
This is Gail's fabulous and finished, very accurately pieced, gifting cushion... complete with covered zip in the back. Lovely bright fabrics from Makower... this is sure to be a winner! It's Toot toot toot time....
