Stitching News

Toot tooooot-toot-etty-toooooooot
Margaret's fabulous and finished Noah Quilt
Absolutely spot on... a new grandbaby came recently... he's also called Noah
A perfect combination!

Jeannette Dilly was very smart and cunning... she chose to use a Moda Ombre Grey fabric for her blocks... it looks like she purchased at least 49 different shades of grey!!! ha ha ha... bet you thought I would say 50?

Carol finished her lovely, quilted, sewing station tidy mat... complete with pockets. A fanfare is needed. toot toot toot... She made a little thread catcher and a pin cushion with some of the bits of fabric she had left over. The pattern for this Sewing Machine Desk Tidy was in a magazine recently and some of the other ladies have asked Carol to run a workshop so they can make one too.
The first Mat requires lots of bits of fabric so Carol made another using just the three so it will work out more economical... darn it!!! ha ha ha, I am a quilt shop and we keep trying to save you money!!!... the workshop will be on Saturday 8th October and, which ever one you choose to make I am sure you will find it very useful... and your sewing machine will look very smart!
