Stitching News With Tooting

Sporty Sue, in between being very sporty indeed, has completed one quarter of her Trip Around The Batik World... of the sewing journey... not running variety. This quilt is going to have a punch of dramatic Wow me thinks!! Like I said... this is only one quarter so there are three more of these to make.

Speaking of WOW... Princess Jackie is ready for a toot toot fanfare for her fabulously-fabulous and finished, wall hanging sized, quilt... with Faux Piped Binding to finish it off perfectly. There's a lot of tiny detail and hand stitched embroidery embelishment in this project... and WOW is The right word!!

I'm not sure whether you know (ha ha ha!) we went to Westhope Collage for a wonderful long weekend retreat recently... I might have mentioned it? Maybe once or twice... While we were there, PM Pam was scrounging our scraps of fabric... now we know why... she made a Westhope Memory Cushion, a lembrancinha. 

PM Pam has made a start on festive stitching too.. after declaring there were only 25 Tuesdays until Christmas... click here to scare your very own self... Only 24 Tuesdays now Pam.... but you do have a fabulous festive finish so, toot toot toot

PM Pam again? Yes... another toot toot toot is required for Pam's fabulous and finished alphabet Kiddie Play Mat style of quilt... I hope you can see the quilting? If we shadow quilt around letters, lots of them are reversed on the back, so...

We had the cunning idea of quilting only guided by the numbers and letters... making funny/unusual shapes instead... doesn't it look great on the back? As is usual with lots of my very own lovely customers... Pam made good use of her left over fabrics toot toot toot Pam.

Fran Cupcake is ever so good at quirky work... Guided by her trusty Janet Clare book she made all of these blocks with a certain little lady in mind... all of her favourite things are in the blocks, just wonderful!... now ready for sandwiching so Fran can have fun quilting it.

Woop woop!!!! Gail had enough blocks to start joining them together!!
I think Gail thought the day would never come... ha ha ha. No trimming of blocks was necessary because Gail has made every block perfectly... she found that hard to believe but it is true!
