Stitching News

Let's start with a loud toot toot toot fanfare for Just Enda's finished and fabulous, festive tree skirt. She only started it last Monday and now it's done. A very clever design. Edna, If you read this, please share the pattern details... people will want to know!
Update... here's the link to the pattern Edna used Peppermint Swirl Christmas Tree Skirt
Thank You Edna,
Annbacan was very happy to announce that her 4 festive cushions are not only finished but they are fabulous and just in time to adorn the new sofa for Christmas. Actually... I think these are for someone else's sofa... Ann made her very own selection a few weeks ago. Confused? Me too! 

Norma has a long list of people wanting/needing lap quilts for their very own knees... As the cold weather bites it's wonderful to snuggle under a little quilty-ness. So, sandwich number one is ready and...

Norma's number two sandwich was all ready on Saturday and today, Monday, she stitched the binding in place as she's been quilting at home. 

Just Edna is making this lovely bright quilt for gifting... she's enjoying all the big, easy pieces after her double wedding ring marathon

What can you do with all the left over fabrics?
How about this fabulous backing...
Edna was kept busy all day.

Monday Sheila was ever so busy on her main project for most of the day. Then, later in the afternoon, she fancied a change... lick-etty-split... 4 festive bunting pillows were well on their way to completion... there will be probably be 20 cushions by next Monday!

Annbacan also started a new and festive Bunting Cushion... they are proving very popular. One word of small warning though, like a top tip! Ann cannot and will not, recommend using a Frixion Pen to draw her applique letters onto the sticky stuff... do you need to know why?

Our Carol wanted to make a festive wall hanging... influenced by Jean Bean's large festive quilt she had purchased this fabulous fabric from Henry Glass... tricky to cut up as it's got so many little details... So, just border it and call it done... perfect!

If anyone is interested the pattern was a freebie on the Moda site and was pretty easy to do.
