Stitching News

Brenda Barbara has been working on this little wall hanging for a few weeks, the pieces are tiny which made it a bit tricky to place each detail in the correct position. Made with Beautiful Batik fabrics.... it's almost finished with just the hand stitching on the binding to be done.

This is another one of Judy's little quilts. She purchased a book of what I call 'Inchy Paper' (it's 12" square graph paper sheets in inches!) from my shop a few weeks ago so now she gets out her new colouring pencils and makes up her own designs, she's having such fun.

PM Pam is using up her strip shaped scraps to make these Quilt-As-You-Go blocks. She will be demonstrating them next week at Uttoxeter Quilt Show, we have a demo table again for using up your scraps... Hope you get to visit this year?

At the very same time, Pam is still making up little gifting quilts for the premature baby unit. She has quite a pile now. For a little rest from piecing, Pam decided to do an applique block, this will be a little quilt centre, cute eh! 

Rose made this lovely cushion for gifting to a rather romantic couple... It says it all with those two cute, little cats hugging... then the hearts around the border too... gushing! Pattern purchased during a Quilt show a while ago, She's ever so chuffed with the result.

Princess Jackie is also making a gifting quilt. Usually, we'll find Jackie appliqueing intricate little bits but this time she's challenged herself to to a bit of Proper Patchwork, Jackie's very own words.... success! Can you remember those Rhubarb and Custard sweets?? just saying, he he he

New Sue is trying to use up some of her scrap stash. She's given loads of it Pam and still she has enough for scrappy block making... these blocks will be made into a very modern quilt from the Jen Kingwell book, Quilt Lovely.
