Stitching News

Luna Twearly loves reds, in particular the French General Reds. She's decided to make blocks... all sizes and any design she fancies. All the blocks will be based on 3 and multiples of 3. There will be mathemisms involved... 3 makes that a little bit easier... she's enjoying the challenge, so far.

Merrily is making up this wall hanging. it's a pattern found in a quilting magazine, I think it's British Patchwork & Quilting actually. Not a recent edition, one that Merrily decided to keep in her 'To Do' pile. The Carp have been stuffed with wadding, they look real!

Sporty Sue needs 40cm of borders to be added to each long side of her giant pinwheel quilt... Art Gallery Solids are so very vibrant and play with the Kaffe fabrics very nicely... there is a plan and it involved Clever Mr Black! 

Kate's Lynda purchased a bag of scrap strips recently, I think from Malvern Quilt Show. The strips are just the trimmings from the shop cutting Layer Cake style pre-cuts. Nevertheless, they are wonderful and bright so Lynda made a Quilt-As-You-Go bag with another one prepped... now we all want one!!

Nuttie Nutter added this delightful border to her bright Birdie table topper... with a little quarter inch inner border of a vibrant striped fabric... The backing has been chosen already, so a sandwich making session is iminent. 
On Saturday this week, 15th June, there's another chance to start the Bargello Wall Hanging... It's always a WOW, how clever is that!!! workshop!!
These are two projects from the last workshop...

I will do my best to remember to take pictures!! I promise.
