In class this week::
Sue 1 had beautiful fabric from her recent trip in France,
which included a bird she can use to great effect in her Mrs Billings (much to her chagrin – she’s like Helen and doesn’t like birds on fabric, but how could you pass up this result??!!)
Sue 2 is starting on the basket quilt from Threadbear
Bonnie was cutting diamonds for her Sarah Fielke quilt
and has strips cut and ready to stitch together into stars
and Jill has decided to make pillow cases from the left overs of her last quilt…… this is the start.
We were very spoilt in class with a visit from Effie who has just finished appliqueing this stunning quilt top, a reproduction of one from the V & A.
Truly a master piece which has taken some time to do, and which she’s now going to hand quilt!
In the afternoon, my friend Maree called in to show me her quilt top, which has undergone a few fabric changes and looks so much better now, with the added raspberry
It’s HUge! so I couldn’t spread it right out……
and it came for its visit in this gorgeous bag….
And I have another quilt to bind. Decided on a scrappy binding. Went a bit overboard ensuring I’d have enough……. all this is the left overs!
Almost enough for another quilt!
