A bit of box envy happened on Wednesday. Several people were quite taken with a couple of new boxes that appeared as bags were unpacked.
Paula had this box for her goodies
and she’s progressing well with her Double Irish Chain block
and Lois had this pretty box
with these blocks that have been resurrected for a gift quilt.
Sue 3 has been busy making flowers for her GBST borders, and by class end had all bar two of the centres appliquéd down.
Deirdre has gone back to her hand quilting and is progressing well.
Jenny had an EPP hexagon lesson,
Pearl has been making lots of blocks,
and Anne-Marie has roof, gable and nearly both birds buttonholed down.
Fiona has the first ninth of her “Star a Day” quilt complete
and as extra show and tell, Fiona brought her Mum, Jill, along; of course, Jill had her own show and tell – “Lucy Boston” blocks.
Josephine finished her star quilt, made up the backing and left it with Karen for quilting
and she’s also finished her other quilt top, although we decided to add another border (which will happen next time).
Sue 2 stitched on the third of eight sections for her “Emma Mary” quilt
These sweet little birdies keep popping up!
Marilyn has started a Liberty “Star a Day”,
Sue 1 cut background squares and prepped some of her pieces for appliqué,
Jane has another full DWR completed (26 to go!) and some more pieces stitched,
Alison started learning embroidery,
Carylin shocked us all with no show and tell (I had to sit down!) as she’s had quite a busy time on the domestic front, but made up for it in class with these
and in between lots of chat and teasing, Chris actually managed some sewing!
(Hee – getting my own back, Chris!)
