Class show and tell

Morning

Jo played with her Paisley pieces, decided on a design, started appliqueing them down and bought a little bit of fabric! 

 Beth has one of her borders appliquéd down  and in class she got a little carried away with her cutting out of the pentagon flowers and threw the excess into her tea instead of the rubbish bin!  Tea dying her fabric, perhaps?

 Marilyn played with her circles

  Carole was appliqueing the last of her borders 
 Denise was tracing, pressing and cutting out more woolly bits shapes    Sue E cut out the centre fabric for her pentagon flowers quilt, then cut and stitched on the borders; just the mitred corners to go.

 
Afternoon

Frances made another block for her Aunts Quilt

  Fiona joined us and wanted to try her hand at hand quilting; do you like the inadvertent smiley face I drew?  We added the eyelashes after seeing the smiley face!
 Cathie has all her rows made, so she cut, stitched and re-cut her sashing  pieces and started stitching the strips together   

Lyn stayed all day; she basted and quilted her table runner, then cut, made and attached the binding

 and she brought in her finished quilt to show us  It’s a lovely quilt and Lyn did such a great job with that binding, I defy you to find a join!

    May I come play? May I come play? May I come play? Such a broken record in my mind! Sigh! Would that it be possible! Double sigh!! In such awe of you and your stitching friends talents and color selections! Love the scraps in the tea. We have all been there!

    You know how we sewists have threads and snippets everywhere. They secretly fly and adhere to everything. A couple months ago my 90 year old father in law brought out a pair of his flannel underwear I had just laundered , folded, and put in his room. He asked, “how is this possible?” There they were…..stray threads and a couple small snippets on his UNDERWEAR. We all had a good laugh!

    I love the bits thrown in the tea – just the sort of thing that I would do when engrossed in my sewing! I love, love, love Lyn’s quilt, definitely this week’s star turn!!
