Marilyn had the blocks for the body of her quilt nearly ready and had done a layoutand she worked on the last couple in classJo (reluctantly) made more of her stars and did a great job!Carole worked on more of her block, but we discovered she’s set the outer ring at the wrong measurement and it and the leaves have to come undone……”not happy, Jan”!!I showed Leanne how to inset the circle on one of her blocksand with that complete she started on one with lots of tiny piecesDenise enjoyed a little retail therapyin between stitching up one of her Mrs Peach blocks


Four students stayed all day:  Carylin has finished her Quiltmania BOM top and I think I’ve talked her into hand quilting it (!)she chose a backing for it from one of Carol’s new fabricsand worked on her latest block with a little retail therapy in between, finding the perfect “eye” for her bird from the purple fabricFernanda has a finish!  “Dancing Dollies” is all done, including a labeland she worked on the elements for her MSG “Elements” bagLyn tidied up the ends of her last (we hope!) table mat and as a reward turned a long scarf into a cowl – such a great idea, she thinks she’ll get more wear out of it this wayAnita joined us again having made some of her blocksand she cut and started prepping for the next setand the other students were also busy in the afternoon:  Tineke had finished her bag and she worked some more on her bird, getting to join some of the pieces together – the body is forming!Cheryl had done a lot on her bag piece, and added to it during classand she brought in this sweet swan doiley to showFrances worked on the last sets of her blocksand Jane valiantly started on the bias binding of the curved edges of her DWR – fear soon being overcome as it all seems to be working well!Meredithe x

  3. Beautiful work as ever.

  4. My goodness, what progress – and in particular, congratulations to the valiant Jane. It always takes a bit of extra oomph to begin something you fear will be especially challenging!
