Afternoon

Four students stayed all day…….

Linda was wearing a new cowl she’d knitted (and she did tell me where it was from but because I didn’t write it down it’s gone from the memory!!)and in class we worked together on the pentagon flowers for the centre of her “Frances Quilt”, judiciously hiding a stain on the cloth that won’t comeand, after going to the hand quilting session with Judy Newman at our recent foray at the Treehouse Textiles day, she was keen to have a go at hand quilting the Judy Newman way.  Between us we remembered the technique and Linda is delighted with the result!Carylin has just the last side to pin and stitch with her hexagon setsLyn started stitching the pieces together for a table runnerand Fernanda spent the morning cutting squaresand making Evening Starsto go into her quilt, pieces of which she started to stitch together in the afternoonand with the other students, Helen brought in her finished quilt that she and I designed togetherand she bagged and started machine quilting her table runnerFrances has nearly finished adding the baby pom-poms to her “France Quilt”and together we chose some fabrics for a new quiltCathie had stitched all her blocks together and we chose border, backing and binding fabricsand in class she was hand stitching a binding down on a baby quiltJane started her “Sweet Sundayaddiction journeyand Cheryl and I had a refresher on some embroidery stitches for her “Pele Meleand as a thank you to Cheryl for the eggs the previous week, I made another sponge cake, this time with 2 duck eggs and 2 hen eggs.  It wasn’t as light as the first one, but it was more moist – all down to the baker, I’m sure – learning every time!  (I didn’t beat the whites for as long and left it in the oven for a few minutes too many, me thinks)  Nevertheless it disappeared!Meredithe x

    Hi Meredithe, can you tell me what’s so special on the Judy Newman way of quilting? I notice that the Sweet Sunday quilt is very popular with your students. That quilt also gives many possibilities.🤗

    They all look wonderful projects and what a nice day it sounds – pure indulgence playing alongside with likeminded people – and cake too!

  3. That cake does look like a splendid reward for all of the hard work being put in!
