Class show and tell

Last week at Sewn and Quilted……


Jennifer had finished the binding on her quilt (the colours are much stronger than the photo – the backing is a deep mustard)

and in class she learnt a little more about hand piecing, using the block book she made in class a couple of weeks ago

Jo had her borders pieced together, so we pinned two of them in place ready for her to sew at home and add the other sides

and for the rest of class she was making stars

Sue E has made lots of stars too, and we started a layout so she can sew them together

Carole has just one more border to complete

and Cathie pieced and stitched one of her side borders in place


Cheryl brought in some really delicious mini macaroons to celebrate my birthday – so lovely, thanks Cheryl! And with that sweet start to the afternoon……

Lesley had finished sewing her hexie blocks together and has machine appliqued them to a border

Lesley has been fortunate to inherit LOTS of d’oyleys from mothers, grandmothers and aunts and we had a discussion on what sort of quilt(s!) she could make using them

This small selection is housed in this gorgeous d’oyley container

and in class Lesley was sewing down a binding for a triangle quilt

Cheryl and I started her cutting adventure with this kit

and Frances sewed together quite a few of her blocks while I played with sets for her

    I have a huge box of old doilies and handkerchiefs from my family. I want to make a quilt but am afraid to cut into them and ruin them. Could you please share some of your ideas on using them.

  2. What a wonderful selection of projects in progress!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
