Log Cabin

Pitch and Stitch was very busy - with a few of us putting the finishing touches to our bears!  Mine still needs a face but I'll take a picture when he's done.
We are also finishing putting together the sampler quilt for the series of classes starting on the 21st March - Sandra's done a really good job designing it, and it covers so many different techniques including stitchery, applique and piecing.  Just got a couple more bits to do then I'll put up a picture of it.

Finished the Log Cabin quilt top we'll be making in the workshop on Wednesday 22nd February - there are still places if you want to come along.  Log Cabin is really quick and easy to do - I managed to make 4 blocks in two (very much interrupted) hours - so it should grow very quickly working undisturbed in the workshop.

I added a border to make it a bit bigger and to use up some of the left over fabric.

Pauline's quilt is now completely finished and we think it looks really lovely.  Pauline planned it and selected all the fabric and embellishments, and had started most of the blocks.  It is based on the Anni Downs' Angel quilt, but Pauline made it for her little princess of a grand-daughter, so instead of wings and haloes, all the figures have little crowns!  Five of us worked on finishing the blocks and then after we'd put it all together we had it professionally quilted at Fir Tree Quilting, and then we did the last bit of hand-quilting around the pictures.

Very pretty!

I also received a photo from Christine Brewster showing the sort of things we will be making when she comes to us on the 28th June:
Tempted?  - We have already taken quite a few bookings for this class so take care you don't miss out!
