This week at Fairholme

Janice has been busy at the machine - the main fabric ('Hello Bear' 
designed by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics) in this quilt 
for her little grandson features all sorts of woodland creatures. The 
mushroom print will also be the backing.
In her second quilt top for the week, Janice used rich red, gingery 
browns in a simply pieced, but very effective design of large hearts. 
Miriam's latest original quilt design - she plans to write up
a tutorial for her blog, Sew Miriam. It is a good scrap buster,
using strip piecing, and the blocks are a no-waste design. The
construction method is easier than it looks - Miriam was able
to explain it in a few minutes - so watch out for the tutorial.
Jill's disappearing four patch for our community quilts
collection started with 5 or 6 blocks left over from a
quilt she made five years ago. 
Denise's applique cushion cover was also a slow burning
finish - it is a Wendy Williams pattern from several years ago.
Denise added the yellow to brighten it up - unusual
compared to most of Wendy Williams's designs now!
Helen complimented her pile of finished logs from our recent
'Logs and Ladders' workshop with some re-purposed log cabin
blocks in her stash, and a vibrant red sashing from the
community stash, to make a quilt for the community collection.
