Here are some of the things we worked on during our last sewing day for this year ...
|A thrifty mother kept the wild-west cotton fabric left from |
her son's long-ago bedroom curtains, and gave it to
one of our members ...
|... so we backed it with this fun print from the stash and |
made two reversible wholecloth kids' quilts.
|We buy batting in large rolls, and economise further by sewing |
the offcuts together to make it go as far as it can.
|We basted a number of quilts, including this one for Helen , |
with a two-part backing to compliment it's predominantly
red and blue top.
|There are three quilts here, cut from two different lengths of |
vintage-style 'cheater' prints, kindly donated, and with borders
added by Dawn.
|Laura has kindly quilted them on her long-arm machine ...|
|... with oak lives and vine ...|
|... and a very cute apple design on this one.|
|We backed them with a sale fabric we bought in an end-of-bolt |
sale, that suited the vintage look of the tops.
|Elaine W worked on her current community project, that |
will have this pretty Dresden plate as its centre.
|We found a length of a soft blue and cream floral backing |
for a quilt made by Barbara, and basted it ready for quilting.
