Show and tell

Saturday saw the last of this months ‘Block of the Month’ classes. This month Chris has been teaching cutting strips and squares, using a rotary cutter and ruler. With four patterns to choose from the results have been fantastic.

Jessica has joined her Mum for this course, Jess is 13 and was one of our ‘little stitchers’ last Summer. It’s so lovely to see a young person really enjoy sewing and I’m sure we’ll see some fabulous things from Jess – she had a little play with one of her units in the afternoon and made it into a coaster.

Next month’s classes will be looking at half square triangles – I look forward to sharing the results with you.

A couple of weeks ago our Friday morning ‘Sew Social’ group had asked me if I’d show them how to do the ‘Trip around the World’ technique, which I was happy to do and this week we saw some near completed quilt tops.

Ruth was unsure of the lay-out for her quilt….

So we put it to the vote and decided on Option 2.

It’s the first Staffordshire Patchworker and Quilters meeting  of the new year on Thursday (2nd Feb) I will be the meetings trader, I shall be bringing lots of sale pieces so be prepared to grab some bargains,but if there’s anything you’d like me to bring please let me know, I’ll be happy to help.

Look forward to seeing you there.                                                                                                                  Jane x
