Sydney Southern Cross Quilters - Patchwork and Quilting
09 October 2016
Busy busy busy... Those who come to the Pub never have idle hands that's for sure... well it does happen occassionally but not often and not yesterday!
Jenn tells me it's not her fault she's making this quilt, it's Selina's fault :-) I'm glad they both are, the quilts they make always bowl me over.
This photo below is of Sel's quilt... I had to look carefully but yes these two quilts are the same pattern, just very different colours. I wonder if I need to make one like this.
Jenny spent her day taking out the papers from the back of this wonderful to be quilt, she had all the strips sewn and over two days she spent her time pulling the paper off, didn't matter if she was in a bus, in a train or where ever, if there was a spare moment Jenny whipped out her strips and pulled paper...
Still lots of strips to go but only about a quarter of what she's made.
Here's the pattern Jenny made up so when her strips are sewn together they will look like this... it's a Christmas Theme, isn't it magic! Wow!
Joy was binding, binding and binding... just wait till you see what she's binding in the Show and Tell section.
I love this block... I love fussy cutting... I actually love both fussy cutting and sewing. Can't wait to see more Kate! I wonder how many blocks you are making.
Kathleen was funny, she won hands down for the competition of working on the oldest UFO! She started this crochet in 1970... that's 46 years ago... hang on she doesn't even look 46, check out her photo in the photo section :-) The pattern came from an old Women's Weekly magazine. Kathleen had forgotten how to crochet but she knew there were plenty of Happy Hookers who came to the Pub and Michelle was only too happy to instruct. That's what we do best!
Below are Kathleen's two finished squares.
Kathleen showed me these sewing machine attachments that make sewing blocks like this an absolute breeze... I'd love to see her do one.
Lisa's handwork looked amazing, she was folding these delicate squares of fabric and pinning them... I wonder what she's up to!
Liz has done quite a bit of sewing on this interesting piece hasn't she. Liz uses thread striped from similar shiny fabrics... the patience she must have! Although we do know Liz has a lot of patience having seen the wonderful stitchery she makes.
I do love fussy cutting and this block of Lynette's is just fantastic. She's making more using the fabrics below... I do hope she brings more of them along to the pub another day!
I just couldn't help it... I had to take a photo of these, my clips are just a boring silver but Lynne's clips are Aussie Clips!!
Michelle is on a roll with another crochet blanket...
Penny working on her Boston... dang I've forgotten the name of this quilt... Boston something... you all know though don't you! I remembered it myself! Lucy Boston! :-)
Gosh Robyn does some wonderful applique, I wonder what this quilt will look like one day.
I was fluffing around with this doll and her doll, trying to knit the hair then the trousers for Grandchild #8's Baby Naming next Saturday... I hope I get them finished in time.
