MY GROUP JULY 2017

We were very thin on the ground for this meeting which is a tad worrying as next year we are moving to new venue. I do hope the numbers will pick up or this could very well be the end of The Quilt Set. After going for 18 years I would be sad to see it end.

Due to the low attendance, there was not much for the Showtime – thankfully I had taken along the quilts I had made for my friend Angela who is collecting Hospital Quilts for a special reason. So sorry in advance as this is mainly my work…..

This is Bridget’s Quilt, she has been doing this quilt with the ladies for the whole of this year so it will be interesting when the ladies start to bring along their finished version, great job Bridget,,,

Bridget

Pretty little bag and it was little, made by Dee at Margaret’s group, I used to call these Dolly bags…..

Dee

Same design bag as Dee’s but this one made by Margaret, there are two pictures of it to show you the different sides….

This is a bag made for my friend Jean who asked me to make her a special bag to hold all her patchwork and quilting rulers, this is the back, showing the pockets for various sized rulers, The picture beneath this one is showing the front with its big long pocket for her long ruler, inside is a big square pocket for her square ruler…..My own design…

This pattern is called Jewel Box, I made it with Fossil Fern fabrics with a black background which makes the fabrics ‘zing’, beneath this picture is a close up of it…

This Quilt was a very old UFO of mine which I am happy to have finished, I think this is a keeper as I really like it, beneath this picture is a close up of it…

BACK AGAIN…

So nothing happened re the storm we were supposed to have had last night lots of lightning but nothing else, very strange no doubt our turn will come…

So back to my pictures, I left last night after loading all the pictures from my group but I am going to put the last few up again as I was unable to comment on them, so just bear with me folks….

Cute chicken made from Hexagons, I think it is a doorstop….

The chicken was kept in this bag, far too nice for it I think…

A fun strippy quilt made by Bridget, love this design….

Full quilt and a close up of quilt, sorry I cannot remember who made this one either, it looks very complicated so hat’s off to the maker….

This is the back of a quilt made by Annette, it was a BOM {Block of the Month} she purchased at the Festival of Quilts 7 years ago, she has finally finished it, she did ask me to quilt it for her but I said no as how else is she to learn FMQ?

It was worth waiting 7 years for this beauty Annette….

Various bits and bobs I have been working on, if you hover over the picture you ‘should’ see what it is for….

 

My Grand daughter Rebecca came up for a day last week and sorted my fabric cupboard out for me, it was in a bit of a mess I can tell you but she had every box out and tidied it all up, labelled every box for me so I can see at a glance what is in that particular box, well, just look, I am thrilled with the outcome….

and the inside of the cupboard now looks lovely….

Thank you Rebecca xxxxx

MIXED BUNCH

As I once again haven’t been on here for a while I am just going to probably post all the pictures I should have put on here with possible captions, who knows. It’s if I remember folks….

This was a very old UFO I found to finish, I have as yet got to take a picture of the finished quilt……

This is a fabulous cross stitch picture of the lovely Audrey Hepburn done by my beautiful Grand daughter, Rebecca…..

I belong to several groups on Facebook, in this particular group you are asked/invited to make an FMQ Sampler of the lady who runs it designs, well, you know me I just had to change the layout, I do like to be different I cannot help myself, this is ongoing…..

 

When the dreadful tragedy happened in Manchester, a call went out for quilts, and I am thrilled to say some of the ladies in my own Facebook group stepped up and made the blocks – 99 of them – and we made a quilt together, so proud of the ladies…..

This is the finished Quilt ready to go to Manchester…..

I treated myself to some new fabrics, fabricsagogo, extremely helpful lady as I had no idea what I wanted but she helped me and I chose these…..

Finally as there are a lot of pictures to it, the showtime from my JUNE Quilt group’s meeting….. Enjoy

I will try to catch up with the rest tomorrow evening, it looks as though we are in for a storm so am shutting down pdq……
