Sometimes our plans seem to veer a little off course. Last week Barbara managed to totally forget to show how to stitch Dresden Plates to a background, because (she says) everyone got so excited over Chris’s demo of Dresden Plate and fussy-cutting Kaleidoplates. So this week she backtracked and covered the basic applique stitch but that left less time for us to demo machine quilting, walking foot and free motion, and a little bit of hand quilting. And all this meant that we didn’t get time to take another look at everyone’s blocks and play around with settings. S0 – next week, our final week for this course, is going to be action packed with sashings, settings, borders and bindings!!
Margery has been working REALLY hard behind the scenes and we were all humbled jealous delighted to see her terrific quilt top –
We’re off to Quilter’s Trading Post in Whitchurch today to collect Chris’s quilt for Trentham/Uttoxeter/Quilts in the Garden, which means we will have a coffee and cake opportunity as well as retail therapy – what could be better?
