Remember this lovely from last week? Lyn made it, with its matching cushion cover as a birthday quilt for her little Grandie in
Lyn was busily stitching down the binding on the matching cushion cover with a bit of a sigh of relief this arvo, just a few more stitches and these two special birthday pressies will be winging their way to their lucky recipients.
While chatting about what a lovely idea it is to make a matching cushion cover, Lyn fessed up that not only do the Grandies get matching cushions for their quilts, they also often get extra cushions, it's just one of the things they love about visiting Gran, taking home another cushion to layer on the bed or to play with, their theory - 'Can't have too many cushions Gran'.
Sue will be presenting a dyeing class in a couple of weeks time, so of course fabric dyeing is rather on everyone's mind.
Denise found this fab example of a tie dyed dress 'at the back of the wardrobe' and decided to give it an outing just to take us all down memory lane, to that place where we all had a tie dyed outfit or two, clothed the kids in tie dyed T-shirts or gave tie dyed articles as gifts, every piece was different and all were a work of art & love.
What isn't showing in the pic is the bodice is trimmed with cotton lace and ribbons, very feminine.
Back at the beginning of the Christmas break Sue wanted a project to keep her fingers busy, preferably one she could take along with her on visits and excursions, she also wanted to trim down on her scrap bag stash, all in all, she thought this pattern from an old quilting magazine would be just perfect! and so it has been.
