Remember the homework June sent the 'Hidden Wells' group home with last week?, well some people just didn't know when to stop!
Maree was so excited by the way her colours were coming together, she completed her quilt, and as you can see from the block in her hand, she is off and running on quilt number two. As June said, we were all warned, this is a very addictive little quilt pattern!
Wendy was another one who didn't know when to stop, she has half her blocks assembled...
or just hiding from the Camera?
Lorraine has a very handy 'Hidden Wells' hint, stitch pairs of your completed and squared stage 1 blocks together with 1/4" seams all round
One of our groups Christmas presents to Sheila year before last was a lovely Jelly roll, her first. The Jelly roll was much admired and petted by family members, but one lassie in particular just fell in love with the colours. A search of patterns on the net and Sheila created this lovely.
Maree has recently returned from a trip to visit her Daughter and Family. Daughter is a mad keen convertible fan, and can be seen whizzing around town in a little black number. After a few trips in said machine Maree thought a jazzy little cap would be the go and so created this wonderful little number. We all want one!, but sadly, don't qualify, not a convertible in sight in our collective garages.sigh!!.
Lorraine has finished quilting 'Friendship Forever', one of our raffle quilts for the Quilt Show in July, but wanted a volunteer to help bury the quilting threads. Lorraine has a Janome with that ever so handy little button that does a couple of 'tying off' stitches, so threads don't have to be tied, only buried. Andrea agreed to help out using the K Grace Howes thread burying method and found that the method wasn't that well known within the group (Must have been Andrea's secret - no one else had come across it).
So, just because it is sooo, sooo easy here is a couple of piccies to give you a rough idea of how it is done, for an in depth tutorial, waddle your mouse up to the top of our page, click on Tips, Handy Hints and Good Ideas, slide down the page to 'burying threads' and follow the links to RedBarn Studios and the Burying Your Quilting Threads Video Tutorial
Dont'ch just love the net?!, all that sharing and knowledge available with just a click of a mouse.
