Gals been stitchin' beautiful quilts

Lots of lovely quilts at the Cottage, all captured by Lainey who also sent the stories for you all to enjoy!  Thanks Lainey.

Betty has been clearing out her stash since moving house.
She says that this has hardly put a dent in it but she promises to keep on working at it.

 Julie has been stitching these gorgeous little shapes together. Estelle taught us how to do them a few years ago. They are a great way to use the last of some really lovely fabric. She now has a set of good looking place mats.

 Sue has been cutting out more toiletry bags for us to sew. She thought it might be useful to show how they are put together  and demonstrated by wearing one on her head. Not really sure why as the bag wasn’t big enough to cover her completely.

 Karen has been working on this lovely Bronwyn Hayes kit. She played around with placement of the blocks and changed the original layout. She also changed the border fabric but the effect is magnificent. 

 Val has been hard at work creating monsters. They are friendly, happy looking ones though.

 Val made this stunner from some leftovers of a quilt she made some years ago featuring sashiko embroidery. You must admit the fabric is far too good to leave in the drawer. I think this one will be for sale at our Christmas Fair. Come early.

Sue doing a Foo impersonation. This lovely crazy patch is from Sue’s stash and sewn quilt as you go. I didn’t photograph the back but each square has a different pink backing.

 This lovely is from Janice. She has made this rag quilt from some truly good looking flannels. Some extra layers were put around the edge to really fluff it up. This quilt is available for sale in the Atrium Gallery at the Craft Cottage.
