Showers of Makes for April

Josie finished her magnificent Kaffe Fassett fabric quilt...

We had a flood of fabulous cushions in for our tombola stall at our July show.




Two table runners

More handy tote bags

A set of nifty bags








Above a couple of carrier bag caddies and, below, Fun Stress Buster Crazy Dolls.... not for children!

Here's the tag with the full explanation of the dolls
Handy mini aprons holding pen and notebooks to hang in the kitchen or by the phone. 
The idea came (with thanks) to the ladies of Huyton Quilters at their recent exhibition I visited. I was kindly given permission to use their idea and in return they will use my Dammit Dolls.
Around the room at our meeting, busy fingers were making a variety of items.




Beautiful beaded and embroidered collar by Mo

More Marvellous March Makes!

It's all happening! We have booked our exhibition for July, sent off advance notices to magazines and the Quilters Guild so now we are really pulling out all the stops to make items to exhibit, or for our sales table and the tombola. 
It's really exciting to see the variety of makes at "Show & Tell" each meeting.
Time flies and we need every spare minute we have to create a really worthwhile, creditworthy show.
Members have really risen to the challenge so, well done and thanks to all.
Save the dates and join us for a great welcome at our special event. 
Details will remain at the end of each post from now until the show.
Here is another wonderful array for this week.

Pat Mc has nearly finished a really pretty small quilt. Lovely floral fabrics and colour palette.
Two fantastic bags made by Mo. One shopper and one handbag sized.
Jo made several patchwork clocks.
and an apron made from scraps, to wear at the exhibition.
Cushions galore came in and we already have a stock of around 70 towards our target of 100 towards the tombola.
Three from Lorna
From Caroline
From Marie
The next two were made by Jo but the hand embroidered centre panels were kindly donated by a friend's late sister Evelyn. 
One panel is Edinburgh Castle.
The other is Shakespeare's birthplace.
Also from Jo, 4 hand stitched hexigon cushions.
Any one for tea and cakes? A great apron made by Caroline
Two lovely table runners from Irene and dozens of super key rings
Marie made lots of small items including these tea cosies, which she modelled with Irene!!! Nice but nutters! 


Plant pot pin cushions from Marie will be a real novelty and these two fashionable Rag Bags will suit the trendy young girls.

Great Quilty Makes for March - Show & Tell

A bright start for March, by Pat B, with this fabulous, vibrant, quick quilt made from random length 2.5 inch strips and contrasting 2.5 squares. Such a good way to use up remnant fabric with a great result.



















The backing was well selected by Pat.

Lorna has been really industrious making a great collection of attractive handy bags towards our exhibition sales table.




Joan completed the very first bag she has ever made and showed us this fabulous tote in a really amazing fabric. 
Caroline has been doing well making "Rob Peter to Pay Paul" blocks which will be made into cushions for our tombola stall.
Jo has started making cushions from the arrow blocks she made from strip scraps and here's the first one completed.
Jo also started Block of the Week, but really didn't enjoy making them, so this one and only result was made into yet another tombola cushion.
Jo recently found this, long lost panel, half made and has at last finished it. Lots of detail for "Penelope Patchwork" for her crafty trips! Spot the tiny pencil and ruler in her pocket and that bag full of Liberty fabric.

Well done to all group members, keep up the good work. It's only just under 5 months to our exhibition and we need much more lovely makes for it to be a success.
