Wednesday 30th April

Note to all, the Caverswall Quilt Cave WILL BE OPEN on Wednesday the 7th May due to popular demand :)

All the ladies who went to the Uttoxeter Quilt Show wanted me to tell you what a wonderful time they had, and by the sounds off thing they had very heavy bags to carry!!!

Well back to Caverswall and we are all glad to be back after our week off, lets see what these talented bunch have been up to.

Well we have a toot toot for Wendy she has named this Quilt "A tribute to great Dixter" this is a beautiful Bargello Quilt made for her lucky Daughter.

Another fabulous bag from Wendy, she says this will probably end up as another raffle prize for the pensioners bingo raffle :) 

Annette has just finished putting the binding on her lovely rail fence quilt and will just have to hand sew the binding to the back to finish. The dark browns really help the pattern to stand out.

Irene is making these small blocks to make a rag quilt, she is quilting each block and then will sew them together with the 'snipped' edge peeping out to give it the rag effect, she got this beautiful fabric from the highlands on her holiday. lucky girl!

Another stunning Dresden Plate cushion for Marilla, this one has a 3D effect on her sunflower petals and is all hand sewed!

We are all delighted to have Maggie back from her little break, today she has been working on this lovely Katharine Guerrier Scrap Quilt, and the colour fabrics she has chosen really complement the pattern, when this is finished she will be putting it in her bedroom :)

Margaret has been fiddling in her bits box (as we do!) and she found these blocks, so she is planning to turn them in to a double sided cover for her cooker hob!

It's never to early to get a start on those Christmas projects, Chris is making these beautiful table runners as a commission and all the proceeds are going to her local church. :)

Have I saved the best till last? Arty Beryl has been adding to this wonderful creation all day with fancy stiches and different textured fabric, I can't wait to see it finished.
And me, I have been cutting pieces to make princess party bags! as they are still in bits I also created this pretty little flower.
Well that's it for today, be safe and hope you visit us next week
