Canadian Smocked Cushions

Caroline taught the Thursday Textile Class how to make
the circular Canadian Smocked Cushions the other week,
see post and how to make them HERE
and here are some of the finished cushions.
They have been so popular. 
The only thing we have all found is the time 
it takes you to mark the grid out!
Well done Caroline for such a successful class.
They are wonderful and every fabric makes a completely 
different effect. We can also spot whose is whose by the colour.
Liz loves Poppies!

Cushions and Blocks

The last Textile Tuesday and Thursday of the month
I teach a block pattern. How to cut, put together and
the variations it can be used in.
The 'Block of The Month' is Star Blocks.
As you can see above they have been used by Muriel
to make a selection of cushions and these have been 
given as gifts.
The Star Blocks below were made by Carol and Sandra.
To see more cushions click the written labels below.

Janets Fan Quilt

It was so lovely laying out Jane's Fan Quilt she is making
for her grand daughter. To see the pattern and full 
effect of the Fairy Border was lovely.
Just the binding to add and the addition fan quilting.
Well Done Janet.
