Hi Jayne,

Hugs from me to add to your collection,

Sorry to hear that your skin is suffering now. I wonder if cotton gloves might help to protect the skin on your hands? I have had hand eczema for about 6 years and I do find that wearing them helps me. Not sure if I can advertise here but I buy mine from 'the healthy house' via the internet.


Best wishes

Hi KayKay,

i bought a metal hexagon template and used a scalpel ( medical instrument ) to cut round it. I used old magazines and cut several layers at a time. Don't use paper that is too thick or you'll make your fingers sore pushing the needle through.

have fun

Good morning and thank you Rosemary I think you have also managed to solve my latest conundrum regarding sashing around quilt as you go blocks. Glad I logged on. Milk but no sugar for me.

I have just returned from the Kaffe Fassett exhibition at Bath. Wonderful, enjoyed every single bit of it. We also had chance to look around the main museum including some of their quilt collection. Fantastic day.

It's just 6 for me (second time around) but everyday has been wonderful.

Just thought I'd have a peep at this old thread to see how everyone got on last year. Some fantastic work. Hope this year is as productive.

Hello all,

I joined in last year and did one of the early slots (we did an hour each). The quilt I started was finished off for one of our club challenges ( new technique) and eventually sold at a Macmillan coffee morning.

That's what I call killing THREE birds with one stone. Count me for whatever is decided.

image.jpgI hear what you say about the bobbins. I've just finished this quilt, jelly roll and charm pack, both raffle prizes bits from my stash, wadding bought for another project but not used, backing is an old duvet cover, all threads were odds and ends, the only thing I had to buy was the binding. It was just a practice piece but I decided to finish it and use it as a quilt in the garden......

Beautiful Simone,

thrilled to bits to see you used both my curved seam blocks in the finished quilt.

Just thought I'd add my two pennyworth......

Over the last few years I've only ever used washed cotton with cotton thread and cotton backing with 80/20 wadding.


I am just finishing a quilt using a jelly roll and charm pack, neither of which I can wash, plus some cotton from my stash which has been washed. The wadding is synthetic and the backing is an old poly cotton duvet cover. The whole thing has been pieced and quilted using a large assortment of ends of reel threads some cotton some polycotton.

It is going to be used in the garden and WILL be machine washed.

Watch this space.

Brilliant, well done girls. I've been reduced to tears by a piece of granite.

My husband was born in Lockerbie so you can imagine how proud we both are.

Looking forward to the men's match tomorrow.

Ah back to the sewing

Ah bliss..............

Quilting and watching the curling on my ipad. I think my lines are echoing the hammers.
