A Colourful Day at Cutting Edge

There was the usual buzz about the room at today’s meeting and some fabulous and colourful work displayed.

There was a lovely collection of quilts to view. Kerry’s was not only colourful but the quilting was amazing!

Caroline produced a lovely baby quilt to show and cushion covers that had recently been finished

And Carol’s quilt had an eyecatching design and colour combination

Frances’ quilt demonstrated a wondeful skill in crazy patchwork with dazzling colours and design

Marie Showed a fabulous cushion using quilt as you go

Hillary was busy on cross stitch

And Julie – embroidery. She had been experimenting embroidering on paper that she had made

Maggie was busy making a fabric book using linen and vintage fabrics with beautiful embroidered work

And Jan had completed a piece of work that she had created at last weeks Dyeing to Paint – a wall hanging for a small window – beautifully crafted using a variety of techniques

Corinne’s carrier for her red work had been made from a sample she made at a quilt show – encased in a beautiful contrasting batik fabric.

In addition to all this lovely wok the Project Linus quilt was finished off with a label attacjed to the back and Liz and Chris put the finishing touches to the Cowbridge Commemorative quilt which will go on display on 30 October

As always a fun day with lots of chatter and good humour!

Sewing on a Rainy Summers Day

Lesley, Marie and Steph

There was much to admire today at Cutting Edge. Corinne, Keris, Fran and Jan were keen to show off the quilts they had made on Friday at a Gail Lowther workshop – and stunning they were too!

And it is important to mention here that Jan used some of the fabric that she had dyed at last week’s DtP session. They do look rather stunning – well done Jan!

Brenda and Truda were busy working on current projects. Brenda was reaching the end of sttiching a whole cloth quilt – her 5th! Truda was working on a beautiful cross stitch. She was very expertly creating it with silks from her stock in an effort to use them up and she was using 26 count linen!!!!

Glynis brought along a quilt she started in 2006. After recently completing it she has had it long arm quilted. She also brought along a quilt that she has recently made and machine quilted hereself – quite the expert! Obviously with time on her hands she had also produced a lovely bag

Hillary brought along three pieces of work. Chives painted with a toilet roll on hand dyed fabric – which look fab. She stencilled flowers onto another piece and hand embroidered them and she showed some parasols which she stencilled onto fabric using freezer paper – very cheerful and summery!

Salinder brought two beautiful quilts that she made a few years ago – giving a seaside theme with lighthouses on them…

She also showed the results of her ice dyeing and a piece of work in progress

and Gilly showed a quilt that she is completing and which has been beautifully quilted by a long arm quilter in Chepstow.

A wonderful show of talent – well done everyone. Looking forward to more of the same after the summer.

And great to see that some of the hand dyed fabrics and being used!
