A Quilt for Christmas

No excuses about not having time to make a Christmas quilt in time… Pat machine-stitched this Christmas quilt in a week, from the pattern in the latest issue of Patchwork & Quilting magazine.

Mitred Corner Meeting

A busy meeting with quite a few Christmas projects on the go. Jenny demonstrated how to do mitred corners on a border, and as a binding using a continuous strip. A tip on cutting the two ends of a mitre strip the right way: visualize the shape of a roof!

Jenny brought in her quilt from the Terrance Challenge 2010, called Pipe Mania.

Jelly Roll Folded Log Cabin Meeting

Jenny’s project this week was a brown-and-cream folded log cabin quilt from a Bali Pop. That is a jelly roll of batiks, folded instead of rolled. Or in plain English, 40 strips each 2½” wide and 44″ long.

Wrapping Paper Bag Meeting

A quiet meeting, with barely a dozen of us. No doubt the after-effect of Sunday night’s wild weather and the snow on the Cuillan.
