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.

The 2010/11 Quilting Season Begins!

Skye Quilters Meeting

A busy start to a new quilting season, with 26 people at the meeting. A warm welcome to newcomer Claire and visitor Sue from ‘down south’.

For the first project of the new quilting season, Jennifer demonstrated how to do create interlocking squares.

Detail of the machine quilting on Irene de Plano's quilt; note how it's sewn up one side of a row of triangles and down the other.

If you browsed through the lovely logcabin book Lin had but forgot to take a note of the details, it’s called Making Connections, by Janet Rae and Dinah Travis.
