The Knotty Girls Stitching Bee met this week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Sherri sent around an e-mail the previous week telling us that someone was generously donating her Sundae Glassware (I’m sorry but I forget who brought those in) so we could make pincushions and included a list of the items needed to make them.

Above is Colleen’s pincushion. She wants you to know that the rubber bands will come off once the glue has dried. These pincushions are just darling. (click on picture for closer view)

Betty Pritchard (above) worked at her hand stitching during the Bee. Her quilt is made of flannel so it was rather thick to stitch through, but she is doing great work. It is so much fun to sit around and stitch and gab and get to know each other. Isn’t it wonderful making quilting friends!
Sarah over at the Last Piece has a pictorial in free form curvy piecing. This technique seems very complex, but give it a go with some scrap first and you'll soon see it's not nearly as hard as it looks!

Until next time,

Those pincushions are just wonderful! I love the button storage underneath! That is also a pretty quilt Betty is working on. Couldn't imagine hand quilting through flannel!

That looks like fun, Caroll. I'll have to join you girls one day.
