Craftymaster90 and Yurtle recently completed these two latest patches!
I also know that Anna Marie (amneufeld) has completed the Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres patch but she forgot to take a photo of it before she sent it off to Faewren! So, a picture of that will hopefully be coming soon.
On another note, due to some people’s real life situations, we could not get all the patches done in the time we wanted to. So, again, we are in need of stitchers who are willing to help!

Well, there’s been a bit of time passed since the last completed patches and it almost seems like nothing’s happening…but I know that people are stitching when (and where) they can!
Hoping to see the first completion from HeathyChan in the next few days – she’s given me a sneak preview of her Magnemite/Magneton and I can say it’s looking excellent! She only started stitching in April, but she’s taken to it really quickly! 😀
Brityboo‘s Bulbasaur evolution set is coming along very well, too, and that will look great when done.
I’m working on Tentacool/Tentacruel (or I would be, if I wasn’t posting this!) – which I hope will be just as good as all the other patches 😉
And of course there will be more patches popping up shortly…
In other news…
The logo patch has been chosen – congratulations to Penwen and his very nice design!
He’ll receive a prize, a forum badge and general kudos among the group…not to mention that his design will be the 81st patch on the quilt!
No doubt there’ll be something to post very soon, so please check back often! ❤

Sounds like it could be a band name to me…but it’s the three latest complete Gen. I patches!!
Here we have Craftymaster90’s Agatha/Lance, Brityboo’s Pidgey evo and Anna Marie’s Geodude evo – congrats to all! 😀
These three patches bring our total to 19!
In other news…
Voting has begun on the submitted designs for the logo patch! We have five contenders, and voting ends in two weeks’ time! The winner will receive a prize as well as seeing their patch design go into the Gen I quilt! 😀

Since last week, our member list has grown – welcome to corbin, LilMissFirefly, EveningEmma, and Eliste!
Holder of Anime has the special honour of being the first to complete a patch, so well done to him. It’s the Charmander evolution set, as you can see here:
I’ve also added a number of progress pictures to the WIP gallery in the last few days and it looks like the first group of patches will be of a high standard! 😀
We now have a dedicated project forum, http://www.patchworkgym.com/forums/index.php. Big thanks to Faewren and her husband for doing the hard work getting it set up!
And to coincide with the opening of the forums, we are having a gym badge design contest! The badge will become our official logo and will be used on many things! All entrants are welcome – you don’t have to be stitching a patch to get involved 😀 Head over to the forums and check it out in the Competitions board – there will be a prize for the person who submits the winning design!
