June GTG at OFBC

Our good friend Trish lost her eldest grandson nathan in a drowning accident at Easter time.
So, we got together and made her a quilt of hearts in her favourite colours, red, black and white.
She only got a chance to hold it briefly at the meeting before Margaret whisked it away
to take it home to sew on the binding

.Don't worry you'll have it for keeps soon Trish.

Here is Margaret's S&T
She had a collection of bags - a little cross stitch calico bag, a trendy black carry bag with yo-yo's
which she said would qualify for last months challenge - NOT
 and one from Alaska that I think was courtesy of Chris ( we missed you this month Chris).
Her owl quilt (for Lilly?) is looking good with it's borders on and more Elvis memoribilia
 - some fabric and a bath towel - is this a bit much????
We'll wait and see the quilt Marg!
And, her ribbon / yarn garland - who is going to make one of these?

Robyn's S&T
Our Robyn has also been very prolific in the last couple of months.
On the far right is her 'Something old, something new, something borrowed
(a print of the the tread of Ray's shoe) something Blue challenge.
Then her small travel quilt series depicting ...
Nepal, the Peruvian Nasca Lines, Cambodia and Vietnam.
The last three are experiments in design that she made in a weekend workshop
with Newcastle Embroiderers in Kurri Kurri.
