June More new members!!

 
Goodness me we are popular! More new members snd my resolution this month is to get the blog post done toute suite. So with no further ado! We are off! Firstly we have two lovely members who are very poorly, Barbara and Sue, ladies we love you and miss you so if you are reading this, get well soon. Lets have a look at last months bee blocks.  😍😍😍😍😍 love love loving these for Diane, look like the prettiest sound waves dont they?
Next up, well you cant go wrong with a house block can you?? Our members have knocked it out of the park again with this selection.
 
Yes i know you have to tilt your head to see them but i couldnt get close for the scrum of members eager to see how well they turned out!!
For next month Madeleine gave out Minecraft patterns i cant wait to see how they turn out!
How fab is this! Ann asked for star blocks, she is going to make a siblings together quilt, our members are rather wonderful that way you know.
Here is the block:
Onto our new member! Welcome Liz! Liz saw our stand at the Knitting and Stitching show, here she is with some of her makes:
 
Cracking quilts Liz and a very warm welcome to the group.
Oh man! How adorable is this swap mini Madeleine made?? Almost as adorable as Madeleine herself 😊
It was national sewing day so how wonderfully appropriate for Pauline to bring along this amazing cross stitch, love it Pauline!
Blimey thats a big one! Our Chair Cathlene shows off a stunning disappearjng nine patch, always been on my to do list, this example has just bumped it up!
Just wow! Ok my poor photography and neon light dont do this justice to the colours in Mags quilt, beautifully long armed by previous member Tatyana, really lovely.
Action shot!! Sorry Suzanne! Everyone wanted to see her lovely porthole cushion cover so Suzanne was turning this way and that, never mind i got a great action shot, this is part of a matching set for her dad for his birthday, thats so sweet.
Ruth is our lovely treasurer, not only does she keep our finances tickety boo but she is also a recent convert to foundstion piecing. She took the "in flight" pattern by Tartankiwi and  produced this stunner, i love the feathers floating off into the background. Amazing work Ruth.
 
 
Oh Heather what a stunner! Jo Averys crockery pattern brought to life by our very own Heather.
A prize winner!! And very well deserved too Helen! Helen win second prize at her other guild for her Rogue Red runner.
I had some show and tells too!! This is a fun wall hanging from the quilt along by Honey Bunny and Doll, all in liberty.
My last show and tell is a reminder to myself to stop making flippant throw away remarks .... i once said something stupid about batiks and guild members are forever saying to me "you dont like batiks do you?" ..... NO!!!!!!! I love batiks, i said something daft and have regretted it ever since!! 
So her you go, read the t-shirt 😊😊😊
 
I cant leave without highlighting yet again the generosity of the guild members. Mags is fundraising for the three childrens charities her daughter and asked if members could bring aling things for her craft stall, as usual the members did us proud.
