More June Makes

Val made this special baby quilt in an unusual but very effective grey/white colour scheme. It is for a forthcoming new addition to her family. 
All the animal motifs were beautifully hand stitched, which can be seen in the close up pictures, below.

Marg M made this lovely period doll, in such a chic outfit, who is patiently waiting for a face and name, watch this space.

Cilla sandwiched this super alphabet quilt which will be a great game finding the characters to match the letters.
Marg M has made 2 beautiful cushions ready for the tombola at our exhibition next year.

Another lovely one from Maria with hearts.
After one of our members had a very sad bereavement in her family we have started, once again, to make syringe driver bags to be donated in memory. 

It is essential to choose fabrics which will be suitable for male patients as well as the pretty ones for the women.We've had a great response so far with around 20 coming in at the last meeting.

Anyone who would like to make these helpful bags for any local hospice or hospital oncology unit will find full instructions for making and donating them on the side bar of this blog via the "Making for Charity" button.
Each meeting it is a great opportunity to share magazines, another part of the group's generosity.

Cornerstone Quilter's June Makes

Show and tell is a lovely part of our meetings when members have the opportunity to showcase their latest creations before the group. It is inspiring and often other members go on to make similar items and share designs and patterns. It also encourages new members to show their progress and it is amazing just how much is produced by a small group of enthusiastic stitchers.

Mo started this lovely hanging at our retreat in May, after winning the kit in one of our spot raffles. It was a great deal of hand stitching but she didn't take long to finish it.
Detail showing the embroidery around the centre ovals and the beading...... and the gorgeous tassel Mo made!
Here's a great Dresden Plate finish from Irene
Great detail here as each Dresden Plate segment was decoratively stitched.

   Maria, our newest member has been busy stitching a panel to make a special Buddha cushion for her daughter. 
and an effective monochrome cushion.

Caroline is getting ahead for Christmas finishing her Celtic Braid table centre which she started at the retreat.
Lorna made some super bunting.....with great motifs....
and the name beautifully appliqued.
A lovely addition to a baby's room.
A really pretty baby quilt, hand quilted.
Lots more to show for this month so keep popping in.
