On 8 June the Row-by-Row meeting was held. The elements to be incorporated in this month’s row were butterflies, bees, bugs and the colour orange. Not everyone was able to make it – illness for some, and the fact that it was only 5 degrees C and windy meant others didn’t want to venture out. For the 20 who made it there were some great interpretations presented.
Here are some images:

|Joanne made her fourth “row” the corner blocks for the border|

|Sandra is going to turn her rows into a jacket|
|Butterflies and dragonflies – quilts as you go|
|For some it is producing a landscape, for others it’s just crazy!|
|Sometimes there are leftovers – this will become a cot quilt for QFO|
The elements for the next row were chosen by Robyn and Joan. Robyn chose “flowers, trees & leaves” and Joan really helped us all by choosing the colour green. The next meeting is on 13 July. We then have a break until September while the Canberra Quilters Exhibition is on. Catchup time for some of us, perhaps?
