Thank you!!

Far out brussell sprout!!! The show is over now and I feel as though there's so much to say but where do I begin? I know you want to see more photos of the quilts but first I really want to thank some of the people who have made this past week the best week of my life.  It's not just the honour of winning such a prestigious award but all the wonderful people I've met. All of the Quilt NSW team were Amazing!! A show with 400 quilts is a huge undertaking but they were so organised in a friendly and efficient way.

Hello everybody!  I've been held captive by daily life but have snuck back for a report on my recent ( well, not quite so recent now) quilty news. First up  - I was over the moon to find out that Happy as a Clam received a Viewers Choice award at the 2016 Springwood Community Quilt Show. It's such an honour to think people chose my quilt as their favourite. Thank you to all those lovely people who voted for me and for the lovely comments you wrote on the viewers choice voting slips.  The other quilts I had hanging in the show were  Yoyo's a la Mode , the quilt I made to show yoyos could be modern. If you would like to read more about this quilt pop back to an earlier blogpost here. and Charming Smiles , a quilt designed for 5inch charm squares.
