1514 aka The Horse wins Best of Show

 I was totally blown away last week when Grosvenor Shows phoned to tell me my quilt 1514 aka The Horse had won Best in Show and Best large wall hanging. I'm always a bit stunned to get a phone call like that, I still can hardly get my head around the fact that I am an award winning quilter.You can see some of the process of making this quilt in this post 1514 aka The Horse....

Me and my Mum with my award winning quilt...

Loved this African themed quilt by Freda Oxnam

Fabulous Quilt commemorating  100 years since the 1st World War.... if any one can give me the name of the maker I'd be grateful and pleased to include it....

I finished off with a little retail therapy by adding to my collection of Bonnie Hunter books with Susan at the Kaleidoscope Books stand...

All in all a very enjoyable if not tiring weekend....
