"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

At the Lilydale Show I won....

First Prize for my Family Memories wall hanging.


Second Prize for the Rainbow Kittens wall hanging.

Third Prize for the Jars of Preserves mini quilt,

And a Commended ribbon for the Xmas Tree mini quilt!

I was chuffed to say the least, as I didn't really expect to win anything, knowing the quality of the other entries. I'll post photos of the others later on, so you can see why I was so surprised to win anything. I am NOT putting myself down when I say this; I just know that my projects are easy, and only take a few weeks to do (or even less with a smaller project), whereas some of the other quilts in the show obviously have much more work put into them, which I greatly admire, but don't aspire to those heights myself!

Congratulations! Your projects were so charming, that I bet they won a lot of points based on the sheer enjoyment of looking at them. There is a lot to be said for that!! Hugs, Cathy

Wow! Sounds like you make a clean sweep! You prove that it's not the amount of time that counts as much as it is the quality. You go, girl!
