For now I thought I would share with you some more quilt photos sent to me and most are award winners - CONGRATULATIONS to everyone - it is such a thrill for me to see your interpretations but even more of a thrill knowing that the designs have been so rewarding for you too!
Michele's William" by Carol Timmins
Carol gained a prize at the Sydney Quilt Show in June! Such clever use of several quilt designs. Just beautiful - thanks for the picture Carol
And I got this lovely email..................
"We thought you would like to see a picture of our raffle quilt for this year.We bought a copy of your book for our library. About twenty people worked to produce the top from your pattern and we had it professionally quilted by Kay Brown. The applique is done with a small zigzag stitch, we did spend one of our meetings getting members machine set up to stitch the same so that the applique would be consisted. We are all very happy with the end result and the first comments we have had as we start selling our raffle tickets have been very positive with people loving the design.
Many thanks for a very enjoyable book"

Andrea from Calgery, Alberta, Canada sent me this picture of a challenge she entered. I think she has used Friends blocks and a motif from Coffee with WM
Pat won a prize at the Victorian Quilters exhibition for this stunner..............
Pat Leviston's William Morris Sampler
This was my first ever Morris Sampler design and it is still my favourite - congratulations Pat! I love the dark background.
She says in her email........"It is all hand stitched and hand quilted and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. It is called "Sapphire Peacock". A dear friend of mine said it needed something special for an eye and she gave me a sapphire to use. I had a neighbour, who works in silver and gold, make an eye "socket" (with lashes) in silver that retained the sapphire and enabled me to (blind) stitch it in place"
Have a good week
