Festival of Quilts

The quilt group I belong to, Upcott Valley Quilters got a Highly Commended for our group quilt!
My bit is on the far right and is wine bottles. It is double sided but was hung so that only one side could be seen. The blue fabric was hand dyed. Originally it was a quilting project, going back to its roots of using household objects as templates. I think the applique took over a bit on most of them. Mine is all hand quilted and the applique is minimal.

Dolton Horticultural Show

Yesterday I entered the Dolton Horticultural Show for the first time and got first for a dressed doll, a piece of patchwork, sweet peas and pansies. I was very pleased.
