It's a fantastic idea to incorporate into a quilt show and creates a bit of a buzz as viewers reach the realisation that 'I saw that around the corner, but it was different', and they then re-track for a comparison look.
Marguerite named her quilt 'Happy Days' as it reminds her of time spent chatting and working with her friends at the cottage.

'Stitched With Love for Sheila'
At end of exhibition Penny from Patchwork Angel decided to raffle off a lovely box of DMC threads.
In Penny's words.
The prize was awarded to The Patchwork Angel’s pick of the show. As it was a box of hand embroidery threads we used hand embroidery as the criteria for our selection. The winner was Karen for her Gingham Girls quilt designed by Red Brolly. Have attached a pic for you although I am sure you have taken one too.
There was even a congratulations from Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly for Karen on Patchwork Angel’s FacebookThanks for the pic Penny.
