Tuesday's Folly

This is one of my quilts, designed on a Tuesday, when I stitch with my friend Ann (and we get into all sorts of trouble with EQ and talking about what we could make and how difficult could it be?). Anyway, I entered it into the 2010 world Quilt Competition and, to my surprise and great pleasure it was awarded the Best in Australia Award. I am thrilled, and have almost forgotten all the unpicking I did to get the tension sorted!
This show has entries from all over the world, with coordinators from each country getting their country's entries sorted, and then the collection is hung at several large quilt shows in the US and then finally comes back to me in December. There are pics of the winning quilts on the first site listed below and they are all stunning.
On a different note, it is raining here again, but my sheep Lizzie looks like she has turned a corner. No infection yet, fingers crossed.
See you later
