Hi Lots of good news lately.  Firstly, Julie won a competition in 'Quilt Now!' Magazine called The Story of my quilt.  Her friend had had a lot of bunting at her wedding, which she gave away to guests afterwards.  Julie took quite a bit of it, unpicked it and made it into a quilt which she gave to her friend for her 30th birthday! 

Here they are with the quilt.  What a lovely story!  Julie won a day's workshop as her prize. After the workshop, she started gathering up the good scraps for Project Linus (as we do!) and Katy Jones, the editor of the magazine, offered to send some fabric for us to use. We took the fabric to use at a recent Project Linus sewing day at Hannah's Room in Ibstock.

Here are Lynda, Julie and Paula with Maria, Gail and Roxana's daughter Charlotte on the day.  We used the fabric donated to make five disappearing 9-patch quilt tops. Katy was so impressed that she's published our photos in 'Quilt Now!' Magazine issue 37!  Just form an orderly queue for signed copies! 

But even better, Liz entered a quilt started by Muriel, before her sad death last year, into the Fund raiser category at Malvern, and won first prize!  

Here she is in front of the quilt (which she obviously finished and quilted). 

And here she is with the trophy!  Well done Liz and Muriel!  The quilt will be raffled in aid of Friends of Saint Cross Hospital.
