1st Prize - Row by row Quilt

During our annual Show, the Row by Row quilt I made last year, won first prize.  I received very positive comments from the judge who thought that the machine embroidery was outstanding and that the quilt is visually very successful.

Block a day Quilt

Since my husband fell of a ladder on the 26th of April, quilting, machine embroidery and any as well as every kind of hobby has ground to a halt.  You grow accustom to your way of life and when something major like this happens and everything comes down to one person, it kind of opens your eyes again to appreciate your spouse especially for what he contributes to your everyday existence.

Whilst he was in hospital and rehab for a little more than two weeks, I took these blocks along and stitched them.  There is now only 4 left and then I can start putting this quilt together.
