Whole Cloth Quilt,

I won a first!






My Whole Cloth Quilt "Avec Amour" won first in the Traditional Ameteau Section!
Now I think I have moved up to Professional status!



I was so very happy.   



This quilt has been a gift for my Eldest Daughter...and she has been so patient, as it took me quite a while.This shows my trademark Ladybug.  I try to put one of these in each quilt,  in varying sizes.
I am so glad I took the trouble to redo the binding :)

I will put up more photos of the quilts I took some photos of very soon.
hopefully it wont be so long between posts.
