In the middle of trying to find out what on earth had happened to my sister after she was taken away by ambulance from the airport, I got a call saying this quilt had won the Stars and Stripes theme at Quilts UK. I collect my award on Sunday.
My sister is not well but OK having slept after being on oxygen over night. (perhaps I should let you know it's not swine flu, she has a long-standing condition, sarcoidosis)


  1. I would have given you the prize!!! Just gorgeous! What pattern did you use? Congratulations! (and hpe your sis is better.)

  13. Congrats on your award Sally. All that hard work and heart ache has paid off!

  14. Congratulations Sally!!! Once again we can delight in the recognition your work is receiving. The quilt is lovely, but then, so is all of your work .. particularly the quilting which is fantastic.

    When I grow up as a quilter, I would love to create even a small project that is even close to the work you do.. May much success lie ahead in your future.
