American Beauty

Here is another of my quilts. Humbly, but proudly, I won First Prize in Professional Small Quilts Category in the Sydney Quilt Show in 2004.That was a great thrill as I really enjoyed making this quilt in my favourite reproduction fabrics.
It is foundation pieced and hand quilted and although it doesn't show up too well, the border fabric is a beautiful stripe I ordered from the US.
Off for another day of socializing and I'll work on my Dolly Quilt Swap while chatting with good friends!
Best wishes -
