Prizewinners and Happy Birthday Carolyn

This is the winning entry for the challenge quilt called Scrappy Block.  It's only about 9 x 12 inches .. really clever and a lot of work!

And these are two Merit prize winning quilts.  Aren't they fabulous. 
It was amazing how many different ideas came from one piece of fabric.

I had a really great day with Jennie from Palmerston North. Thank you Jennie for coming to see the show with me. Some weekends I don't think I open my mouth unless it's on the phone haha so I hope I didn't talk too much!!  

Happy Birthday to my dear old friend Carolyn (Little Bear Studio) For Sunday 16th.. whoops the 'old' is as in 'I've known Carolyn all my life'.. we're not old.. hmmmm.. not yet!! 

(That's me on the left.. Hmm I grew too fast and haven't stopped.. )

Carolyn was born three weeks before me and we lived next door to each other in Dannevirke.  those were the good old days when your neighbours were like family and all the kids in the street played together after school.  We were lucky enough to live over the road from the swimming pool in Dannevirke and Carolyn's mum would often take us over for a swim when we were young.  Sadly we all grow up and I haven't seen Carolyn for a long time (I think it was January 1987??) but old friendships never wain.. whoops there I go again.. hehe.. Isn't the internet great that you can keep in touch with friends hundreds of miles away that you haven't seen in a long long time. 
Love you Carolyn, Have a wonderful day whatever you do.

I know that the Mariner block is hard, but it just doesn't do it for me! I love the other two though, thanks for the sharing.

Love all these beautiful quilts and what a lot of work has gone into them.
