It was very special for me to meet up with Janine Ibbini, one of my Indigo Sisters from our time in Fujino, Japan. Janine was a judge at FoQ this year and, although she didn't judge our quilt, it was very lovely of her to comment on Facebook pictures of our quilt,
"I spotted this quilt while I was chatting to someone and took a photo as I think it's a beauty!! How cool is that to know it's yours!! I love the colour scheme."
Wow, thank you Janine!!
This is our "blurb" about our quilt:
The colours in each country road block represent Lincolnshire. Our beautiful county has rolling green pastures and distinctive soils while expansive farmland gives us big skies and glorious sunsets reaching the sea. Red represents the cross of St George in the Lincolnshire flag with the blocks separated by country roads.
Our quilt was positioned alongside the winning quilts (did they just forget to pop the rosette on ours?!!) and so we had a great opportunity to admire the most excellent work at close quarters after adoring our own efforts. Here are a few, with some close-ups, (apologies for missing one or two names):
