in the past year i've got into patchwork in a big way (thanks viv). although what i really enjoy is buying fabric and looking at quilting books, i've finished two quilts (including this one) and have two more that just need binding and labels (not to mention the numerous ufo's i've started just to see how the block looks in certain fabrics).
about two years ago i saw the pattern sheet in spotlight to make this quilt and liked it so much i promptly bought all the matching fabrics. a year later i cut out the pieces and six months after that i put it all together. as usual my lovely aunty joy quilted the layers together. bright stripey binding (my favorite) finished it off perfectly.
when i went into spotlight a couple of weeks ago i noticed they were holding a quilt competition with the conditions being that all quilts entered must be from spotlight fabrics.
last saturday i entered 'sleepy hollow' into the competition and won first prize - this elna sewing machine! i believe one can never have too many sewing machines so this one will go into my collection of six other domestic/industrial/overlock/sewing/coverlock machines. now..just have to work out where to put him...
