I entered my first ever competition at the British Stitch and Quilt Village www.quiltandstitchvillage.com quilt show last weekend and won third place - really pleased!
The competition category was 'Lest We Forget' to commemorate 100 years since the beginning of World War One and my Finer Focus piece first made for the Out of the Fold exhibition last year fitted the theme.
|Finer Focus Triptych. Each panel is 30cm x approx 200cm. Recycled calico coffin cover. Dyed, stamped and stitched.|
