Tonight we (Quilty Gal and I) went to the local Spotlight store for their "end of bolt" sale. Met up with a few pple including Quilty Gals sister - "What you getting that for" - bought a couple of bolts between us which was an absolute bargain - almost 10 metres each for only $20!!! Great for backing quilts. I also bought some yellow felt.
Our "loot" was purchased and put into a calico Spotlight bag which had a few goodies in it. A fat quarter, silk embroidery reel, $10 gift voucher if you spend $50 next week and 2 metres of interfacing - not bad!!
The Spotlight store had a quilt competition and this lady - Derani - won 1st prize!! which was the trolley loaded with goodies. She was so thrilled I think - it has taken her 17 years to complete the quilt. Congrats :0) The pic to the left is a picture of the quilt, some of us were told pics would be ok and some brought quilts - really hard for the judge I think!!
Then there was a slight mix up and I won a voucher for $200 for "my" quilt. I took 2 along and asked which one had won me the voucher....I had held up one of Quilty Gals quilts :)))) and of course the judge had thought it to be mine LOL!!! So here is a pic of the judge and Quilty Gal with the beautiful Bears Paw Quilt that was made a little while ago. She won for the preciseness of the points and the exquisite hand quilting and the fact it is a beautiful quilt - so WELL DONE GAL!!!
