Entries submitted

Yesterday I delivered my quilts that I have entered in the International Ploughing Match competition. All the quilts entered are being judged prior to the show on May 28, and 29, 2010. Looking forward to seeing all the entries.

Below is a photo of the English Cottage and Garden quilt finally finished. The colours are a bit washed out due to the bright sun. I am very pleased with the final product, and truthfully glad that it is done. I started it in January 2009, so it has been a long process to get it completed. This quilt is entered in the category "Landscape or Pictorial quilt".


The next photo is a wall hanging submitted in the category of "Rural Sayings" --"Birds of a Feather, Flock together". The colours are brighter than the picture is showing, but it gives you an idea of what it looks like.
My third entry is in the "Original Design" category - "Mother & Child" which I have shown on a previous post.

Yesterday was a cold wet day here in SW. Ontario, the months of April and May seem to be switched around this year. We had unseasonably hot weather last month and getting the rain now. Today is drier but still cool, a good day to do some housework this a.m. and start a new quilt project later today.
I promised myself that I would fill my freezer this year with more fruit and veg. They are so much cheaper when they are in season and they are easy to prepare for freezing. So, yesterday I purchased and froze 12 lbs of rhubarb. On Mother's day I made a Jamie Oliver's rhubarb crumble for my Mum, it was delicious.
The local asparagus crops were damaged by a frost a couple of days ago, so don't know if I will be able to get much of that put into the freezer.
Hope everyone is having a great day.

What an amazing quilt I love the first one. They are all so lovely but the English cottage and garden is so wonderful. You are so talented. I know that they will all be winners.

Patricia, how did you quilt the English Cottage quilt? I still love it, as well as the birds of a feather one. It's so simple and clean. Rhoda

All three of your quilts are winners, I think. You do very, very nice work. Let us know how they do, ok? Barb H

They both are just lovely, but believe it or not my fav is the Birds Of a Feather Flock Together. There is just something about that one that jumps out at me. Good Luck in the show and make sure we hear all about it. Take care.

Your quilts are absolutely gorgeous. I love how you made the cross-stitch pattern into a quilt. Good luck at the quilt show.
