Some News to Tell

 This is my Sudoku quilt...at least the centre part...got my 81 squares done and put together...had a good look and realized I had put one square..one of the small 6 inch squares in wrong....unsewed it and put it back in......I would have driven myself crazy if I hadn't...not a little OCD...maybe a lot....oh well!

Here's my news....that's me, Carolyn Wishart(President of the Marco Polo Quilt Guild) and Peter LaRocque, a Curator of the NB Museum and the quilt is my Baltimore Bouquet...it was chosen as the NB Contemporary Quilt Award for 2015...ask me if I am proud......you bet...not just that it was picked but that it will now be displayed in a museum for anyone that is interested to see. I am over the moon!!!
