We Have A Winner and A Reminder

Thankyou all so very much for all of the lovely suggestions for a name for this quilt.  I have written a number of them down for future use.  It was very hard to choose just one but here is what Deb had to say :-

Hi Fee, its absolutely beautiful. I think you should call the Quilt " Fee's True Love" because of your love for your home, family and sewing.

hugs Deb

Her comment really touched me because all of those things are important to me and in particular the making of my house into a home and the love of my family so it just fits really.  So she now has a name

"Fee's True Love"

The quilt will be published this year in Australian Country Threads Volume 11 - Issue 10 On Sale Late April, so you can all make one for yourself if you want to.  Start saving your red fabrics now - Here are the fabric requirements :-

75cm (30”) Natural Coloured Linen – Stitchery Panels and 2nd Border

75cm (30”) Lightweight Iron on Interfacing such as Weaveline for the stitchery backs

50cm (20”) Cream with Medium Beige Floral Print – 4th Border

For thinking up the winning name Deb will receive all of these goodies.......

And because Deb is a loyal follower she will also receive this gorgeous little birdie - Your parcel will be winging it's way over the waters soon Deb - And Thank You you obviously put a lot of thought into it.

I have had lots of new designs on the go recently - All at different stages - Here is the latest Finish - "Lorraine's Flowers"  This name was suggested by Illene who recently lost her daughter to cancer.

I feel very honoured to use the name Illene - Thank you so much.  This table runner will be published in Patchwork & Stitching magazine later in the year.  When the table runner returns from it's photo shoot I will be sending it to you as a keepsake.

Also just a reminder that my auction for the Queensland Floods closes soon - The bid is up to $285 so thank you to everyone who has placed a bid.

Love and Hugs - Fee X
