You know, life is not all about winning the glittering prizes. Sometimes, you just have to be grateful for any prize. Even if it is the booby prize.
Today, I present my prize-winning quilt. It appeared in Kaffe Fassett's Country Garden Quilts which was published last September which of course was a huge thrill and honour, but it was only when I was trawling through my older photos yesterday that I realised that I hadn't shown it here. However, I can at least now say that is has the distinction of winning a prize. I see on Amazon.com that someone has reviewed the book and, commenting on the quilts therein, says, 'The Allottment [sic] quilt takes the prize for the ugliest.'
How kind. How generous.
It's the second version of my Allotment Quilt and was made with richly coloured Rowan fabrics. In Kaffe Fassett's book it is photographed in the fantastic garden at Great Dixter, but here it's photographed in our garden.
