Melanie says, "Thank you for your e-mail and great surprise of winning the August join prize."

"I have been quilting for more than twenty years and have tried lots of different styles.  The double wedding ring pictured is my favourite, made about fifteen years ago.  Daughter Cara (8) would not go to bed unless she was in the photo."

"Enjoying the magazine and web site.

What a great photo, Melanie, your double wedding ring quilt is beautiful, as are both of you! We hope Cara got to bed on time, but very pleased that she wanted to be included, she might like to try some of our children's projects next holiday, and win a prize of her own one day. We hope you will continue to enjoy your hobby, your new book, and that you will make lots of new friends here.
