Mary says, "I am so excited that I have won, I have been making patchwork quilts for the past 15 years, doing it the traditional way of paper piecing. I have now bought myself a new sewing machine (as the one I had before was over 25 years old) and have starting machine piecing, which I am really enjoying. I am 49 years old, married and have two little Westie dogs. I really enjoy making patchwork quilts, and have now got my sister hooked on it too. I love your website and as a subscriber to your magazine I am able to view back copies and print any projects that I like."

We hope you enjoy your prize Mary, and that we'll see some of your projects in the forum soon.

The July join prize is a copy of 'Make your Bed' by Leslee Evans. One lucky member joining Popular Patchwork online during July will receive the book, and everyone gets the opportunity to make some great new quilting friends!
