Hilda won a copy of "Colourful Quilts for Babies and Toddlers" in July.
Hilda from Yorkshire was the winner of our July Join Prize. She received a copy of "Colourful Quilts for Babies and Toddlers", we hope she enjoys it!
Hilda says, " I have enclosed a picture of myself and one of my quilts. I am 73 years old and the photo was taken this year in Madeira where I went for a month in April. Of course I took some quilt as you go with me, the picture of the quilt is one I did for my daughter. I had to send it to Australia where she now lives. It had to be made to match her bedroom and she sent pictures of her curtains and paint samples over the internet so I could match them. I have made several quilts for my grandson in Australia it makes me feel closer to him when I am sewing his quilts."
"I was so surprised at winning a prize and it was late at night when I checked my email on reading it again, I realised that I didn't mention how much I like the Popular Patchwork website, it is so good to be able to feel part of a community and the website fills a great need for people like me who live in isolated places."
