Carol says, "I am a mother to four daughters and a Nanna to four grandchildren. I work full time in a stressful job so patchwork is my “therapy”. This photo shows one of the quilts that I made for my granddaughter. I gave it to her at the same time as I gave one to her brother and sister so it was a mammoth task getting them all finished. I am currently finishing a kingsize quilt that I am making for my daughter that I started three years ago – I get distracted easily with other projects! Fortunately she hasn’t changed the colour of her bedroom since I started it."

"I have only just started my subscription to Popular Patchwork so am really pleased to have won a competition – I never win anything. The website is brilliant – especially as I have access to all those wonderful back issues."

We love this tumbling blocks quilt, hope Carol enjoys using her lamp, and also that she will have fun joining in with some of our swaps and discussions on the forum.
