Mary wins a yellow rosette at Uttoxeter

Mary's quilt, first seen at the Out of the Fold Finer Focus exhibition in October 2013, won 3rd prize at the British Quilt and Stitch Village show at Uttoxeter last weekend. The competition category was 'Lest We Forget' to commemorate 100 years since the beginning of World War One.

Mary says
"This is the first ever competition I have entered so am absolutely delighted to have my work recognised with a third place. Feeling brave now so off to fill in my entry form for the Festival of Quilts"
