    My Block Won First Prize

    Wellington County (Guelph, On) put out a block contest ( 50 Shades of Green ) in conjunction with their Plowing Match hosting in 2016. The blocks are to be sew together as raffle quilts. There were 80 submitted and mine took first prize. I was told today, but I have to wait until August of next year to see my block in the raffle quilt and received my fabric bundle from Northcott. LOL
    My block, 14in. is a representation of Wellington Co. showing the rivers, the lakes and the agricultural areas. Just what I needed on a dreary day.!
    The fabric is hand painted and machine embroidered.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much fabric.

    A very unique block but very beautiful. I can certainly understand the inspiration. It is so perfect for the event to be celebrated. Please let us know about the event and show us the finished quilt to be raffled.
