23 x Red Delicious Quilts Exhibit in SA



Imagine sitting down for your daily coffee break and reading this in your in-box:

Dear Esther ,
I am sending a photo of some of the Red Delicious quilts that were displayed at the Pt Elliot Quilt Show on the 26 and 27th of February .There were 23 Reds on display, I was amazed to see that so many finished their quilts . We had so many compliments about our lovely display of Red Delicious and there was a few who didn't believe that they all started out from the same pattern as the range of colours was very diverse . We had a photo in the local paper ( Victor Harbor Times) with our President and Vice President standing in front of a Big Red…-snip-

I don’t know what you would do, but I’m still swooning….

Sometimes people ask me why I offer free BOMs.
This is why! What a honour that so many quilters
have chosen to make my pattern.

Look at them...all the same, all so different...


23 x Red Delicious Quilts in one show.
Is this a record?
My heart is beating fast and I am beside myself!

I have never seen 23 of one quilt in any show. As this show was in a different state, I had no idea it was happening and I am completely proud and delighted that quilters I have never met, have made my Red Delicious. Thank you !

Were you there?
Did you go?
Want to send me some pics?

Don’t be shy - I always want to know what my patterns are getting up to!

Thank you so much Mardi, for sending me these images…

Those are all so wonderful. It really is a terrific, artistic set to do. You deserve that honor. Don't know where SA is but maybe this will encourage more shows of your patterns.

Would there be a chance of you offering this as an encore BOM in honor of this outpouring of love for this pattern? (Translation: I missed out and would love to have it, and I'm sure many others would too! :)
