A Big Sale!

A Taste of Africa Quilt
Just before Christmas, I had great news! My quilt was in the Oshawa Show and had enticed a purchaser and all I had to do was decide on a price and did I want to sell it! After speaking to the vice president of a Scarborough company, I realized this was the perfect person to have my quilt. It was to be a gift to the President of the company who is involved and dedicated to doing charitable work in Africa, such as providing clean drinking water. The price negotiated was secured and a courier delivered a cheque and off my quilt went to a new home!

These are the last photos I took of my quilt, in case I want to make a second similar quilt. This Christmas I decided to part with some of my more traditional quilts as gifts to appreciative relatives. I don't know what I have been waiting for by storing my works in a big chest! Time to share my art!

Your African quilt is beautiful, as are your bookmarks.
Happy New Year.

This is a beautiful quilt Donna and how appropriate that it should go to such a person.

I can understand how you felt the need to give away some of your work to people who would appreciate it as it always seems such a pity that so much of our work can be hidden away for so long.
