Congratulations Maureen

Scrolling through Instagram recently, I spotted a lot of chat about a great new publication from Express Magazines. the cover caused me some interest as I recognised the quilt as being made by an EPQ member.

Beautiful quilts

My mother in law visited from the UK 3 years ago and was here for the EPQ quilt show and attended a few meetings on Wednesdays with me.  The girls from Wednesday were lovely enough to give Barbara some blocks as a present for her help at the show and as a farewell gift. She has now created two quilts from these blocks and sent me some photos.  I thought everyone might enjoy seeing them. Chris C.
