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.
