and I free-motion quilted it with feathery shapes with the tension cranked up as high as I could get it to make the whole thing crinkly.. Then I hung it up and hacked the edges off with scissors, much to the amazement of a watching friend..
I was rather hoping it would get poor notes, and I was really expecting criticism of the roughness..
And I was rather unhappy that my transparent, translucent, see-through "double-sided" quilt was hung against a black drape in a darkish corner, but hey..
And the judges loved it..
And both said, wistfully, "shame it wasn't hung in the open"
Ah, well, win some..
I'll have to try harder next time..

And he let me take a picture first..
Picked blackberries, probably the last for the year, and a big punnet of sloes for my gin-making friend.
Then I went to sleep all afternoon..
This recovery stuff is exhausting..
