Filling in (quilt show) forms

Virtue is our middle name!   We’ve both managed to fill out (and mail) our entry forms for the Quilts in the Garden show at Trentham in April – so we’ll have clear consciences with regard to supporting our local quilt show.  We’ve mustered a grand total of 6 quilts, 3 each, and it has to be said that they are being entered strictly to support the show rather than to display our skills.  Whoever  first coined the timeless phrase “Finished is better than perfect” is most definitely our sort of quilter!  Closing date for entry forms (if anyone needs a gentle reminder) is the end of this month and forms can be downloaded from .
