What are you most proud of? The fact that I now know what Foundation Piecing is! It was all a mystery to me before and I was so delighted to finish this. It was fun to do and very easy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you haven't done any foundation piecing before, don't worry, it's easy-peasy, and Amy's instructions are very clear.

Well love the fabrics and love the colors, brilliant job! And I have to say even though I now live in the US my family is all over Suffolk! My husband was born in Ipswich so to a fellow 'tractor girl' love the quilts!!!!

Thank you! It's nice to hear from you - very cold here in Ipswich at the moment! Everything was white (and very pretty) with frost this morning - minus 4 degrees C overnight!

I just read your biography - well, I'm not surprised you tried quilting after meeting the wonderful Lynn Edwards! She lives at Chelsworth, near here, and is famous all over the world. I think she's retired from teaching now, but still publishing books and probably still quilting. I can't imagine she would ever stop!
