Goodbye March ( hurry up) , Hello April announcing our New Banner Winners..Go Winner and Month end !

It was certainly a GREEN month and our banner
winners for March certainly added a  MODERN flair
to our quilting days. 
Sew thank you, Sarah, Beatrice, Cristin and Stacey.
You all will be missed. We do hope to see you again!
Keep stitching, you are all amazing quilters. 

and now a SNEAK PEAK for our
Sew WE Quilt
@ Stash Manicure.

Congratulations to our Banner Winners...
I received over 303 yellow quilts in all hues, spectrums,
designs and shapes...I chose these 4  to highlight this
month of April.
I chose theirs as they blended perfectly.
Later today  you will read BEHIND THE SEAMS
their stories of their quilts. 

 For now- why- they were selected...
Now Lee yours is the top left...

What I liked about it, well everything...
it is fun, whimsical, colourful, has lot's of depth...
a great way to showcase her   scraps.... well done...
Top center left..Wendy
Her Caption U R Sunshine, says it all
for April Showers. There is always
the wamth of the sun to remind you of better
days. That is what her  quilt said to me.
When everyone sees her  whole quilt they will
understand. Her shades of yellow were sparkling!

Center right...is Jill
Another great scrap quilt...really love
the fact that she  added starched white as her background..
gives it a lot of impact. Modern, captivating.
filled with HER..
Way to go! Bricks never looked sew lovely.

 Far Right is Liesbeth
Her use of color, soft yellow background, , amazing use of color
and fibres. created the impact I was looking for our April banner..
it is striking in all aspects and a perfect addition...

I bet many will shower compliments for them as they are that pretty
...a reminder that we need a few drops of rain
to appreciate the brightness of summer that is around the corner.
 Please take this time to welcome our New Banner Winners...
