From the Melbourne Quilt show in Australia on July 22, 2010…

Shelley B. sent me these photos. She says “I won 1st Prize for my miniature called `Enlighten me’ in the open Miniature Traditional section. I was so inspired by your piece `By a womans hand’ . I loved the colors and I just love log cabins, so I created a mini quilt called Enlighten me.” That quilt was in my very first posts back in 2007.

Her photos are clear enough I was able to look closely and identify several fabrics that I too have. For some reason that delights me, having the same fabrics and likes as someone else, especially from a foreign country. Weird maybe, but true. Do you ever do that?

Congrats Shelley on your 1st prize!
