The Secret is Out!

I am just back from the meet up at the V & A where we presented Nicola with her quilt; she was absolutely thrilled and had no idea we were working on it! I know Krista has prepared a post with a video showing close ups of all the blocks, but I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures of Nicola receiving her gifts.

Well done ladies. I could not be more proud of our accomplishments.

The Quilt is stunning! So glad a book was published for Nicola. (Please,can we see about making copies? I would love to have one too).

If you are all going to make this an annual trip, some of may just have to join you.

The sampler was stitched by Marsha!
It was slightly larger than the 4" square we specified!!
We felt it best to give to to her separately and not make it part of the quilt as it was so beautiful. Marsha also contributed a smaller 4" square which is included in the quilt :)
