Well ladies you  did it!!!!!!!!.  You should be patting your selves on the back as our  charity quilt had won FIRST PRIZE at Quilts UK . Malvern.

It's such a fantastic achievement and I for one am very excited about it. Just goes to show what happens  when we work as a team.

Now for all of you who have found the blog through the Malvern Show Catalogue and would like tickets for this wonderful quilt you can contact me on 01242 513851.

The proceeds for this quilt will be split between two charities. The Midlands Air Ambulance and the Encephalitis Society.
It will be raffled at our next exhibition which is on the 12th and 13th April 2014 at Rendcomb College, Near Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Barbara at Fir Tree Quilting for quilting our quilt for us.

Philippa Naylor

Its really been such a long time that I posted that I almost forgot how to post  but after struggling with the inactivity of the blog  through blogger I hope this is all going to work out.

We have just had the most fantastic couple of days with Philippa Naylor.
 She gave a talk to the group and guest's on Wednesday evening followed by a wonderful workshop the following day of Free Motion Feathers.

Philippa showed us  a few of her quilts at the end of the talk , I say a few quilts as that's is what we saw. This is because Philippa has won  so many awards at Houston and Paducah that AQS have purchased them.

 She makes us proud to be British when she has some many of quilts living in Museum's  in  the USA . You might say they  certainly know a good thing when they see it.

 Philippa is an exceptional teacher,  warm,  friendly with a wonderful generous spirit and sense of humour.
We all had a fun filled day and now its just practise practise practise so that we hopefully do her teaching skills proud!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Philippa from us all at Shipton Quilters. 
P.S thanks also for the tip on how to keep our lipstick on ALL DAY.
We might all be walking about with Ruby Red lips from now on.
