“Flying High”

This quilt came from a photo taken by my boyfriend on a family outing to Lyme Regis. Seagulls are ‘public enemy number one’ in some people’s books but they look so majestic and beautiful soaring against the sky—so long as they’re not stealing your fish and chips! And their eerie cry reminds me of the excitement of waking up on the first morning of childhood holidays at the seaside. “Flying High” won first prize in the Festival Challenge at the Spring Quilt Festival, West Point, Exeter in 2011 and went on to take 3rd prize in the same competition at the National Quilt Championships at Sandown Park in June 2011. 


The quilt measures 24” x 24” and will remain in my own collection.
