My Mum takes Grand Champion with her first-ever quilt

What news!  My mother is a ‘beginner” quilter and has just won grand champion with her first quilt.  Does this mean she is no longer a beginner, LOL?  Her quilt is a simple scrappy 16 patch set on point and contrasting cornerstones with sashing and outside borders the same colour so the blocks appear to float. Such a simple layout, yet so very eye catching, the judge  loved it obviously.  I gave it simple quilting in the blocks and a hyper-quilted  freehand feather wreath going all the way around the border and into the setting triangles set it off beautifully.  Congratulations!!! and Mum; where’s the photo you promised?…..
