The little Jack Russell painting entitled "Millie's Garden" won the Elizabeth Meek Award and the border terrier painting "Beautiful Dreamer" was awarded a "Gold Memorial Bowl Honourable Mention".

The Dream Quilt update.


If you would like to buy a copy of The Dream Quilt book you can order at most good bookshops, you will need to quote the ISBN 9781902421605 

You can also buy the book directly from Susan Hill's Long Barn Books website


You can also buy the book The Dream Quilt from my Etsy shop in the book section.




You can buy printed fabric to make your very own quilt in my Spoonflower shop. I would recommend Kona Cotton as the fabric of choice for making a small quilt. Please do not be put off by the pricing in US Dollars, it is very simple to order if you live in the UK or elsewhere. If you live in the UK the fabric will be printed to order within the EU.
One yard of fabric using my Dream Quilt printed panel is sufficient to make a small quilt (top layers)
If you make a quilt I would love to see it!
