A Good News Day is always a good time to say Thank You from Clever Chameleon

Shadows of Auntie Green with blue ribbon

Shadows of Auntie Green has found her own little place in (South) Australian quilt history

Do you remember the story behind my April Island Batik Ambassador Quilt, Shadows of Auntie Green? It was inspired by a quilt from Australia’s early quilt history called Auntie Green’s Coverlet. And do you remember how I struggled with knowing quite how to finish this quilt off, and I got lots of lovely suggestions from readers that sparked just the right idea?
