Past the finishing post!

Excuse the dodgy Ipad photo... Formal photos take place in the Winners Enclosure later in the day!

The map is of Chester Racecourse which is why the quilt is called The Roodee and it is a suprise gift for a colleague who loves racing and who appeared to be genuine when he said he liked a previous quilt made with this technique! It is made with mostly handdyed fabrics for the horse and a background painted, stamped and scraped with screen inks. The writing is all about Chester Races, the history of racing in general and the history of Chester. It is 35 x 42 inches.
