The word delight has a lovely lilt to it and an equally lovely meaning — to take or find great pleasure. And it was was with gleeful delight that I learnt this week that my quilt Garden of Delights has won third prize in the South African section of 20th annual Brother Quilting Contest.
This means that the quilt will travel to Japan for the international leg of the Brother competition. It will be in good company with the other prize winners and finalists in the local competition.
When I finished the quilt I could not resist writing about it in a post called On Gardening so I will not repeat myself about the enjoyment I got out of making the quilt. Last year I entered a quilt called Turkish Delight and it was chosen as one of finalists and also travelled across the oceans to Japan.
