The Story Of This Quilt
Small Greek Ferry Boat by Louise Donovan.
 

When we first visited Patmos small ferry boats lined up along the front of Scala ready to transport the visitors to the beaches.

We used to take one to the beach at Agrilivado and have many happy memories of the journey - including one when two of the ferry boats had a race back. I can not remember if we were in the winning boat!

Exhibited at Festival Of Quilts.
Birmingham NEC - August 2017.
This was entered as .....
Shirley Valentine.
Inspired by the film Shirley Valentine, a middled-aged Liverpudlian follows her dreams to travel to Greece, to sit by the sea drinking Retsina. She dives from a fishing boat under the sun into waters as deep as for ever - and rediscovers the girl she used to be.
Comment from judge:
I love the meaning behind this simple quilt - colours are gorgeous and the big stitches really complement it. Well done!
