The back of the quilt.
I was also very lucky to win one of Nikki's new patterns and she also sent the webbing for the strap! Thanks Nikki. It's the second time I have won something from Nikki, the last time I won some pressing cloths.
Here is Sharon's reply she has trouble leaving comments so emailed it instead.
Just read your blog and as you know I am completely stumped when it comes to that, but I wanted to say and I wanted all the people on your blog to know how much I love and treasure my quilt. It is so special to me and I love the name it is, I think Bern it really describes us beautifully.

Fortunately for us the cool change blew in not long after it started which sent it back towards the north but not fortunate for those living in that direction. I was still on edge that night however and kept the ABC radio on with the fire reports. This was the view from the bottom of my street Monday night. (you can see a bit better if you click on the photo for the larger view)
The firefighters did a great job however and it was under control or contained by Thursday before the next hot day with northerlies Friday.
I guess I was a bit more nervous as I had just returned from working at the Churchill - Jeeralang Callignee bushfires in Gippsland and that fire went a long long way in a short period of time. By the way it wasn't windy when these photos were taken the trees were left like this after the hot winds and fire had gone through.
