PATCHWORK QUILT QUIZ

I apologise to all of you if you can't get the answers from the website I put on the quiz. I haven't been able to get them either but it might be that my machine just won't let me get on. One of the joys of living in the country.
However they are on the FUNDRAISING SITE if you want to work through them. Someone kindly put them on for me..



But I want to say a big thankyou to all who bought quizzes . It raised just over £200 for Shirley Church so we are all very pleased with the result.

After a draw the winners were

1st Christine Pairman Tilicoultry
2nd Eileen Fenty Fraserburgh
3rd Audrey Mooney Blackpool

The lucky draw winner was Betty Wharf Norwich


I'm working my way through the rest returning the answer sheets so hopefully you'll get them soon. Thanks to all for your support.
