Diann's Tis the Season top finished

This is the email I received from Diann.............It was wonderful to see some progress on Diann's TTS..........don't forget our deadline for everyone is October..............

It's strange to think of you in Australia in the middle of winter while we here in New Jersey, US are having what seems like the hottest summer ever.

I'm pleased to tell you that I finished my Tis the Season top-at last! I also made one of the projects, a cushion. I'm so pleased with how they came out and am determined to get the top made into a quilt this summer. I've attached pictures for you to see.

Well done Diann and I hope we see the finished quilt very soon.................and I hope it cools down a little so you can enjoy summer..............Chookyblue
