Thank you to Chooky and Susan for your hard work in organising and for any future whip cracking lol.... can't wait for next month to get started on Annis new quilt. I live 50kms North of Bathurst so The Home Patch is my local quilt store!!!!!!

I've never completed anything this early before lol but ta dar.....



I really enjoyed stitching this one, love the CGT Running Postman, tis a new favourite now. Just need to find some fabric and make it into a wall hanging....
Happy Stitching
