Hannah's Heart

At my monthly Heritage group meeting today I managed to finished sewing the binding on Hannah's Heart - Table Runner by Melissa Grant  for one Day In May Patterns.
Almost forgot a BIG thank you to Christine from MacDonald's Patch for noticing I had sewn my bird panels sitting the same way instead of opposite before I started to quilt... whew... Saved me a lot of heartache. :)


It matches my French General box that I made last month.

Quilt Crawl 2015

Another great quilt crawl, destination Albury. Eight like minded patchwork enthusiastic ladies in two cars headed off for a two day patchwork getaway. We had so much fun exploring all the lovely shops and filling our needs, wants and just because...lol....baskets. Kept forgetting to take photos (most of us are photo shy) here are a few I did take and my purchases.

Highlight was going to Carolyn's Quilting Room & Patchwork Shop in Wodonga

Albury Botanical Gardens

Carin checking out the scenery ...

Leigh Liz and Andrea stopping to smell the roses on our way back to the car. I must thank and add Liz was a fabulous driver. Andrea was lots of fun as my room buddy and Leigh was a great ...lol.. Navigator and kept us in fits with her comments about navigating with an iPad.

My purchases,starting to collect for a new project that I have my eye on.....lol...oh do I dare start another.....
