Natures Journey

I'd planned to make Anni Down's new quilt, Natures Journey, this year on my own but when Chookyblue announced it as her choice for this years stitch a long i was so excited. Makes it so much easier to stay on track with others stitching along. My pattern finally arrived after an issue which left me not very happy. I'd bought some shirtings as backgrounds but not knowing the sizes needed didn't buy enough. So i've ordered more & a 4th piece from the same shop. Needing 6 pieces i found 2 cream/blue pieces in another shop & they've been ordered. Now to find something i like for the pink based backgrounds. I bought a fat 1/4 pack of Astor Manor for no particular reason & when it arrived yesterday thought it would be great for Natures Garden. My plan had been to use repro/civil war fabrics like i did for Gossip In The Garden last year
Happy Stitching,
