The border fabric has arrived...

A wonderful parcel arrived last week when I was in Sydney. It was from Hatched and Patched in Bathurst and had my border and some more stitching fabric for the Gardener's Journal quilt. That means I can choose fabrics and perhaps get my first block done before the end of April...perhaps in the first week of May.
I pulled some fabrics out of my stash. The photo was a bit dark so the colours are a little wrong but I think they might do.
