My first post.

Well here I am at last making my first post for the Stitch-Along. My name is Noela, I live in S-E Queensland and I have been quilting for a number of years. I love incorporating stitching in my quilts and so was drawn to Anni's A Gardener's Journal quilt as soon as I saw it. I too, like many of you, have had my book, fabrics and threads for a long time. They have been hiding among my stash of fabrics and UFO's. I am so glad I discovered this blog and was not too late to join in. I have prepared my first two stitcheries and have just started to stitch them today. I am adding a photo of the fabrics and threads that I will be using. The tea-stained fabric in the front is the fabric I am using for my stitcheries.

I look forward to seeing every-one's blocks as they are finished. Bye for now.........Noela

Your fabrics are just beautiful. I know you will have fun stitching along with us!! I am so jealous of those who have the border fabric as pictured in the quilt. It will be stunning! Does anyone know if that beautiful fabric is still available?
