Yet another Newbie saying Hello!

My name is Theresa and I live in the UK. I'm just popping in to say hello and thanks to Chookyblue for giving me a space on the Some Kind of Wonderful SAL. I've had my book since July now and have so enjoyed reading it and planning - it's time to make something from it now so I'm delighted to be able to join in with the SAL and hope to keep on track. I've enjoyed watching the Tis the Season quilts being made and finished over the last months - so many different fabrics used and all of the quilts are beautiful.

I had a little trip to my local quilt shop on Friday to stock up on a few more cream fabrics for the quilt. I'm planning on using Fig Tree fabrics - possibly mostly Buttercup, that's the plan at the moment anyway :)

Hello and welcome. I love your fabrics. I have been trying to lay my hands on some of Anni's fabric but haven't been able to do so. I am in the US but I am willing to order it online from somewhere else. Anyway, I looked in my stash last night and found some prints I think will do. I just got the book yesterday.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with these.
