I'm really looking forward to this year's project.
So far, I've done January's stitchery, but haven't turned it into a finished item as yet. That will happen very shortly.
I was a lucky lady, and received my pattern for Nature's Journey as a gift from a lovely friend. I'm also lucky in that Anni's shop is my local quilt store, about three blocks from where I work. When I went to collect my pattern I was able to have a little peek at the real thing. It was in the back room, where Anni had been busy cutting fabric packs for the BOM program. Anni said it was OK for me to take a few photos to get a better idea of the colours, although they are pretty close in the pattern cover.
They are a lot more vibrant than I thought they would be.
Initially, I had planned on using some brights for the quilt, but when I started looking through my fabrics I changed my mind and decided to use similar colours to Anni's original. The beauty of it is that I can make this quilt entirely from stash. Right down to the backing and binding. Bonus.
Thanks Chooky and Susan for getting us started. It will be fun.
