My name is Lynda (bettsylyn) and I live in Queensland Australia. I've been around with this group for a while but not always finishing things.
I see a few people commenting about what fabrics to use for this quilt, and what amounts. I wanted to comment not to stress about using your stash. I have been working on the previous Anni Downs Quilt - Gossip in the Garden. The picture I have included here is not my quilt. This quilt is a quilt by a friend of mine. She made it as a gift for a special friend. Just about every fabric came from her stash, there was no major theme except that she wanted to make it for a friend who liked blue.
If you want to use your stash, just pick out fabrics, fat quarters, colours you like. It will work.
I am still working on mine and will post pictures in a little while. I have done most of the handwork but need to do some machine sewing to get it together.
I have really enjoyed making this quilt so am looking forward to the new one.
