I have been working on choosing my fabrics for the quilt. I do intend using my stash so I have to go with the colours I find there. I was looking for a more blue selection but my neutrals have more of a greenish tint so that will be it. Last year (I think it was May) a group of us went on a road trip up to Lynnette Anderson's shop and a friend and I decided to share a fat quarter bundle. We cut them into 1/8 ths and I think they should be just right. I have also found some extra bits from my stash to go with them.
On the same day we visited a fabric discount store where they were selling Anni's range of fabric called Love to Garden, which I couldn't leave there even though I didn't have a plan then. I have pulled those out as well and they will be my guide for colour selection. I know there is plenty in my stash to add to this.
So now I have some preparation to do in getting my applique ready.
