A few weeks ago I was able to put my Butterfly Garden top together, lol I only started this quilt top late January 2008! I can't recall the number of times I have put this quilt aside to work on other projects. It was so exciting to finally get it together. It just needs a really good press and basting so I can quilt it.
I had planned to start either An Angel's Story by Anni Downs or Polka Dot Girls by Red Brolly but found when I finished BG that I couldn't pick these quilts up to work on. Down in the Garden by Leanne Beasley was really appealling so I have been working on it. I actually did start DitG nearly two years ago when it was released but I got overwhelmed with the amount of stitching in it alongside all the other stitching I had to do (BG and A Gardeners Story quilt) so it was put aside and I didn't think I would pick it up again so I started using the fabrics to make Sue Daley's 'This Goes With That' paper pieced quilt.
I had a dig around and aside from ordering a couple of Lecien basics FQs I was able to use either fabrics I had originally intended to use or substitutes that I am happier with. I am close to having two blocks completed for this quilt already so An Angel's Story and Polka Dot Girls might not have to wait too long after all!
