Finally my A Gardener's Journal............

Finally I have the camera and the quilt in the one spot.............the last month has been pretty busy..............I got out early yesterday morning and snapped some pics...........the first ones aren't the best but they show you the gorgeous quilting Bec did on my quilt.............sometimes it is hard to capture the quilting......
beautiful borders..............
I really LOVE all the quilting............thanks heaps Bec...........
I changed this block to get rid of the dog and the cat and changed the glass to a wine glass...............
A Gardener's Journal by Anni Downs Hatched and Patched. 
An amazing aussie designer. 
This quilt was a book Anni release a few years ago and it is still available
This was the Stitch-a-long we have just finished up. Thanks to the support and encouragement from the girls in this group which started out as a challenge between me and 2 other friends Peg and Dale and grew.........
THANKYOU 
............this would probably still be a UFO without you. 
Catch you later..........
