Hi, I am looking for a copy of "A Gardener's Journal" and "An angel's Story" Quilt books by Anni Down. Does anyone have a copy of either I could pretty, pretty please borrow? :D
Thanks!

Hi Karen - no, I don't have them either, so I hope you can source them on loan - just took a look at the "new copy" prices - yikes!!! But they look nice books, though. Do you belong to a quilting quild? Often they have a good selection of books in their libraries, so you might find them that way. Or if you're a member of Kiwiquilters (Yahoo quilting group), you could ask members there. Great group and someone is always willing to help you track down something. Good luck.
Cheers, Mich. :)

Oh yes, I'm not scared of ebay..... there is one copy on there at the moment. As Mich pointed out, prices!! Just watching it for the moment, while I complete my current project (see above post). I try not to have too many UFO's but sometimes the urge to start something new is just too great...[;)]

Oh that is way cute, Karen. I love it!!!! Are you using similar colours? It'll look absolutely beautiful when finished, and I hope you'll post a picture. What a fun project.

After my current project I've got a large farming-related quilt to make for a friend. Design inspiration has been conspicuously absent, although I've been collecting fabrics for it for a number of months. It needs to have horses, dressage, sheep and pine trees to really personalise it, but I'm darned if I can decide how best to display the fabrics I've chosen. I thought perhaps a pine tree or pine tree fabric border, but that's about as far as I've got. Suggestions welcome.....
Cheers, Mich.

I don't think I'm going to be much good with suggestions, my colour choices often leave a lot to be desired. I like kits because all the fabrics are picked for you!! :D A pine tree or a mix of trees for a border sounds nice though.

The Wooly Sheep is a kit so what you see in the pic is what you get. No reason why other colours could be used of course. Very reasonably priced too. Of course it does cheat a bit with the felt pieces, but if it all goes well, it will look quite nice I think. Slow and steady I think is the order of the day!
