It is not a long standing UFO - for a change.
I had been wanting to do one of Leanne Beasley's quilt patterns for a while but I was able to get my hands on the pattern for this one - Journey of a Quilter.
In August 2011 I was able to do a big shop hop in Sydney when I went down for a visit and found a lovely collection of 30cm pieces of William Morris fabrics. Then in another shop I saw some Threadworx threads in the perfect colours and in yet another shop I picked up quite a few creams and beiges.
As soon as I got back I started tracing and stitching.
