Another Newbie Janiac ...

Hi all ... Larissa from Darwin here, ready and eager to join in the fun of piecing this gorgeous quilt with you all!

I have been crushing on this pattern for a few months now and was keen to do it ... What was holding me back? ... the thought of doing it by myself ... enter y'all Janiacs!!  Thankyou to Vicki and Dawn for coming up with the brilliant idea to start up this group to help encourage and inspire us through this beautiful design!!

So, I have taken the plunge and ordered my pattern ... should arrive next week ... and have decided that since my stash isn't much to rave about ... I also have these two layer cakes on their way ...

Nice, earthy tones!

Love your fabric choices Larissa and they are very similar to DJ's. They will make very pretty blocks. :)Hugs Vicki x

Your fabric choices are awesome Larissa! I cannot wait to see your blocks when you start, they're going to be so pretty.

Nice fabrics Larissa, you don't need too much fabric to make a DJ block, a fat eighth is ample, and those layer cake squares will be great.

Thanks for the encouragement and advice!! I'm looking forward to my parcels arriving (Friday ... God willing, lol!!!)
