WIP Wednesday

It's been slow sewing around these parts lately.  I've had a ton of things going on in my personal life and I've been overly distracted.  This week though I did manage to finish up the last two blocks of my Snow Blossoms Quilt.

I laid out all the blocks once I was done.  I wasn't sure I was loving this layout but a quick poll on Instagram confirmed that I was on the right track.  I also considered doing some cornerstones but I only had enough of one or two of the fabrics to do that and the one I liked was the dark gray in that middle block.  But since the corner stones would end up in the four corners of that block I decided to skip them.

I'm really loving the way this quilt is turning out.  I've been working with a lot of Bonnie & Camille fabrics lately and so these deep rich colors are very different.  Not to say I love Bonnie & Camille fabrics any less. I am so happy now that I went with the tender green for my solid instead of my typical snow.  I'm really loving the look that this provides.

Here are the first two rows all sewn together.  I need to order some boarder and backing fabric in order to finish this one up.  I guess that's really it for me this week.  Be sure to head over to Lee's and see what everyone else is up to these days.
