Almost to the Finish Line!

Well, March is finally here and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on the school's auction quilt. My display deadline is April 1 so this month is all I have left! Eight of the embroidered blocks are in and done. I should be getting another big batch tomorrow, one on Wednesday, and the last stragglers on Friday.

This past Friday I also received my custom fabric from Spoonflower. It turned out really nice, however part of me wishes I had listened to my instinct and made the flowers larger, instead of following the advice of my committee.  They just would have made a bit more of a statement.

Now the only thing I still need to get is the material for the boarders/ sashing. I've decided on using Moda Marbles in Deep Olive for that. It has just the right color variations to work nicely with all of the greens in the blocks... I hope! I'm heading back to the NJ quilt show today... alone... to pick up the fabric and maybe take a look around for some other hidden gems. Wish me luck!

Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes! and Let's Get Acquainted Monday's
