Hunt QAL #8 Check In.
With a bonus week since the last check in, the holiday downtime and a motivated eye on the finish line, it’s been a productive few weeks.
I have every block in play–yay! Seeing the end gave me a boost of motivation, and so I pushed a little harder this weekend to wrap up on a couple of extra blocks. I now have 15 blocks fully finished and 1 block remaining to be basted and appliquéd.
I’ve saved this blue block in the corner for last. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to go so boldly blue with my original plan being more about green.
My layout is mostly grouped by color. With there being darker greens, lighter greens and shades from navy to hunter green to sage, I like how this approach can organize everything and tell a story. I’ve laid out the blocks a few times now, and each time I feel like I’ve done it a little bit differently. There are so many good options, but I’m calling this good and will sew it together without second guessing anything.
As for the blue, I love it. It gives a pop, and that print is one of my favorites from Collection CF. The color came out so vibrant, which makes me happy. This one is staying.
Another new and exciting combo that I discovered this month is this one.
How has your month been? Have you been finding yourself adapting the vision as you move along too?
