182 Day Solstice Quilt Challenge - Week 5

As part of my new year's resolution, I want to participate in Pat Sloan's Winter Solstice quilt along. I've had this cute little bundle of fabric I purchased from Westwood Acres last year called Storybook Vacation. The fabrics have small prints in soft colors. They've been sitting on the top shelf of my fabric closet and every time I open the closet, I see the pretty colors and wish I had a plan for them.

Yesterday I decided to use them in the quilt along. It just makes fabric choices so less stressful when I just have to grab a bundle instead of going through the process of matching up colors and fabric designs myself. I do think fabric selection is fun, but sometimes this is just easier.

The quilt along is on week #5. So I had some catching up to do. I did make 3 of the 5 blocks available by the end of the day yesterday. Today I made the other two so I am now all caught up. So far I like the results and I can't wait until next Wednesday to get the next block instructions.
