I completed all of the HSTs I needed for the Ombre Chevron Sew Along that I blogged about last week. Hooray! That is definitely mindless sewing.
I'll be honest, as I was finishing them up yesterday and started laying them out, I really didn't think the chevron look was going to work with the dots. I put it away and went to bed, figuring I'd try again in the morning.
Fresh day, fresh perspective.
I just needed to be a bit more deliberate in my placement.
Even so, I tried a couple other lay out options as well.

I still think I like the chevron best, but I do like the angled shade as well. What do you think?
Next up: Choosing a lay out, assembling the top, and getting ready to quilt it!
You can find out more about the Sew Along, hosted over at Sew Fine Fabric, here.
And I can't resist leaving you with a few photos from the baby shower.
Washcloth puppy dogs, inspired by Pinterest, were table decorations
Chocolate-covered oreos decorated as puppy dogs (are you seeing a theme here?) as favors.
Blue punch! Yum!
Probably stating the obvious here, but she's having a boy and the shower's theme was puppy dogs!
We are so excited to welcome this little one into the family! And yes, there is a quilt in this baby's future. He's due to arrive at the end of April. I'm still hunting for the perfect fabric. I need to find it soon!
Linking up with Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday.
