Traveling Stash Giveaway WINNER and Aviatrix QAL

Traveling Stash WINNER:

I am so excited to annouce the Traveling Stash Winner, its Mary. Here is a screen shot from the Rafflecopter random generator:
She wanted to add some low-volume fabrics to her stash, so this what I'm adding. To see what I scored from the Traveling stash click here.


Aviatrix QAL:

I shouldn't be starting another project, but when I saw Elizabeth Hartman's new pattern and Aviatrix QAL. I just couldn't resist. At first I ignored it, but then gave in the temptation. She mentioned in her blog that its a low-key one and no pressure in finishing up within a set deadline, which was deciding factor for me.
I am not planning to finish this in next 3 months, but its going to be an year long project :-). Low pressure!

Fabric Selection:

Here is what I have selected so far in term of fabrics. I know what my main fabrics are but they're not yet well grouped into Dark, medium light or as per Elizabeth's suggestion. I started with Saphire fabric collections and then added some Moda Sphere and low-volumes form my stash. Bits N Pieces carries the Sphere collection as well, but didn't find it on their website. So, if you're local check it out at the shop.
Started with these 4 groups - each is supposed to have 5 FQs

I think these colors go really well. For my accent fabric I am planning to use white and background yet to decide. But I want to use something with more texture, either visually or feel wise.

Happy Quilting!
