I found this Martha Negley Poinsettia & Holly, Holly Green fabric at Pink Chalk Fabrics and I think it's going to be much better -- I hope! I love the red berries, since there are so many little red applique berries in the blocks, and similar to how my red poinsettia fabric reads as a solid from a distance, I think this holly fabric reads as a solid green with random red polka dots from a distance, so hopefully these fabrics won't compete with my pieced and appliqued blocks. I'll be able to tell for sure once I receive the yardage and I can lay everything out on the table. In the meantime, I did a little mock-up in my interior design software to try to get an idea of how the quilt will come together:

I really like this fabric in both colors, so if I end up not using either one of them in this quilt I won't mind stashing them away for something else.
Meanwhile, I'm way behind on the blocks for this project. I have two appliqued blocks, the large center applique medallion, and one more pieced block before I'm caught up. I've been trying to get better organized with this project, so I'm working on prepping all of the applique shapes on my kitchen counter and sorting them into little ziplock bags that I can grab and take with me on the go. I didn't get much sewing of any kind done this week because Anders' had his sleepover birthday party last night (didn't get much SLEEPING done, either!) and we've been getting ready for school with supply lists, trying on clothes that don't fit anymore, etc.
I never know how to END these posts, you know? So how about this:
