Mini Dwell WIP: Top Done....Now Onto Quilting!

Well, I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day, but then again I think that a lot of us must feel this way.  I think that perhaps a little prioritization and list making is in order, but doesn't that take time as well?  Anyway, enough of that.  I am finishing up the initial April Showers fabric orders to send out, but I wanted to get a quick post in since it has been a little while.  
I do really love this new collection by Bonnie and Camille, but then again I love pretty much all of them.  While waiting on this new fabric to arrive and procrastinating taxes, I started working on a Mini Dwell using the Thimble Blossoms pattern by none other than Camille Roskelley.  I have been on a bit of a Hometown fabric kick lately, so of course that is what I used.  I basically love it!  Plus, I was able to use some more labels from Sweetwaterscrapbooks on Etsy.  Their labels are amazing!
I just need to figure out how I want to quilt it.  I want it to be fast, but I want it to look good as well!  I take way too long contemplating these things....
The other amazing fabric collection that we just got into the Etsy shop is Grey Abbey by Elizabeth Olwen for Cloud 9.  Cloud 9 has a great free quilt pattern using this fabric called the Ribbon Box Quilt on their website.  It is definitely worth checking out.  I have been greatly anticipating the arrival of this one, and it is perfect!  It is up in the shop now, and of course I want to make some thing with it.  But I am going to try my hardest to resist, so I can finish a couple of other projects first.   Maybe if I can finish a couple I will reward myself by sewing some thing new with it!
Lastly, I was wanting to do a giveaway on Instagram, hopefully sometime tomorrow.  If you are interested follow my Instagram account, GoobaDesigns.  I think I will be giving away one of Thimble Blossoms "mini" patterns and a fabric kit with it.  Haven't decided exactly what yet, any suggestions?
