January Stitchery and Pattern

First up is my stitchery for January...I put borders on and am waiting for my thread to arrive to be able to quilt it this coming week. This was a fun little project and now I am ahead of the Christmas rush for next year. I turned the stitchery into a mini quilt for next year. Next up is my fabrics that I am mulling over for the SAL...I will be using one solid background in either the blue or green dots...
I also need to decide on which set of fabrics to use for the quilt itself...hopefully that will be accomplished this week.
Fabric choice #1:

 Fabric choice #2
Hope to make my choices soon so I can get started on this project.

Lovely bright stitchery finish!! I do like the brights in your fabric choices but when I scrolled down to the second choice the brights lost favour!!lol! Good luck with making your decision - although you cannot go wrong with either!!

That's the hardest decision when making anything; once that's done everything else falls into place xx
