Christmas Advent - fabric choices

I cannot believe it is September already!  I have been happily sewing when I get the chance, I will have some great finishes in the future!

Today, however, is a new project, I am joining a quilt along.  Melia Mae Quilting  is hosting The Countdown to Christmas Quilt  Along.  I have been planning an advent calendar for quite a while now.  Dreaming and tweaking the ideas swimming in my head.  My final decision was based on the fact that I do not want to spend any money.  So into my stash I go...

I will be mixing up the pattern a little to suit my needs/wants, but the pattern provided is a great jumping off point.  The fabrics I chose are a mixture of Simply Color (V. and Co.), Flurry (Kate Spain) and some random polka dot's.

I also require a tree in my finish. I pieced it together with more of my Flurry by Kate Spain. 

I am excited to finally get started on this!
