I’ve got a new project to work on. Now that the holidays are over, the house is relatively clean, and I’m caught up on laundry, I thought it would be a good time to get started on a baby quilt that I’ve been wanting to make. It’s for my husband’s co-worker’s baby. Ok, so the baby is about 7 months old now. I was just really overwhelmed before, and now I feel like I can breathe again. Anyway, it’s never too late to give someone a handmade quilt.
I just picked these up today. I had a chance to go to JoAnn’s Fabrics, so I took the opportunity to pick out which fabrics I wanted. That part is ALWAYS the hardest for me. I picked out five different fabrics for the quilt top. This is a change for me. In the past, I’ve only used about two different fabrics. I have only done 9 patch squares, or some variation of that. This time, I’m mixing things up a bit and trying something new. I have a design in my head, so we’ll see how it turns out in reality.
These are the fabrics I chose for the quilt top:
