I met daughter Elaine at Superbuzzy yesterday so we could pick out fabric for my future grandson's baby quilt. She and her husband like modern colors and designs so we started off with the burnt orange color print with the squares (S'mores line) and had a great time pulling bolts to go with it. The little raccoons kill me! Elaine had some months ago pinned a quilt on Pinterest as inspiration, which was essentially a classic goose chase pattern. We worked out what size we'd like for the geese and ended up buying quarter yard cuts of these prints. Since a couple of these are directional, we'll be able to cut either crosswise or lengthwise and get what we need. I'm going to make up a sample of the size geese we think we want, just to make sure before I cut into this lovely and not inexpensive fabric!
But before my grandson arrives, Elaine and Chris are getting a nephew via his brother and wife, who are due at the end of the month. I picked out a simple pattern to go with some fat quarters I scored at Tuesday Morning at least a year ago (maybe two!).
I thought the farm theme was cute and fun for a baby boy.
Look at the piggy--irresistible, no? I'll fussy cut as many of the animals as I can for the 5" squares the pattern requires. I have three colorways of the animal print and several coordinates that came in the fat quarter pack--those on the right are pulled from stash. The cream will be the sashing. I'll get my sister started on ironing these up for me See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
Oh, and Happy Birthday, Dad!
