Several weeks ago I went shopping with my sister for quilt fabric for the baby. It was before we announced we are having a boy so I had to act like I was buying fabric for a friend's baby quilt, it worked.
Unfortunately the store I bought the fabric from is closing, super sad because it is an awesome store. But the good part is the fabric was 20% off.
I wasn't really sure what fabric I wanted to use for MY baby's quilt. There are about a million and one choices and having it be your own kid makes it even harder. Hopefully this will be just the start of Dutch's quilt collection from his momma.
In the end these are the fabrics I went with. My fav green color with tiny deer, a pretty aqua design, orange geo, light yellow and a grey dot. Hopefully it will look ok, I didn't want it to be too baby because I want him to love this quilt forever but I didn't want it to be too manly because I am making it for him while dreaming about his baby life!
After picking out fabrics, the design was the other hold up. I didn't want it to be hard and it needed to hide imperfections so I went with this as my pattern inspiration.

This will be my 10th quilt and I have never properly cut out a quilt. Therefore they are usually not squared up but they are homemade and for someone to spend time making you anything means a lot. Imperfections and all. Plus I am not perfectionist (cough cough binding).
Any of you more experienced quilters have any tips to share?
