So yesterday when I should have only been going to the fabric store to get thread to finish the first quilt I also bought fabric to start another one. Geeze, just writing it makes me realize how silly I am. I must say that picking out fabric was the one of the easiest thing I have ever done. Typically looking at the pattern or picture on the pattern overwhelms, and confuses me in regards to fabric color choices. But when you make up your own pattern you only have your own vision in your head to go by, no confusion, it was great. Perhaps I should always fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to quilting and purchasing fabric. Perhaps I will wait until the quilt is done to see if that is a good idea.
Here are my fabric choices:
I bought baby blanket binding because I think it is so soft and snuggly, and I have fond memories of how soft my baby blanket was with this type of binding on it.
And here is my rough design for the blanket. I did all the cutting last night. The pieces are pretty big so it didn't take long.In the big pink rectangles at the top left and bottom right I am going to embroider or put appliques of something. I am having a difficult time deciding what to do though. I was thinking either a black scottie dog or a white lamb. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Now I am off to enjoy the sunshine.
