Starting a New Project

Don't you love starting a new project? My husband asked me about 8 months ago to make a baby quilt for a co-worker who is to become a brand new Gramma. Naturally I waited until said baby is set to arrive before deciding on a pattern and pulling the fabric. (I'm sure I am the only quilter who does this!) I purchased the focus fabrics quite a while ago and have been saving them for just the right quilt. Not until I looked at the selvedge edge this morning did I realize just how long ago. These Timeless Treasure fabrics were actually made in 2001. (((gulp!)))
I have been to 5 quilt shops looking for coordinating fabrics. I had no idea it would be almost impossible to find simple designs in basic colors on a white background! I'm done shopping (after all, my stash can only grow so fast!) and have everything ready to cut. Take a look at the fabrics. The next time you see them, they will be in the form of an adorable quilt top.
