Baby Quilt Is Started!

Lately I've been purchasing most of my quilting fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I just love the variety that they have, the prices aren't bad and to be quite honest I like being able to look at a bunch of different fabrics without having to wander all over a store carrying bolts with me!  I've bought fabric from there twice now and they ship it pretty quickly and it comes packaged so nice!

I'm making this quilt for my supervisor's baby and was told that his wife prefers greens to the typical blues for a baby boy.  I was having trouble finding the right green and then I found this!


It's perfect for a baby boy!!

This is part of the Backyard Baby collection by Michael Miller.  I found a pattern for a Dutch Windmill block quilt that I'm using.  The book has various prints used for the windmill's but I've decided to only use the print above for all the block on a white background.

There are 4 corner windmills that I'm going to do in a solid green that will also make up the binding and the backing.  Here are all the fabrics together:


I have just started cutting everything and I need to hustle so I can have it finished by March when his baby is due.
