Well I got some cutting done last night and ran out of steam - its amazing how that can happen when you are almost 36 weeks pregnant!!!
I was able to cut up the 6 fat quarters that I want to use as the main body for the quilt and zip them through the rag quilt die for the Accuquilt in no time.
I quite like the fabric combinations that came in the fat quarter bundle. I'm just going to arrange them in a random pattern on the quilt top and then edge the entire thing in a dark green flannel I picked up tonight.
I have decided that I'm not going to put batting in the middle of the layers - its mostly going to be a throw blanket that will go down for tummy time or to cover the stroller so I don't need it to be too thick. Plus I figure since its my first one I'll keep it somewhat simple so I don't get too caught up in the details so I can finish it before the little guy makes his appearance!
