Baby Quilt

Husband and I are expecting our first baby this summer and I have decided to try and make a little quilt for my offspring. Yesterday my boss's wife, who is a fantastic quilter, took me to a fabric store and we spent three hours picking out fabrics. This is the quilt that I'm aiming for:

It was done by a Carol, from Indiana based on this pattern.

I have gone with a similar color scheme, though all of my fabrics are batiks. Can anyone really resist a good batik? Here are my fabric choices:

The blues

The reds

All together now!

Next weekend I'm going to my boss's house to learn how to measure, cut and sew a block and then I'm on my own to make it happen. Right now I'm washing and drying the fabric to pre-shrink it. So exciting! I think I'll try to use this week to finish some of my other projects, like that poor little disembodied alien.
