Baby Boy's Quilt

How has it been more than a month since I've posted anything here???!!!  Ah, well!  This post is short but scrumptious!!!

With our little man due to arrive in 9 weeks or so, I've been kicking into high gear to work on his baby quilt among other nesting type projects.  Sadie and I picked out these fabrics for him...love the brightness and fun.  These colors make me feel happy!

I'm basing this pattern on a free tutorial (Raw Edge Circle Quilt) from one of my favorite quilting blogs, Cluck Cluck Sew.  I'm hoping to begin sewing the circles onto the squares today...after a smidge of ironing.  I really appreciate the scrappy feel and "eyeball it" approach in this pattern since I rarely like to follow the rules when it comes to quilt making.  Fussy stuff hinders my freedom to do what feels right when creating.  Some projects don't turn out how I imagine them but that's the way I roll.

Blessings to you today!!!
