Autumn Inspired Baby Quilt: Getting Started

After cleaning up my site and organizing the project gallery, I realized that it has been months since I finished a quilt. During that time, I've been gathering fabric and storing it away because I've had so many other projects on my plate. I just couldn't walk past the organized stacks anymore. I had to start a quilting project. So against my better judgement, knowing what other projects are still lingering around me, I grabbed one of the piles of fabric and said, "I'm doing this!"
This past summer, I picked up several cuts from the Boho line by Urban Chiks for Moda. I chose many from the  Earth, Clementine and Scarlet colorways. The prints are warm and feminine without being too girly. When I got home, I paired them with some prints from my stash  -- the stripes from Bonnie and Camille's Marmalade line and a couple prints from DS quilts.
These designs reminded me of Autumn and I wanted to work on a smaller project before it felt more like winter. All these squares will be paired and sewn together into half square triangles (HST) for a baby sized quilt.
I can't wait to get started! More to come soon.

Have a great Monday!
