A very special baby quilt begins

These are some of the lovely new fabrics I'm working with for a new Single Girl baby quilt.  They came from a quilt shop that opened recently right around the corner from me.  It's called Stitch Studio and they are also the Bernina dealership.

The expectant momma has decided on an ocean theme and this is a wonderful fish fabric from Pink Chalk Fabrics, one of my favorite online fabric store.

I noticed in the Tuesday Morning flyer that they were selling these giant mats, so I hustled over and got one before they were all gone.  It's 58 inches long and 38 inches wide which just about covers my work table and means I won't have that break between the two smaller mats I used to have.  The books are weighing down the corners since it was rolled up.

The background fabric features whales, crabs, octopi, turtles, and starfish.

When Anna was here earlier in the month, she pulled fabrics from my stash and then we went shopping and found the inspiration fabrics and thus the basic color palette of aqua, orange, green, and navy blue. By far the most fun fabric is smiling sharks eating chocolate chip cookies!
