It's a Girl!

Even before we got pregnant, we decided we would wait for the baby was born to find out the gender. We wanted that "it's a boy/girl" moment in the delivery room and thought it was worth waiting the extra 6 months. That is, until we got pregnant and I realized I would be significantly limited in my knitting and sewing for the little one. I'm not a boy=blue / girl=pink type, but I would certainly make different selections for the nursery and wardrobes. So, I've been counting down to June 19th for the past oh, two or three months. Our "big" ultrasound.

It's a girl!

The wheels immediately started turning and my brain spilled over with ideas for must-knit baby sweaters and booties and of course, the bedding set. After spending at least 4 or 5 hours pouring over fabric online (seriously), I finally just went to my local quilt shop (LQS? Does that work?) to see some fabrics in person. I decided every baby deserves Amy Butler and stocked up on some prints from her Midwest Modern line. She really outdoes her self with every new collection, doesn't she?

Here's the haul...

I'm excited about my choices, modern and not super girly. Plus, the fabrics match her sage green nursery. Bonus.

All the fabric is washed and pressed and a pattern has been chosen. I'm hoping to make some good progress this weekend.
