A Quilt For Cael

I decided to make a crib quilt for Cael. Yeah.... we finally picked a name for our little boy. Anyways, I really wanted to make him something special and all boy. For fabrics I decided to use some of my hubby's old work shirts that he no longer wears. I love that he will be wrapped up in his daddy's shirts! I'm planning to use some solid white as well. And, for the back I chose a baby blue quilters cotton with tiny polka dots in green, brown, white, blue, etc.

It took me a while to settle on a pattern. I found this one and I totally fell in love with it. Simple, yet not squares. I even love the little elephant. I may try and add something to my quilt like that. Maybe his initials? The pattern is a free one my Amy Butler found here. It's called the Lotus Quilt. My goal is to have it done before the baby shower. So... 3 ish weeks. It's a big task, but I think I can do it. If I don't make it that's ok. He still has 10 more weeks to finish growing inside me. I'll post more pics as I go.
