Scrappy Geese

Today I started the Geese in the Forest block of the month project by Anina at Twiddletails. I've got a yellow block and a lavender block done, and fabrics picked out for green, blue, and pink. I need to look through my reds and pick out some pieces for a red block, too.
I'll post another picture with better lighting soon.

I've been window shopping for quilt fabric online. Here are some of the ones I really like at the moment:
Hello Betty--I like the 30's colors and the modern ones too.
Neptune--I really like this one a lot. I love the kelp shapes in the "Pacific Paisley" print.
I like all the Basic Grey lines--Sultry has some prints that would be perfect for a baby girl's dress. And I just discovered the Christmas fabric sneak peeks--look at this Figgy Pudding fabric. I really like the trees, and the snowflakes. So gorgeous.

I'm also thinking about Mountain Baby Blankets. Rachel is collecting handmade baby blankets for teen mothers in Appalachian Kentucky. I think I'll work on a simple quilt for this, starting this week.
