First Quilt...first step done

I have taken the first step in making my first quilt....

I have picked out the fabric!!! I've decided to go with Amy Butler fabrics from the Belle and Lotus collections. The main fabric is going to be the lime/full moon polka dot in the Lotus/Damask Rose Collection. Everything else will coordinate with the lime. I'm working on ordering the fabric and then hopefully I can get started.

My goal is to get it done by this time next year!

Are you going to piece it yourself and have someone machine quilt it for you? Because if you are, I know a great woman in Arkadelphia who did all of mine. I've quilted a lot and hope to work on another one for Sam. They're time consuming but FUN!

How exciting! I made my first quilt last year using Anna Maria Horner fabric. I'd love to see some shots of your work in progress.

I'll post picks as I go. I've had problems finding the lime/full moon polka dot but finally found some.

Kendra...I'm going to machine piece myself and try and quilt it myself by hand. There is also a lady in Glenwood that machine quilts. If I give up and decide to machine quilt I'll have to find out who you used. I noticed Michael Miller is coming out with some cute fabric that would be great for boys quilts.
