Fabric Audition: Bells & Whistles

I'm getting ready to make a baby quilt next week for an old friend of mine who's expecting a little boy. This week's fabric audition is my preliminary fabric pull. I may add a few more prints to this, but so far it's working for me. The colors are happy and the prints are very child friendly -- just what a baby quilt ought to be.

"Bells & Whistles," I thought suddenly as I was thumbing through these fabrics, and the name stuck. I love making baby quilts, and I can't wait to start working on this one.

By the way, there's a very good chance that one of my fabric auditions will be hitting the big time soon (i.e. you will actually be able to purchase one for yourself if you like what you see). I'm more than a little excited and will be quite happy to give you all the details when I have them.
