Lots O'Blocks

This weekend I spent my spare time working on quilt blocks for the baby quilt. I think I have about 30 to 35 made so far and I need 81 total. The blocks measure 6" unfinished.

I am finding myself thinking about the baby as I sew. Wondering who she'll look like...mommy, daddy, or ME. Wondering if she'll want to learn about sewing/quilting. And all those kinds of thoughts.

I'm using assorted black on white prints for the skinny strips in the blocks and below are the fabrics I have yet to use. Did you notice that I'm not using traditional baby fabrics in this quilt. Does that mean it's contemporary? I'm not a baby fabric kind of person I guess.

I'm still contemplating what to do on the background of the cat triptych, but I think I'm getting closer.
