I'm Going to do the Charming Girls Quilt Along!!

I am planning on taking part in the quilt along over at the Charming Chatter Blog to make this cute little quilt.

My sweet Great-niece is finally getting another child that she and her husband have been trying for for so long. After lots of prayer and fertility treatments they are expecting a boy in July. I plan to make this one for her but am using the Nautical and Nice charm packs from Sandy Gervais and what could be more fitting than Red White and Blue for a July baby. I am posting my fabrics on here so that others in the quilt along can see what I am using. I will put on an additional border to make it a little bigger and put sailboat blocks in each of the 4 corners. Here are the fabrics I am using.
The white with tiny pale blue spots is my background fabric and the light blue will be the outer border and the sailboat blocks in each corner will be dark blue with red sails and the white background. I think it will be super cute.
Have a great weekend to every one.
