Need a new baby quilt pattern?
A new baby is on the way and this Grandma is excited. The ultrasound shows that it is a girl and Mom and Dad are busily picking out colors and deciding on names, as they make plans for their new addition. Yet this Grandma is hesitant. Should I start a pink quilt for a little girl or one with flowers, butterflies or maybe lavender quilt with some ruffles?
From personal experience, this Grandma has learned that an ultrasound can be wrong. My two sons were both to be little girls if you believe those tests. Granted technology has improved since my sons were born, clearly a blue baby blanket for a little girl’s nursery can be avoided and ruffles for a boy’s room just isn’t cool for anyone to give as a gift to a new “little man.” To avoid this mess, try a green or yellow quilt and add a touch of light brown or shades of tan. Even small amounts of blue or pink as accent colors will not suggest either a boy or girl but will liven up the light pastels.
Adding patterns, such as chicks, teddy bears, or even the alphabet would brighten up any nursery and would make a memorable baby shower gift. These can be a one-of-a-kind handmade baby blankets sewn with either 100% cotton, cotton flannel, or by piecing minky for a touch of softness, which can be treasured for years to come will not favor either the boy or girl décor.
Congratulations on the new addition to the family. Start a handmade baby quilt today without worrying whether it will be a boy or a girl. There is always a baby quilt pattern both in color and design to fit your need and style.
