This Spring my husband and I are going to start the process of domestic infant adoption :D I'm very excited, and I really would like to start on a baby quilt project that will journey me through the sometimes long and stressful adoption process. I think a quilt will keep me focused on the end goal and give me faith that there will be a baby here, no matter how difficult this road gets.
Ok, so, that said. I'd like to do a Sunshine and Shadow pattern because they're so beautiful, I love the tradition of them, and because -this is deep- shadows prove that there are actually sun rays. Even though we don't actually physically SEE sunshine, we trust that it's there because of the shadows. It gives us hope that the sun is actually shining, even in the dark places. I'll need that hope as we go through this process.
We don't have any idea if it will be a boy or a girl, so I'm trying to decide on colors that could work either way. I prefer pastel colors to bolder ones. Any suggestions would be great.
