While I am waiting for vintage fabrics and embroidery pieces to come my way so that I can made my quasi-crazy quilt, I tried out a star block set this afternoon. I am fascinated with it! It is made by layering two squares of coordinating fabric and then cutting, sewing, cutting, sewing, etc. It results in 2 blocks that are the inverse of each other. My picture shows the prints that I used, and now I am going through my stash looking for other black and white prints.
My question is this: are polka dots considered feminine? Ideally, I would like this quilt to be gender neutral, but I am wondering if boys would maybe be less than thrilled with the dots. Please give me your opinion.
