    I have a grandbaby due in October. So far the little bugger will not cooperate with the ultrasound (has crossed it's legs). The problem is I am so wanting to start a quilt. Any ideas of patterns and colors that I could start that is not all pink or blue. The mom does love blue and red, but I want this to look at least somewhat babyish. Any ideas?

    Orange, Yellow and Green.
    A Duck quilt would be gender neutral.

    I love the fat cat patterns and most of them would be fine for either a boy or a girl.

    Just use the primary colors, red, blue and yellow, very bright and wether it is a boy or girl it will work.

    Duckies, teddy bears, turtles, are some themes to consider.

    One time I did a baby quilt 9P w/alternating white blocks. In the white blocks, I hand quilted a duck, rabbit, dog, cat, etc. Came out really cute and was gender neutral.

    By the way, congrats grammie!!!!
