    I would find out if they mean gender neutral or color neutral.

    I think the Pinwheel/Rail Fence quilt would be beautiful in shades of browns and beiges. I have the pattern available on my blog at http://www.colormequilted.com with one or two corners of the rail fence as pinwheels.

    There are lots of different browns and beiges, and I would stick to the warmer shades to give the quilt a homey feel.

    colors ranging from off white, thru beige and into the browns, maybe including black.

    I had a request for a Wedding Quilt and the colour palette I was given was 'Pebbles and Cream'!!! I took this as a neutral palette!! This was my interpretation!! Just lots of soft beiges, pinks, turquoises,blues and creams!! They were delighted with it!!!!

    That is exactly what I thought of when you said "neutral". To me that means it will go with anything.

    Are they registered for gifts anywhere? You could look at their registry on line and perhaps get a sense of what they mean by "neutral".

    the mother just might be referring to the color of the walls as being neutral,ie white, beige,taupe, green is also considered a neutral color.

    Creams, tans, browns would be my guess.

    ETA: what about doing a sampler with various shades of creams, tans, and browns?
    That would be my recommendation, also.
