    I have been asked to do a baby blanket. Going to do a regular 9 patch (3 rows of 3 blocks) using boy type fabrics. The baby is due in May and will be a boy.
    What would you use - sailboats, sports, etc.? I need ideas please
    Thank you

    Sock monkey blankets are all the rage now. When I deliver Project Linus blankets to our clients, those are the first to be chosen by the children.

    How are they going to decorate the babies room? Take that into consideration when deciding on what pattern. Baby animals are always a big hit as well as cars, ect.

    I'll be reading this thread for ideas as well. My brother's wife is having another baby, and the room is bumble bee themed. I just can't bring myself to make a quilt that will cover a little baby with bees. I think I found a cute frog fabric that I might use. His quilt from me will not be according to the room theme.

    I've done room theme baby quilts but they outgrow them so quickly. Lately I've done them with brightly colored shapes and letters/numbers for baby to lay on when they start to be on the floor. It's a lot of work. I would ask the mom to be what she would like.

    I don't know, the mother has no idea that this is going to be made for her, this will be a surprise for her.

    I did find some cute "truck" fabric that I like, thought it would be a good one for the 9 patch theme I am doing with this project.

    I usually try to make more of a toddler type of theme. They outgrow baby so quickly. I am making 2 for twin boys to be born in April. They will both be of the same pattern but differnt animal prints. They are juvenile looking animals in bright colors but not primary colors. Will post when done. I have made "I Spy" quilts for baby gifts also. I usually make them a bit larger so they can use those longer too.
