    This baby quilt....boy or girl?

    I needed to make 2 baby quilts......one for a boy, one for a girl.

    This is the first one. It's been finished for over a month and I still haven't started the other one.

    Before I start the second, I'd like to know if this one is more appropriate for a boy or girl. What do you think?

    i would use it for either gender as it is so beautiful. however, the nice strong colors are good for a boy.

    Beautiful quilt. I'd say either, but would probably lean towards a boy. Can't wait to see the girl quilt!

    This is a really good example of a gender neutral quilt. There is nothing about it to say boy or girl. It's just a great looking quilt. Make the other one the same!

    Boy or girl both. We seem to think of soft colors for a girl and bright ones for a boy but I've been told that the babies are attracted to the bright colors in the quilts I've made for them

    With that said I'm having a problem choosing the fabrics for the quilt for my soon to be born first great grandchild. I bought several yards of medium hue 30's repro fabrics and a lovely white on white fabric to us but keep changing my mind about which ones to use to make it look unisex. Need to get it started ASAP as the baby shower is in 2 weeks. Think I'll go with blue, yellow, mint with the WOW for background. When the baby is older I can make a bigger one in colors that suit it more.

    I'm sorry. I should have put this information in when I first posted.

    Pattern is from Clotilde and is called Diamond Patch.
    Here's a link.

    That is an amazing quilt, as for gender, it really could go to either. Bright colors are always good for little ones.

    It's wonderful and definitely would work for both genders. There are some parents that personally prefer not using such gender "specific" colors such as pink and blue. This is also a quilt that will "grow" with the child...I can see a child using this for many, many years as it's also not "babyish".
