    Trying to decide what quilt pattern to put on my WIP

    I'm working on a tumbler quilt and all the fabrics are insect themed. It's a baby quilt and I want it to be gender neutral. Will having flowers as the quilt pattern make it too girly? I'm thinking maybe a nice leaf pattern would be more gender neutral than flowers. I'm planning on hand quilting it so maybe ease of pattern is important too. I've only tied quilts before never actually quilted.

    Thoughts? Suggestions for different patterns?

    With insects on it, I think quilting leaves would be very appropriate and gender neutral.

    Leaves would be more gender neutral than flowers. Just my opinion.

    I don't think flowers are necessarily "girly". But you could quilt dragonflies and bees around them and then they definitely wouldn't be "girly" and it would be in keeping with your fabric theme.
