    Is it ok to give a royal blue/duck yellow quilt to a baby girl or does it shout "boy" too much?

    It's cute, but if you want it more girly, you could applique flowers or something on it. I like the pattern!

    if it's not finished yet and it really bothers you, then use a pink backing.
    i happen to love it the way it is. if it's already done, simply embroider the child's name and date of birth in one corner in pink. on the back, embroider your name, date made, and place made, also in pink.

    I like it but you could add some pink somewhere if it bothers you.

    I think that adding flowers was a great suggestion.

    yes it looks happy, and I do like it that way. Pink might clash with the colors that you have

    How about Eyelet lace around the edge. Can't get much girlier than that. I also like the pattern and the colors. :)

    What a great idea! I think I would add white & yellow flowers plus the lace. JMHO :)

    I don't think it shouts boy...I think it shouts adorable! I'd give it like it is.

    I think your quilt is beautiful. Any baby would be lucky to have it, boy or girl. I think any color is ok for a girl baby.

    thanks all - I found out the baby is a niece 1/2 way through...I think I'll add a pink princessy backing.

    First of all I think it's very pretty. You know how fussy parents can be if it is a first child. They wouldn't dare let their little girl out of the house with blue. You should add some lace and flowers like was suggested.

    If it's not the first baby then they don't seem to care. LOL
