Default Boy or girl?

When your daughter is expecting your first grandchild, but wants the gender to be a surprise.

Why…..you make two baby quilts of course!!

Thinking I might not have enough time for 2, I used a panel for the boy’s quilt which I did first. When I saw how quick that went, I decided I could do some simple piecing for the girls quilt. Inspired by a heart quilt I saw online, I googled ‘piece a heart quilt block’, and got plenty of good instructions. I used leftovers from other projects; mostly a Tula Pink fat quarter bundle from a few years back. Purchased the background and border fabric from fabric.com about 2 days before they closed down!

What to do with the extra quilt once the baby is born?
Or save it for the next one 🤣🤣

When I was a little girl, I LOVED trucks. Still do, to this day. Used to frustrate me to no end that my brothers always got the Tonka trucks and I got the stupid Barbie dolls. I would throw Barbie and Ken out in the yard and run over them into the mud with the Tonkas when my brothers weren't looking. 🤣 Hang on to both quilts, you never know!

Well, it might be unexpected twins!! I love both your quilts. Keep it for the next one or for a special great niece or nephew.

I would give both to this child. They’re so cute - and it is your grandchild. When a quilt or bedding gets wet, the parents will need to reach for the next quilt that is clean and warm.

These are both so adorable. I am totally in love with the trucks. You should hold on to one of them for the next grandchild. Congratulations! It is so exciting to be a new grandma. Such a special time in your life.
