Default Pastel Baby quilt

Mom made these blocks when she was alive. She has been gone now twenty years. I finally had time to put them into a quilt to pass though the family when a couple has a baby. Not sure when that will be, but it is all ready for them when it happens. I have a few nephews and nieces, so it is possible someday.
Here it is, I am thinking maybe either gender?? What do you all think? Pretty flowery, but, maybe they won't mind. The second pic shows the backing.

I love to hear or see when some handwork is passed from generation to generation. This made a beautiful quilt for a precious baby girl! ( you did ask what we think) Beautiful flowers and colors.

I love the idea. What a great memorabilia of your mom and her beautiful embroidery work. You picked amazing colors that perfectly coordinate too.

Love it that you used your Mom's blocks. It will be a family heirloom.
