Would you / did you find out the gender of your baby whilst pregnant?
It’s a question I’ve recently asked myself, because one of the orders I recently received has requested a gender neutral baby quilt. In our circle of friends, almost everyone who has been expecting has found out the gender of their baby at their 20 or so week scan, so it’s not something I’ve really thought about until now. When the time comes, I think I’d like to keep it a secret .. Only because I think it’s one of the only things that is truly a surprise in life.
Anywho, I trotted off to get some fabric for this quilt and found that a lot were obviously boy or girl fabrics, or suited to different themes. I thought a rainbow was gender neutral, and because I love chevron so much, I went with a chevron pattern with white in between.
I know a rainbow has purple in there too, but the tones were definitely suited to a girl .. So I decided to skip that.
Here’s my completed quilt top. I’ll take a close up of the white fabric, because it has some polka dots on it which are just adorable.
I took the plunge and decided to invest in a walking foot too! So I started quilting last night. The quilt top is cotton, and the quilt back is flannel so I’m really glad I invested and bought the genuine walking foot .. It has already been so helpful so far!
Let me know your thoughts – you know I love to hear them!
