    Default Would you give this as a baby gift for a little girl?

    Thanks to the heat and now thunderstorms, I finished this this morning. Not sure this is suitable as a baby quilt for a little girl? Just found out someone I know is expecting one. Not sure the charm pack I used is appropriate.

    I think this would be graciously accepted for a baby girl. With thee fabrics it can also grow with her and not scream baby. Love the pattern too. Great job!

    I think it would be cute for a baby girl. And like Karen said it would grow with her.

    I think it is fine. Baby quilts don't always have to be blue or pink and the fact yours is neither will just make it more special. I made my gd a baby quilt two years ago with this pattern. My dd picked out the colors, spicy orange, lime green, hot pink, aqua. I didnt like working with those neon colors very much and thought it was an odd choice for a baby, but it is what she wanted and she was happy.

    I think it's lovely! This is a quilt with a fabric selection that will allow her to use it past the baby stage.

    It certainly will be good. Moms today shy away from some of the traditional types. Also, it could be used forever!

    I have been making loads of baby quilts lately for my daughter's friends that are becoming moms and most of them like the ones that are traditional. That being said, I think this one is perfect.

    I see nothing wrong with it.
