My SIL and my friend are both due at the end of August and neither knows the sex.  I took a gamble and made 2 quilts: one boy and one girl....I told them they had better not mess things up by having the same sex haha

First one is based on tumbling blocks, which I found the stencil for here: http://www.quilterscache.com/images12/TumbtempA2.gif I just printed this out and added 3/4" all the way around for nice big blocks to show off all the cute fabric.  I was also inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=329953.0

Quilt back is the same tiger print as the edges

For the girl one, I sued the same pattern piece and made rows of diamonds.....which are WAY HARDER.  I also forgot to iron my backing fabric, so there are a few permanent wrinkles  Undecided

Thanks for looking!  Grin

I like the girly one better. Suuuper cute! Actually, my mom was just telling me the other day how she used to make baby blankets. She made on for a friend of hers, and she just found out the baby girl is now 28 years old, and still has the blanket. They can really last!  Cheesy
