Here is the neutral baby quilt and gift set I made for another friend expecting her first baby. They don't know the sex of the baby so I kept things in the blue/yellow/green range. I used this cute apple/pear fabric as my base with yellows and greens. The folded triangles on the quilt are sewn in on the edge, but the point is free so the baby can have something tactile. I made some bibs, burp cloths, and a nursing cover to match. I really enjoyed making these even though it was a challenge to keep the theme neutral and not sway toward girlie or boyish. While working on this I realized that there really are many more feminine options at the fabric store than masculine or neutral.

Thanks for looking!

so cheerful!  great job, and you are right on for making it either boy or girl - it is totally neutral and totally beautiful.

That fabric is so cute!  Love the appliqued bibs.

There's one in every family, and I'm an only child.
