Wife & mom, I'm a techie who loves crafting.

My sister is having a baby in a couple of months and I've been scouring the interwebs trying to come up with a quilt for the baby.  She's not finding out the gender, so I need to make a gender neutral quilt. Right now my plan is to use prints from American Jane's new line, Bubble Pop, which comes out later this month.

I'm hoping that will help me get the same feel as the quilt I did for her last child, which also used a line by American Jane.

While I would like to keep the color palette consistent, I'd like a different look for this one.  Do you recommend a totally different pattern, or using a different HST layout?

I always like a Chevron made out of HSTs. I'm also in love with plain patchwork of 4 or 5 inch squares for baby quilts.

Well, that one you already made is gorgeous. I think you can't go wrong with a repeat of that pattern using different fabrics, they will be similar but not the same. Or another variation of stripes like MareMare suggested, chevron of equal sort of spacing and width would be very nice.


Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
