A Baby Gal Quilt Update

Baby Girl Quilt Top

I finished piecing together the top of the baby girl quilt!  However, since time is running away rather speedily these days, I've decided to set it aside for now.  There are more pressing crafty matters to attend to....oh, yeah, and some other non-crafty stuff as well.  I figure since Levi's baby quilt is still minus a binding, then maybe it's not so necessary to  have both a boy and a girl quilt finished upon baby's arrival.  It also dawned on me that if I did start quilting this one and out came a boy, it (the quilt not the baby) would likely sit unfinished on a shelf with safety pins in it for the next couple of years waiting for me to get pregnant again.  Sounds like a recipe for rust spots.  So, there it is....neatly packaged with coordinating backing/binding fabric, batting, and thread....waiting to see what's in store.  Will it be a boy or a girl?  Any guesses?


  1. oooh pretty colours! I think girl :)

  2. It is so beautiful!

    Has this pregnancy been different for you? Are you wearing this pregnancy differently than your son?

    Thinking I'll guess better once I know the answers to these questions.


  3. Thanks y'all!
    As far as Nell's question....There have been lots of differences, but I think most of them could be chalked up to me having started this pregnancy out 30 lbs lighter than the last one. Although, I've felt a lot more cervical pressure even in the 2nd trimester. And, I haven't had nearly as many strong food cravings as I had with Levi. As far as how I'm wearing it. I don't know. I really can't tell. :)

  4. I think it's a girl!

    Beautiful, beautiful fabric!!!!

  5. I guess girl!
    I love the cheery quilt colors. :)


I'm so glad you're here!
