Marc came home not long ago and told me that a friend of ours is in the family way once again. It’s a little too early to know if it’s a boy or a girl so I’m making sure I’m prepared. I’m undecided whether to keep this new quilt in the same theme as the quilts for her older two children and do a sea theme or do something else entirely. Here are two very bad pictures of the quilts I made for the older two children:
Part of me is tempted to break with the theme and make the new arrival a 100-Hugs quilt from the Wedding Dress Blue blog. I have a blue and green one all ready to go for a little boy:
And I’m working on a pink and purple 100-Hugs Quilt for a girl. I haven’t had much time to sew lately so it’s been coming along slowly.
No worries whatever I decide. Baby quilts always find a home!

Either one of those two would be perfect. No need to stick with the same theme, in my opinion. I am partial to the pink and purple one, my two favourite colours. Of course, that would not work for a boy. I may have to finally bring out the fabric and sewing machine to make a quilt for the new baby girl coming to my family.
I’ve got five babies coming this spring (co-workers). 100 Hugs is a great idea – I have scraps cut already so they’d go together quickly. Love yours!
You have covered your bases beautifully.
Love the 100-Hugs quilt idea. Perfect for babies. Great job!
Both quilts are lovely. I’m not a theme person myself and I think your friends would be happy with anything you make them.
You’ve got some fantastic choices ready to go! I love the blue and green!
Too cute! I don’t think you need to stay with the theme either. Looks like you have some fantastic options!
100 Hugs baby quilt–such a great name!!! Looks like you have your bases covered for a boy or a girl!
I am sure that each one of these quilts will be loved and appreciated. Love the bright colors and I have a few of those purple prints. Paul thinks I have quilts on tap and usually I do 🙂 ready for “Oh so and so had a baby” event!!!
All are looking good!!
Both quilts are perfect for a baby and I like that regardless of the choice, this new baby is getting something unique. Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.
Lovely quilts. And any new mum would just love a quilt, it’s a unique gift & perfect for that all important ‘tummy time!
