I just love surprises! I love it when couples choose to be surprised by the gender of their baby on the day of birth.
We did it both ways – we didn’t find out what we were having the first time around with Jude. With our other two sons, we did find out at the 20-week ultrasound. I would have chosen to be surprised with all of ‘em, but Josh wanted to find out, so that’s how we did it. Granted, once the decision was made to find out, I couldn’t wait to find out!
I guess I’m telling you this because of a quilt I finished recently. Our friends Lance and Nicole are pregnant with their first child. They do not know what they are having. But I still wanted to make them a quilt for a baby shower held at our church several weeks ago.
It’s tricky to make a baby quilt look like it could be for either a boy or girl. Greens and yellows are good stand-bys. I found a fabric line that fit perfectly, used a pattern I had designed quite awhile ago, and stitched it up. And then I quilted the snot out of it. Sorry, technical term.
