I had my big ultrasound last Friday and everything looked good with the wee new baby-to-be. To my surprise (and frustration), the ultrasound tech pronounced herself “75-80% sure” it’s a girl. Surprise, because I was thoroughly convinced it was going to be a boy, as was the rest of my family. Frustration, because I do NOT care for 20% uncertainty, whether boy OR girl! It’s making me a little gun-shy on proclaiming things for one gender or the other, but I decided to just go for it and pull fabrics.
Oh, that’s right. I pulled out almost my entire hoarded stash of Heather Ross (not counting Far Far Away, that’s her sister’s quilt). It’s mostly Mendocino with a bit of Lightning Bugs thrown in. I only took out the orange/blue/brown dots and stripes and the blue dogs. All of the pink and fishy prints stayed in.
I may have even found inspiration this morning on what to do with it. From Ashley, of course.
What do you think? Take any of the prints out? (Looking at the stack, I wonder if I need to pull that dark purple, or find another one to add.) Add solids? Leave it as is? Any other quilt design you’d do? I haven’t cut anything yet…
