Now that I have Kalissa’s baby quilt done I need to move on to making one for Kelli’s new baby. I had made this one for Carver….
Kalissa said that if I didn’t mind, she’d like the same quilt for the new baby. So, I made this…
Originally I had planned to make Kelli some sort of quilt for her baby using Lori Holt’s book Farm Girl Vintage.
But…then Kelli saw Kalissa’s baby quilt and thought she just might want one for her baby in the same style….
Well, Kelli is not finding out if it is a boy or a girl so….what do I do? I know I could make one like I just made as it’s not really overly boyish but….I pulled these fabrics….
and these fabrics. I’ve always thought about making a crumb quilt that was more “girly” using these fabrics and replacing the red and using purple or pink.
Doesn’t that look fun!! I love the idea….BUT….
Will Kelli have a boy or a girl? Do I make a boyish one and wish for a boy or a girlish one and wish for a girl?
Then I remembered that Bonnie Hunter has this quilt, Crumble Jumble, in her new book.
While I have all the stuff still out from Kalissa’s quilt, I could make the blocks for this. If Kelli has a boy, I will pull the blocks and use them for Kelli’s baby quilt. If I get these done, I’ll could move on and make a girl version of the quilt. That way I would be covered either way. Kelli already knows that I likely won’t have a finished baby quilt for her to bring home with the baby and she doesn’t mind.
So what’s up for me next…56 crumb blocks to make this quilt or possibly turn it into a baby quilt later…OR I could start the “girl” version. Hmmm. What do you think readers…will Kelli have a boy or a girl? Which should I do first?
