On the pink front - I got a baby girl quilt top together. As usual, lack of planning on my part caused for a little "Maverick" thinking! I was planning on using the lighter brown with pink squares for all of the 3.5 inch squares. Once I got into it I realized that I didn't have enough of these squares. So I improvised and used a darker brown with pink flowers. I like how it makes a medallion in the middle. This one will need a outer border. I am hoping to find something with medium sized cabbage roses on it.

I became obsessed yesterday afternoon with making a baby boy quilt. It could be caused by my recent use of too much pink. Pink is not in my usual palette so too much use must have caused a few hours of insanity. I had pulled these fabrics to make a boy quilt for a friend who is due in June. Aren't I ahead of the game? I like all the colors and textures together, but I am wondering if it is a bit too busy for a baby boy. What do you think? It won't go to waste in any case. I'll turn it into a wall hanging and hang it over my sewing table. Please feel free to give me your honest opinion. It is a good size right now so I don't think it will need a border.
