For Andrew

My cousin Andrew and his girlfriend (mental note, find out what her name is!) are having a baby this winter.  A first grandkid for my aunt and uncle, a first great grand for my grandmother - and Andrew is the baby of all of us cousins!  So, of course, a quilt.

I wanted to get this made up before the baby comes, which should be around Christmas.  For entirely selfish reasons, I'll admit.  I have to be in Vancouver on the 10th and can hand deliver it rather than paying for postage.  Do you know how much I hate paying shipping?  Lots!!  Anyway, I don't know what type of baby they're having.  Yes, I know it's going to be human, but other than that, not so much.

So last night as I was finishing up the top I asked my husband if he thought this quilt would still be ok for a baby boy what with the pink.  Because I don't know if it's a boy or a girl.  So he looks at me and says: "are we having a baby?"  I wanted to say yes and watch him poop his pants, but no, I told him the truth.  Really, what kind of freak does he think he married that I would tell him we were having a kid by asking him if a quilt has too much pink?  Have my mood swings been that bad??  Silly hubbers!


Pin It


  1. I think it's a joyful, scrappy, colourful quilt that will be great for a new baby boy or girl! Making a quilt before telling your husband you were pregnant would be quite the extreme way of sharing the news!

  2. hahaha. Fun hubs story. And a darling quilt!

  3. Hehehehehe! What a funny story!

    Your quilt is great! Boys should be able to enjoy pink, too. ;)

  4. hahahaa!
    I love the quilt- what is the pattern called?
    I suck at gender neutral quilts- argh, it's too hard for me! This one is lovely!

  5. Too funny to read about your hubby, this could have been said by my partner too (ignoring the fact, that I'm too old for getting pregnant).
    The quilt is fresh and concerning your pile of unquilted tops: send them over, I'll quilt them for you ;-)

  6. Yay for human babies! And I would have love to see the look on his face!!

  7. Oh, and the quilt top is lovely! Scrappy tops are at the top of my list!
