Girl or Boy?

I took my oldest daughter to help me pick out fabrics for this baby girl quilt.  She and I picked out a dozen combination's before we settled on these fabrics.  She had fun and wants to sew, which makes me happy!  We liked the nesting doll fabric because we were nesting dolls last Halloween.  She said nesting dolls are like being pregnant, and my husband speaks Russian.  The other fabrics are Riley Blake and Michael Miller.

 I quilted this quilt with a meandering daisy pattern.  It just went with the fabric really well.

The overall effect is a bit busy, but I really like the way it turned out.  My kids still use the baby quilts I made them and so it's nice for them to be bright and cheery.

I also made a blessing dress for a baby girl.  I wanted to go with the kimono theme again, so I used a side snap shirt and attached a fabric skirt to the bottom.

  I also added some lace to the top.  It is really simple and light, but should work great for tiny baby.

Now it's just a waiting game to see if I will use the boy stuff or the girl stuff.  Any guesses?

My gut tells me it's a girl, but I was always wrong with my kids, so who knows . . . Nate?
