It seems that most of the quilts I make include at least a little pink and almost always some type of floral fabric, and thus tend to be on the girlier side. A lot of that must be due to the fact that I like florals and pinks, but some of it has to do with the fact that I’m not always able to find boyish prints I like.
I was really happy to see that the new organic line, Monaco, by Jennifer Moore of Monaluna has a number of really great boyish prints (ah, those scooters!). I like these prints because they lend themselves well for a baby boy quilt, but would also be perfect for a gender neutral quilt.
I decided to go with my original Spotted Squares design (done previously here and here), because I love how it shows off a good portion of the prints. Since I was using fat quarters of each of the prints, I went with 9″ squares, which results in a pretty perfect baby quilt size (about 43″ x 51″ or so).
And now I just have to pick and purchase a backing… I love the scooters, but I also think the turquoise double dot print would make a nice backing – what do you all think?
