And baby... if you're a boy...

Pin It ...then this will be your quilt.

"If it's a boy" quilt

I made it with sweet little puppy dogs, and colors that I thought were as handsome as you will be.  And I threw in lots of contrast... so you'll move your little eyes over all the different pieces.

The fabric is as soft as you'll be.

Even on the back.

Your big brother is getting excited to meet you.  Last night he was carrying his teddy bears around, telling me that he was holding his baby brother or sister, and laying them down gently, and setting them next to him to watch Finding Nemo.  (Though he is rather convinced you're a girl.)

Truth is baby, we're all exited to meet you.  
We're doing all we can to give you a happy entry in to the world.
Even if I can't believe how soon it is going to be.

Specs for my bloggy friends - 

The colors were inspired by Aneela's puppy dog Pips.

Pattern is a modified Bento -- measurements courtesy of Kelly... (she lists them here)
The border is a gorgeous Slatey blue Cross Weave from Moda.  
Quilted in an all over stipple/meander, and bound with some French General wovens.
