I usually ask the Mom what colors will go with the nursery. I have made pink; yellow and blue; green and blue. Or I use a pre-printed panel.

i love brights for baby quilts. i make alot of them since i quilt for Project Linus.

suz said...

I almost always use green in a baby quilt and then it depends on the sex of the baby and the family. I almost always use bright colors.

nancy verwest said...

I like to use pastel colors. Yellow, pick , blue, green and purple. I think the quilts look warm and cuddly.

Sharrieboberry said...

I love using blue in baby quilts. I like blue for boys and girls (I think this may have confused some people when DDs announcements were blue) But they were soooo pretty!

I like to use the colors the mom chooses. If it's a surprise, then I'll go with bright colors.

Hi!
I like to use bright colours, better for stimulating the baby and easier for them to see.
If I know who the quilt is for, it might be gender specific.
Once, I made a baby quilt for a boy with bright oranges, yellows and blues. It was greatly admired!.
We thought we were going to have a grandchild, but it was lost. So I have special brighter pastel colours waiting for our special grandchild in the future.
Thanks for the giveaway.
Take care, Leslie

It really depends upon the parents; but, if it was me, I used at least a purple or lavender in the quilt. But, that really isn't appropriate for boys. :-)

My favorite colours to use in a baby quilt are pure, bright rainbow colours. Once I had to make a baby quilt in neutrals,white, beige, cream,tan....... it was the hardest quilt I ever made just because of the colours.

Marcia said...

I match the colors to the likes/desires of the expecting couple. I prefer stronger colors because babies focus on those: hot pink, jungle greens/reds, bright greens. I do select more juvenile prints. Please enter me into your great giveaway. Thanks for your contribution to QM 100 Blocks blog tour.

Cat said...

I understand the time issue. Those folks from the East always have the advantage! Anything bright, but usually I tend to go for green, orange, and purple. Patterns usually seal my selection. Thanks for allowing me to participate in your giveaway.

I think white and soft green are my favorite for baby quilts.

Julie in WA said...

I'm non-traditionalist when it comes to baby quilts. I like odd colors like green and orange and yellow and brown! That way a quilt can last past the baby years, unless, of course, it is dog-eared and falling apart.

Mary-Frances said...

Pink for girls and royal blues and reds for boys.

I used to like pastels but now I'm drawn to brights. All different brights mixed together offset with white sashing makes a lovely baby quilt.

Laura said...

Crazy as it may be the latest baby quilt used lime, orange, and yellow. I am fond of traditional baby pastels. Thank you for the opportunity.

Regina said...

I like "subdued" primaries (Dick and Jane type) or bright brights. Much depends on the baby and the family though.

Petey said...

Baby quilts call for soft colors like buttery yellow and fresh green since you don't always know boy or girl for sure!

Nancy said...

I like to use bright colors for baby quilts. My favorite color is pink so I always like using bright shades of pink.
