    I love your quilt. I’ve used green and blue in two baby quilts mostly because I thought using the right shades it can go either way. I recently did a pillow in gray and yellow though and loved it so I think my next baby quilt will have to be in those colors.

    Congratulations on having a pattern in the book, Shea! My favorite combination is lime greens, grays, and a little bit of orange (like orange sherbert orange). I love that it works equally well for boys or girls.

    I just finished a baby quilt with bright baby blues, greens and yellows on a background of white. I liked the colors a lot and think I’ll use this color combination again.

  23. Kathy

    I like using teal (lime or aqua also work) with orange for a boy. I have also used yellow with oranges and bright pinks for a little girl.

    I just finished a baby quilt in brights, blues, yellows, oranges, reds and white. Also, I recently purchased some beautiful lime green and gray fabric that I’m going to create into a child’s quilt.

  25. Ele W.
    April 19, 2013

    I mostly love to use any bright or jewel tones, as many babies respond to the lively colors a lot. Gives them exercise in reaching and grabbing, not to mention catching drools.

    Congratulations on you contribution to the book, a great achievement. Colours that I’m loving at this moment are tangerine, lemon & yellow with, for a girl, strawberry and pink and for a boy, lime and green, both on a white background. Yummy!

  27. Cindy Wienstroer

    I have made many baby quilts – muted blues, reds & yellow; green & pink; pink & brown; primary colors: soft greens & blues with touch of yellow; next one will be grays, b&w, with small pops of colors like spring flowers.

    I like to use brights for baby quilts. I’m working on 2 now, one with primary brights and one with bright blue and green.

    I don’t really have just one color combination that I use for baby quilts (other than the traditional blue and pink). I like to use the colors of the sports teams that the couple cheer on. Then when they wrap up the baby or toddler to go to the game, they are all set.

  32. Arlene Thomas

    I love the simple but effective design of your baby quilt. Very versatile…as a baby quilt or a full size quilt…using different colors also give it a different look. Great!

    Great pattern, one I will use for the next baby quilt in shades of lavender and rose and gold. The last one I made, for a grandson, was in shades of yellowy-green and yellow and light blues with a little lavender, a great neutral. I learned that when I had no purple in my stash and it was my granddaughter’s favorite color. So now………………..Lots of Purple in all shades and it finds it way into every quilt I make.

  35. Karen F

    aqua or turquoise with pink orange and grey. Lime green rasberry and black for my youngest grandaughter and I still like a red and white with some touches of green and blue that I made long ago. (and still have a UFO top that I made from the leftovers.)

    I am expecting a new grandson this summer. His room is painted grey and yellow. The accessories are orange. I hope to see a quilt in your book to use the color scheme.

    April 19, 2013

    I don’t really know what is popular right now for baby quilts, but right now I am leaning towards the grays with either yellow or green highlights… Especially if you don’t know what the baby is yet. Thanks for the opportunity of winning this cute book.

    I fell in love yesterday when I saw your quilt in my Martingale email! Absolutely stunning and as you say – can be so flexible. If colors are not requested I normally use bright bold colors with the opposing pastel. This pattern is perfect for this. When baby grows it can be used to show colors – dark and light.
    Can’t wait to get this pattern and book!

  43. Tamie

    Sounds like a great book! Can’t wait to see it.
    I love making baby quilts in bright schemes – I often include turquoise and yellow- or red (gender neutral) – and when it’s for girls or boys specifically I like an analogous color scheme – melon, yellow, pink or turquoise, green, blue

    I like to use bright primary colors on baby quilts. I just finished a fun quilt with royal blue, lime green, orange and black. The black sashings make the other colors pop and I am thrilled with how it came out. I love your pattern because it allows you to really play with colors. Thanks for sharing,

    I like non-primary colors, especially yellowed shades of green. It makes other colors pop.
    I make quite a few baby quilts to give away as gifts, and this book features some quilts I would love to make.

    Well, put me in the crazy camp too, because hubby & I waited to find out until our sweet girl was born. I’m still 100% in the neutral grellow camp for baby quilts. Actually, I just made a nursery pillow in aqua & dark peacock for a little girl (I threw in the tiniest pops of pink), so that was a fun twist to not make something so ooey-gooey girlie.

  59. Christine
    April 19, 2013

    My favorite colors for a baby quilt are aqua blue and brown. There are so many beautiful prints/etc in aqua that I have quite a collection. I have two grandbabies coming this year so I have sent these wonderful “Modern” baby quilts example to my girls for them to choose what they want. Of course they will have a say in fabric selection — I’ll find out if I get to use my favorites.

  66. Robbin Golden
    April 19, 2013

    Aqua, turquiose, or teal and brown are my favorite combinations for two color quilts. If I use more than two, red, black with accents of primary colors is engaging for babies and toddlers. I’ve found your quilts and quilting inspiring!

  67. Bonnie Goodrich

    It might be a bit offbeat, but I like unexpected combinations, like orange and teal.

  71. Mary Jordan
    April 19, 2013

    This is hard because I like to personalize the quilt to the baby’s family. I don’t make a quilt for all baby showers or announcements I receive. I have found that if I make the quilt to fit the baby’s room today, the quilt will be put away once the room is updated from newborn to toddler. For this reason I gravitate towards colors that will stimulate the baby today and one that can grow with them – especially the quilts for boys. I want the quilt to be one that is toddler friendly. I just finished a quilt for a baby boy that lives in Maine. I used the train panel for the center and used lots of color for the borders – wanted it to be bright and cheerful because where this family lives can tend to have lots of gray days. Another baby quilt that is on my table to be quilted is for a girl and this one I choose the newer trendy colors of aqua, orange, green and browns since this family is more trendy than traditional in the styles they choose. I love the simple blocks in Shea’s design and will give those a try – right now panels have been my lifesaver between working full time and getting my garden in, time is precious.

    Congrats!!! The last baby quilt I made for a little girl was coral, peach, aqua & olive and for a little boy was red, blue, gray and white. They both turned out very nicely.

  74. Nancy Green
    April 19, 2013

    I like using green & purple in baby quilts–soft or bright, depending on parental preference. I have one to make for a friend’s daughter who is expecting in a few of months and I would love to have this book for inspiration!!

  75. ritainalaska
    April 19, 2013

    shades of yellow for baby girls and shades of green for baby boys works for me, but my grandaughter asked for blue and shades of grey to black for her baby boy. and that may be a new favorite.

  76. SueAnn Wirick

    I have a little boy quilt to make and it will be in earth tones as requested by the Mom and Dad. I might add a bear or 2 to it also.

  77. MarciaW
    April 19, 2013

    My favorite color combination to use in baby/toddler quilts is bright! I like bright green, aqua, orange, red, yellow, prints, stripes, and dots. Then, if want to be more gender specific, can add either a bright blue or bright pink. I love windmill blocks and also snowball blocks with lots of contrast.

  85. Barbara

    I see this quilt in a variety of bright florals for the wheels and a coordinating solid for the center square. That would work for a baby size or for a bigger one. I loved seeing your color choices in this great pattern.

  94. Janet Ernst
    April 19, 2013

    Love your quilt! This big kid can see me making this for me, hehe. I love when I see quilts made up in two different colorways, you know us visual people. We also waited to find out what gender our kids were. We did great, a boy and a girl. I have only made one baby quilt and I used a themed fabric of jungle animals. I used bright fabrics as well, yellow, blue, green, red and white.

    Thank you and Martingale for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.

    We are from the crazy find out when it arrives people too. I had a feeling and hope our Little Miss was a Little Miss and was delighted. If I was making quilts for the unknown sex baby I would love to use Red and Blue and White (classic and timeless and with minimal white not hard to keep clean with bubs), I have also seen really lovely citrus tone quilts with grey (Yellow, Orange & Lime with grey)

  125. Susan K
    April 20, 2013

    If I know the sex of the baby and/or the colors in the nursery, that’s the colors I use. I like the scrappy look for babies as that can hide a lot of stains and isn’t “too baby” for use into their toddler years. My favorite colors are blues and greens, so I love the boy colorway in this quilt!

  126. Cecilia
    April 20, 2013

    Your quilt is awesome! I like to use a print to go with the baby’s parents’ theme, and then use complementary colors. But, if on my own, I like the turquoise, deep yellow and hint of hot pink and grey…kinda funky ;-)

    I love all colors for all baby quilts and in almost any combination! What I do LOVE to do with most of my baby quilts is to add a black and white fabric as the accent color. It just adds that little “something”!

    I love using bright primary colors for baby quilts. Although your pastel “girl” quilt is very sweet. Congrats on your pattern.

  132. KatieQ

    My favorite was a scrappy flannel quilt. I sashed it with purple (!) so the scraps actually looked like wonky windows. I really liked the way it turned out. Thanks.

    I haven’t made one yet, but have my first grandchild coming; I’m waiting to hear if it’s a boy or a girl. If it’s a girl, I think I’m making a purple/green quilt!

    I’ve used grey, yellow and purple for my granddaughter, mainly purple tones with purple heart appliques and yellow flower appliques. Our grandson is getting a simple modern design with grey shades, yellow and black with geometric designs and no borders. Hope he loves it!

    When I make a baby quilt for a specific person, I will find out what colors the mom wants, or what colors are used in the nursery. If I don’t know or can’t find out, I tend to use 30′s prints.

  141. Shannon Bielke
    April 21, 2013

    Having a new granddaughter in the family, I’ve been using pink, browns, purples and greens! Lovely and colorful!

  142. Mona

    I love brights of all kinds. Research shows babies respond more to brights than pastels, which is good for their development. I’m happy to comply.

  143. Karrie Smith

    Love your baby block quilt: the blues and greens are so great!! I haven’t made too many baby quilts, but the one I made that wasn’t blues was a primary color scheme, and I love how bright and happy it is!! (if you want to see it, here’s the link:

    Favorite… well, I have made a few and they were all different in an attempt to be suitable for the recipient. But if I have to choose lets see .. I ‘d go for going for pale aqua, apricot, pink and pistachio… kind of light but deliciously fresh and new with dark brown accents.. yummy chocolate drizzling for my sweet bundle of love. Thank-you for being so kind and congratulations your quilt is stirring me to do something soon quiltwise..it’s lovely.

    I love to use primary colors and will often use colors that are tied to the season. For example, mid-summer can feature yellow/orange or go patriotic with red/blue. I like to use white or grey as a neutral background, sometimes in combination for an extra fresh spark.

  209. Kathy
    April 17, 2014

    I love orange – and ironically – my favorite colors to pair with it are blue or pink. If I really can’t do one of those – brown is fun.
