Slugs and Snails, or Sugar and Spice

Sometime in the next month or so, I am going to be a great auntie for the second time, and we are very lucky in that we can claim a relationship with the new baby through both parents:  Daddy is husband's nephew, and Mummy is (was) our Au Pair in the mid 1990s, and has always felt like at least a niece to us.

We THINK we know what they are having, but if they know they are not telling, so this weekend I've started to prepare two I-Spy quilts just in case.  I usually have a mix of boyish and girly fabrics in an I-Spy quilt, but having just bought a *cough* few picture fabrics recently I had enough choice to make a very boyish one and a very girly one.

Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice
That's what Little Girls are made of

Slugs and Snails and Puppy Dogs' Tails
That's what Little Boys are made of

So far they are only strip pieced, I will use my very lazy QAYG method to attach them to a fleece blanket soon, then I only need to bind them

I know which one I am going to finish first!


  1. And they let you lose in school with that stereotypical attitude?!! Excellent x

  2. Oh it has to be a boy for the pirates!

  3. Well done! You are keeping busy!

  4. Hi Benta! Both look so beautiful and I like your sweet words from the children story! Can't remeber how the books were called but I think there were two, narrow and tall books and they were my favourites! x Teje

  5. I love them both - and maybe the little one will have a sibling from the other sex eventually ?

  6. Both fab!Hope baby arrives on time!!

  7. Both would turn out great, but I am definitely favouring sugar and spice ;-)
