While I am a traditional quilter and a traditional homemaker, I do find it rather sad that airplanes and sprockets are considered boy things. If a girl has a mom who is a pilot or comes from a family of engineers, they would enjoy sprockets and monkey wrenches as well as boys do. The patterns themselves are gender neutral and can be used in any color or pattern to make both boys and girls happy. Does my son who is a musician get a girl quilt or my daughter-I-l who is a scientist get a boy quilt when I make them? No, they get the quilt they wanted or reminded me of them, regardless of how we label the patterns for the sake of convenience.

Thank you, Debbie. I wholeheartedly agree! I was thinking of my granddaughter who loves the toy power drill she got for Christmas!
