Where do you stand on the nature or nurture debate? Speaking purely from my own experience; girls are little princesses who live in castles of pink and boys like cars and everything noisy or dirty. Although at age two both my children received a ride on car for their birthday, so perhaps the appeal is universal.
Here's the back of the quilt that I recently made for my nephew. It's been unwrapped now and is all the way on the other side of the world.
If you live by the sea, as my little guy does, you're going to need the ocean on your quilt.
Who doesn't like the park for a quick swing and slide?
Happy birthday Manny! Wish I was still there to drive cars around your quilt.
