Have any of you ladies had reliable "premonitions" about grandbabies and/or the sex of grandbabies? I realize our kids get to a certain age where you just expect the babies to start showing up. Still, I didn't really know if my son and his wife were going to have kids but right about the time she got pregnant (unknown to me) I abruptly had an overwhelming conviction that a grandson was on the way. And he was, as I learned several months later.
Now, I have a feeling about TWO grandsons and perhaps a grand daughter in a couple of years. I may have flipped my lid but I am still going to start on the baby quilts when I get time. I figure they won't go to waste and, unusual for me, don't feel like I'd be jinxing anything.
My only premonition about grandbabies was about whether our first would be a boy or a girl. DS and his wife had announced that they were expecting but did not want to know the sex ahead of time. So I worked hard on a quilt for what I thought it would be. Jessica loved her boyish-looking brown/tan marching bear band quilt!
I don't think it is an oddball question. I'd say "make the quilts...the grandbabies will come."
To stay on the safe side, you could always do a neutral quilt first.

Or just make one that covers both, or make two and wait to do the quilting and finish work when you know who is coming. I usually make mine for the known or a bright universal when unknown.
If you think 2+ are coming, do you think twins are on the way!!!??
My bud, Tornado Helen has made a quilt for 12 GREATgrandchildren (plus sweater sets and booties) that aren't even a twinkle in her 11 grandchildren's eyes yet!!!! #12 grandchild might be arriving this year.

Each of the three times I have had grandchildren on the way, I had a dream about their gender. I was right each time. In fact, I told my DD that the first one was a girl, ultrasound said boy.....oops.....a girl popped out. I'm 3 for 3 now LOL
I say make the quilts, make lots of them. For your grandchildren, for gifts for others!
The only thing that I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt was that I was going to have a boy. No sonogram or anything. He was a he...no doubt about it. And that's what he is!
The grands - the parents find out so fast now-a-days that you don't really have a chance to wrap your brain around the fact that a baby's on its way before they tell you what its gender is.
However, I already know - I KNOW! - that if/when my son becomes a daddy - it will be a little boy.
(MY grandchildren were given to me by my step children.)
Does this hat make my butt look big?
I've got three kids. I'm thinking a second boy for Bill, a boy for Kate and a girl for Windy. Windy needs a husband, first. But twins run the in the family, so you never know.
And Sherry, I was absolutely sure Bill would be male, Windy was female, and Kate was male!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Penny Quilts,

Not about grandbabies but I did make a quilt and while making it, i decided it should go to my girlfriends husband. turned out he became ill very quickly. i got it made and to him before he passed.
If you feel it go with it. I used to tell people what they were having and they wanted to know how i knew. One friend I even went out and bought boy clothes for it. He hubby wanted to bet me 3 weeks of his pay against 1 week of mine it would be a girl but I sure didn't want to take the guys money. Another was a customer that had wanted a girl but only had boys then she got pregnant and i told her it was a girl and she ask how. I don't know I just do. Not all the time just a lot of the time.
