For my multi-colored blankets, I've always used all the colors (regardless of whether someone thought it was a "girl color" or a "boy color" and regardless of whether it was for a boy or a girl).
You rebel, you!
I bet you'd even put your buttonholes on the left side simply because you don't have a maid to dress you. Good grief. What's the world coming to?
I think pastels for babies, blue for boys and pink for girls, have seen their heydey and I for one won't mourn their demise. When I had babies I loved the brighter colors and with a baby born in 1976 there was a lot of red, white, and blue around.
