If "learn to quilt" is on your lofty goals list this might be the perfect starter quilt. It's small enough that you'll stay motivated to see this project through to the end and the skill level is basic enough that you'd have to try pretty hard to screw it up.
The garden motif is not only fitting for this time of year, but fitting as a gift for a young or still gestating baby. You can find the pattern for this 25-inch x 36-inch mini quilt on The Purl Bee. If you don't already have a fabric stash waiting in the wings, Purl also sells a kit with all the needed materials. So go ahead and reap what you sew (you knew I couldn't resist).
