    ...hello everyone!

    I'm new to quilting, I have been sewing for 15 years and have been interested in quilting for a while.

    friends of mine are going to have a baby boy in november and that's a great opportunity to sew a baby quilt.

    I am looking for a rather easy pattern. I'd like to include football somehow because both of the parents played and it's very important to the whole family, so I thought I'll ask around here... :-)

    I'm also interested in any other rather simple baby quilt pattern. So if there's one which would be great for a boy, please let me know!

    THANKS!

    An Around the World or a D9P either one are quite simple and can feature whatever fabric/colors you want.

    Welcome for Southeastern, PA!

    There are books called Quilts for Baby & More Quilts for Baby by Ursula Reikes that have easy patterns with good instructions. I used these books when teaching beginner quilters a while back.

    Hi from Georgia. You could do a simple 4 or nine patch with football material.

    If you go to "quiltshops.com" and type in football fabric you will find lots to choose from.

    Really easy is to check out the fabric stores to see if they have panels that you can put together with an added border. Especially if you need it in a hurry. Or do a search for baby quilts. The fabric stores have such cute baby material that I don't think you should have any problems.

    well are you talking about American football or what we call soccer? either way I would just so a very simple nine patch or four patch. I will take a pic of the one that I am making for a baby shower. I made a coordinating pillow to go with it. Will try and do that when the kids go down for nap in a couple of hours.
