I want to make a baby quilt for my new niece on the way. She is due in February so I have time. I want to make it with the disappearing 9 patch pattern. I don't actually have a pattern and was going to try and wing it. How much of each fabric do I need if I want to use either 4, 5, or 6 fabrics? Sorry, I don't know how many I want to use yet. I want the quilt to be about 38" X 45", the same size as the quilts for kids (that's the same size my other nieces and nephew got). Thank you all for your help. I was hoping to find some good deals on fabric when it's on sale. I haven't heard of any black friday cyber-sells for fabric yet.
I just realized that QFK has the pattern for one using 3 fabrics. I want one with more variety 4, 5, or 6 fabrics.
