I also agree that a quilt made from a panel would be easy and look fantastic. They have so many different, really cute panels! Good luck! I love making baby quilts!

Once assembled 5 x 7 blocks, I like to cut 2.5" strips for the first border and 6" or 6.5" strips for border. I've been making these quilts together and I still can't figure out how much fabric you need, approximately 2 yds of focus fabric and about half a yard for 9-patch blocks, or you can make the 9 -patch blocks 9 different colors if you would like. It's an easy quilt that works up quickly and you could probably piece, sandwich and quilt in a week or two, depending on your time available. I promise you, it's quick, easy and is beautiful when finished.
    Do you happen to have a picture of this? It sure sounds cute!

    Please post a picture of this if you can because it sounds awfully cute!

    Man oh man, thank you all for all the ideas. I don't know what warm wishes is, but I will google it. I like the Snowball quilt really well. And Jacob's Ladder. They seem like my speed. I love all the quilts actually, it's just these seem easiest to me. I can make more difficult quilts, but not by demand. So, thank you all so very much. I appreciate all your support.
