    I have these fabrics to make a quilt for a friend's daughter. She has given strict instructions that it is to be simple, because her daughter won't appreciate the amount of work in a complicated design.

    So I'm thinking simple 12" squares on point, but then I'm stuck.

    I have tonnes of the fabrics shown, but only 2 12" squares of the white on black (on the right hand side of the picture).
    I'm thinking of making those two black squares a feature, but can't come up with anything that balances.





    There's a full yard of each of these, and I can get more, except for the black on the right side, there is only two 12 inch squares of that.

    What about Yellow Brick Road or Turning 20? Could use pretty much any fat quarter pattern for it. Pretty easy and quick.

    Could try a Take 5 pattern.
    They go together quickly easy to do, they look more complicated than they are.
    Similar to the turning 20 and ybr.

    A Turning 20 quilt would be fast and easy and looks a lot harder than it is!

    Or a disappearing 9 patch so you can use up the small squares.

    What about the warm wishes using the black and white cats ( the ones on the right and all the way to the left )as the focus squares, alternating . Then you could use the others for the strips, does that sound right ? Just a thought . But let us know what you decide

    Try Autumn Tints 2 from Quilterscache.com. It makes up an 8" block, easy to put together and will use 4 different colors. You could do 2" sashings around each block to enhance the blocks themselves! :roll:

    You guys rock... thank you!

    I had a total mental block on this one, serves me right for pushing it to one side and saying it will be easy to "whip up" later! lol
