    Do you have any ideas for making a baby quilt that is not difficult? Please advise.

    Thank you so much.

    You can get a themed fabric (farm, trucks, baby animals etc.) and put it in the middle then borders around the outside.

    Stripes are fast. Find a theme fabric, make 6 inch stripes. Pick 2 more colors, and make 4 inch stripes for each side. If there is a 3rd color, make the outside border with it.

    jelly roll your favorite juvinile prints

    or use the tube pinwheel method on Missouri Star Quilt Company - I've made several baby quilts doing this and it takes no time at all!

    I just finished a "fast" one last night. I brought a panel of a nursery theme, quilted it and added binding. Looks great. Got the panel at Joanne's.
    Good luck!

    Check out "Super-Sized Nine Patch" by Anita Grossman Solomon. I got it from Quiltmaker mag. May/June 2006. You may be able to get it on their website. But I think I saw it in either last month or the month before reprinted.

    check out Kay Wood's 6 hour quilt. Her web site can be found at kaywood.com. This quilt is the top, batting & backing all put together at the same time.

    You can always buy the pre-quilted panels too - Just add binding!!
