    Looking for a pattern using 4 fabrics

    I am stuck, I have four pieces of fabric that I want to use to make a quilt for a sweet baby girl and I am only finding quilts using three fabrics, I really want to use all of these. Any ideas?

    You could use the two prints and one of the solids in one of those 3 fabric quilts. Then use the remaining solid for sashing or borders.

    I just did a query for 4 fabric pattern and came up with this one: http://www.inspiringcreationsblog.co...ttern-and.html

    Warm Wishes uses 4 fabrics, and so does the Disappearing 4 Patch.

    Are you able to add one more fabric? Also not sure how much you have of each print....
    This one is sort of like the Warm Wishes pattern but with a bit more interest.

    Card Trick uses 4 fabrics plus a background.

    You could do a 4-piece Rail Fence.

    I second the Warm Wishes suggestion. These fabrics would work great for a baby.

    Here is a baby quilt I made recently with 4 fabrics, which worked well as I didn't want to cut the animal fabric into small pieces. The pattern (French Weave by Patti Carey) called for more than four fabrics, but was easy enough to adapt, as there are only 2 row configurations.

    Warm Wishes is my suggestion with the floral as the focus and the purple in the center of the 3 part block.
