    Looking for suggestions

    I am looking for suggestions on what kind of quilt to make for a friend who is having her first baby. She is very traditional in most things and I cannot seem to settle on a particular pattern.

    I Spy is always nice. Think of it as a giant, soft picture book, which can also be used to comfort and keep the child warm.

    One of my favorite patterns for a baby quilt is a rail fence. Fast and easy and they always look good.

    Those are sew cute. Love the polka dots and stripes.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I like rail fence or just a 4 patch with alternating blue and white or pink and white. If I don't know anything about the baby I make pastel green and white.

    I'm always on the lookout for beautiful, yet simple baby quilt patterns. All of these are great!
