I have some quilts that I have collected blocks for, but need help in deciding how to put them together. I am using them for either birthdays or Christmas for 2012. They are for my children, so I know they will appreciated them. I have one almost done for my brother-in-law, and I know he will love it as well. So here is what I have:
Blue and yellow - 17 squares (12 1/2"). I am trying to decide if I want to make it twin size or queen size. Probably twin size will win.
Pink and Purple 19 squares (12 1/2"). This one will definitely be queen size.
Blue and tan football quilt. For this one I have 10 squares (12 1/2") that have a plain tan and blue fabric in them, and the football piece is blue. I cannot match my colors to make more blocks. I can do a transfer I have and hand embroider a football block for each corner piece. My other option is to mix my squares with some fabric that I have that has a lighter tan print with it. I was going to use that piece for my other son, but I can change that if need be.
I have 4 baby quilts to make before June, a birthday quilt for my 2 year old granddaughter who's birthday is in June. I figure since I have most of the blocks done, I could get birthday quilts done, if I set aside so much time each day in my sewing room. I just need to organize it, so that when I do go down to quilt, my focus can be on quilting and not have my mind wander so much.
Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated.
