    My two youngest grandsons have asked me for a quilt with their favorite football teams...Since I don`t want to cut up the fabric into pieces that are too small, I decided to make one using the Warm Wishes pattern...however I would like to use a different pattern for the second quilt...any ideas? Thanks, Evelyn

    Have you considered a disappearing nine patch?

    Snowball quilts show off fabric nicely since you can leave them in big chunks. That would be the route I would go. You can jazz it up with a fun corner tip colors when you square them off ;)

    I just watch a tutorial on 10 minute blocks and they really are 10 minutes after you do the cutting. Anyway you can make the squares any size. I made mine 9" and the blocks are nice a big so it would really show off the team fabrics.

    Also, a window quilt would show it off.
