    I need a pattern for a cute, but fairly easy baby quilt for my great grandchild due in November. (I am only 57 and am too young to be a great-grandmother. LOL). I want something that is more than just 4 patches and having few colors, but yet fairly easy since I still am a beginner at quilting. Don't know the sex yet, so need to work baby colors into it. Thanks for your help.

    The D9P (disappearing 9 patch) is really quick and works up easy. It looks like it took forever to do it, but you'll enjoy it.

    Look in the search feature here for D9P and you'll see many examples and tutorial for it.

    Congrats to you

    The last baby quilt I did was a DP9 - it turned out pretty cute if I don't say so myself! :)

    I also did it as a Quilt As You Go.. so it went super fast!

    moreland posted these today. Easy, but nice looking. The first one only takes two fabrics. The others are easy, too. I like the half Log Cabin. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-124239-1.htm

    There are lots of cute panels for babies, and those work up really quickly with some borders added. Also you might consider using some fabrics with texture - corduroy, flannel, Minkee, etc.

    Here's a link to a baby D9P that Normabeth posted on Thursday. I really like this D9p using the Care Bear fabric.

    Here's another pretty one.

    Thanks for all of your help. I think that I will be trying the D9P as soon as I can figure out the yardage and size to make it. Since I am still a newbie, I still don't know how to figure those out. Again, thanks for the ideas.

    Warm wishes is another easy one to do, and on Quilterscache.com, check out Autum tints 2 - that is nice as well.

    This one is very easy and is brightened up with selection of fabric.
