    My best friend has asked me to make a quilt for her baby grandson that is expected in October. I need suggestions for a simple quilt as I haven't done anything but blocks so far (that quilt took 2 years to complete). Of course I was working then and now I've retired from "paid" working. I know some of you will come up with great suggestions. Thank you.

    I like small Bowtie or Tumbling Blocks for baby quilts. Nine Patches or Four Patches are almost always a good choice for any quilts. Just make the pieces small for baby quilts.

    "Take 5" is a simple quilt, it looks complicated, but it's super easy! I am making my second one, both have been for babies, but are big enough to last quite a while.

    A simple 4 patch block with an alternating block of a cute print would be good. There's so many cute prints out for babies and kids, and they're very colorful.

    The one I just did was a simple 6" square of focus fabric with 3" sashing and corner blocks, flannel backing folded over the front as binding. Tied with tiny 1/8" satin ribbon bows. Finished in less than 2 weeks, including two trips to Waco for fabric and then more fabric when I ran out cuz I didn't buy enough the first time, plus working 8 - 4:30 Tues - Thur, half a day on Friday and 12 hr days on the weekend.

    Kay Wood's 6-hour Quilt was my first completed quilt. http://www.kayewood.com/item/6_Hour_..._Book/406/c60.

    So easy and no hand work.

    Also - here is a tutorial for the same type - but using pieced sections.

    How about a mixed up nine patch? It is very simple to do and instead of joining the blocks together, use 4" solid colored strips for sashing in between the blocks and rows!
