    Hey quilt buddies. I need some suggestions for a quilt using a gazillion 2 1/2" squares. I had a "Make it, Take it" workshop at our annual ASG luncheon. Only 17 came when we usually have 35. I was teaching how to make the star ornament on styrofoam balls. I plan to make a quilt to raffle off at our annual luncheon next year with the leftover squares. Please, a simple pattern. The fabrics are all Christmas patterns or red and white, green etc. I want to make a Christmas quilt if possible. Thanks in advance.

    Have you ever used Pellon grid? You iron on your pieces to the grid and then sew on the lines, gives the quilt a heavier feel. I made a cal king one and had decided a twin size would be big enough next time due to
    The weight it adds. But it was fun to make. I think they have a tut for it at crookednickle.com

    I've been looking for ideas for my Christmas prints and found this one. I was thinking of 2-1/2" squares for the 16 patches

    Why not "a trip around the world" pattern? I made one of squares like you mentioned. It is really pretty.

    My suggestion is a 9 patch set on point --- I like to use the same solid color in the center of each 9 patch and then use it again for the setting triangles and to use white for the setting squares. Using the same fabric in the center of the 9 patch and repeating it for the setting triangles gives the quilt a unified look.....not so random...... I made one in this manner using a bunch of 30's repo fabrics that were cut 2 inches square -- it looked fabulous.

    I love the idea of a nine patch on point. It would go together fast and be so pretty.
