HELP! I need to whip out a baby blanket for a girl at work this weekend. Not a big deal - but I am having a really hard time with a good quick pattern. Any suggestions???
I think I am really stuck on this boy thing - I can pick girl fabric no problem - pink/flowers/pretty . . boys are all trucks and balls. . .any ideas??
Primary colors, red, blue, yellow, green make a great bright boys quilt. The 4 patch like the Quilt for Kids pattern is quick, easy, and looks great!
I have done a modified Rail fence up really quickly using the colors that erstan947 mentioned.
Three strips across (2 1/2" each)cut to 6 1/2" add one across the top of them (2 1/2" x 6 1/2") makes a 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" block. Alternate with a 6 1/2" by 8 1/2" square to make rows to the width you want.
Switch up the placement in each row, adding rows to reach the length you want.
Border with a 3 or 4" strip of a coordinate material and bind!
This little guy is on one I made for him.
Hi mom said he hates the camera...not the quilt
I sure hope so :-)
Get a panel and frame it out with borders ?
Mickey Mouse- primary colors - Winnie the Pooh - what is the nursey being set up with ?
Dinosaurs? Just color blocks, using solids, stripes, tonals, etc?
Frogs, turtles, dogs, jungle animals would all be nice. D9P is very quick.
Check out the pre-quilted panels.
Easy to just add a ruffle or contrasting binding all around
Boys, that's my specialty! Three sons. I'd suggest anything with animals, bugs, fish, vehicles, dinosaurs or cartoon characters. If you want to stay away from a specific theme, use solids in primary colors and toss in a little brown. Boys love brown.
Couple years ago I whipped out several baby quilts using 2 1/2 strips in a log cabin pattern. Cute, easy, fast.
I TOTALLY cheated and got a panel from Joanns. . .pictures to follow - it won't take long now.
Thanks for all the advise!!
