    I have a cousin in the hospital with phnomia and I was thinking about makeing her a quilt. I don't know what pattern to use. She is just a year old and is on a vent and very sick. Any ideas?

    Sorry to hear about your cousin. I (like many on this board) have been making quilts for kids and Downy's website has the patterns on there. They are easy, small for a child and can be as bright and colorful as you want. I'd recommend you use soft fabric so it's cuddly. Hope this helps.

    I'm sorry to here about your cousin. My niece had pneumonia when she was about 7 months old and luckily came out okay. I don't know the name of a pattern but I think a quick quilt would be to take a 2 or three different color fabrics cut into several squares and sew them together and add some borders. I hope she does better and is out of the hospital soon.

    Hoping for a speedy recovery {{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}
    What about just a basic 9 patch or a disappearing nine patch. Do you have a lot of different fabrics maybe an I Spy quilt ?

    The quickest quilt I've ever made was a baby quilt using the "Warm Wishes" pattern. Search for it online, the pattern is simple. Also, a disappearing 9 patch is easy and quick too.

    I hope your little cousin gets better real soon.

    something very quick, that can be washed a ton as in the hospital she will need it washed daily.. something cuddly.. I saw the cuttest thing at Target the other day super soft baby blanket fabric that had a bear or rabbit etc head and was sewn under that head (like a ghost might be made?) and the rest of the blankie hung down. so it could be cuddled.. I thought shoot if I had a little one I would give them that.. something to hug, chew on (lol) .. a friend anda blanket
