    Smile Three Color Baby Quilt Patterns

    Hi,

    I have been a member for awhile and so far, have just been reading this wonderful forum every day!
    I need some help on making a baby quilt. The colors needed are red and white with a hint of black.
    Does anyone have some good ideas as to what pattern to use? Do not know if baby will be girl or
    boy. I do have some fabric that has sea life on it in primary colors which would be cute to incorporate
    with the red, white and black. Any suggestions would be so appreciated. I have learned so much from
    this forum and am totally addicted! Thank you!

    Yes. how about a disappearing nine patch. Use red in the four corners, white in the cross blocks and black in the center. The sea life fabric would make it four?
    One step at a time, always forward.

    How about using the sea fabric as the big squares of the Warm Wishes pattern with the other colours as the striped squares.

    Tartan has a great suggestion. I just finished a baby quilt using Warm Wishes pattern and it turned out really well.

    I agree with Tartan and patsynel, Warm Wishes would be great. Just finished a baby quilt using that pattern with sea fabric as the focus squares, turned out really nice. I did water meander, at Tartan's suggestion, for the quilting on the rail fence blocks--looks fantastic.

    I use the Disappearing 9Patch in a 3 color way alot and this was also my first thought when I read your questions about a 3 color quilt with a hint of black.

    This is a pattern I make for quick gifts. 3 1yard pieces yields 3 quilt tops

    Thank you ALL for your help and suggestions! Now, I just have to decide which pattern to go with, since I love
    them all that were suggested! I am thinkin I just might have to make more than one! Baby's can never have
    enough quilts right?
