    I've finished making quilts for my twin baby nephews, and now need to make one for my 6 yo niece. I've bought the fabric, but am not sure of a good design.
    I'm still fairly new, and need to get it done for Christmas, so a fairly tight schedule (for me). The fabrics down the middle I have a FQ of each, and the top and bottom I have 0.5m of each, but can get more if needed.
    Any suggestions for a quick and simple design please?
    Thanks in advance
    Sarah

    I don't know how big you want to make it but you might just want to make a nine patch.

    How about the disappearing 9 patch....I can recommend that as fast growing and very effective, love your fabrics by the way :D

    Sounds like a good idea - looks more complicated than a normal 9 patch.
    Thanks everyone! A
    nd Izy - your looks really great - had to look up instructions to work out how your done it. I like you fabric choice there!

    I was going to say the same thing. Also the "Bits and Pieces" pattern I have used a lot is fast and easy as well.

    I think just a simple Rail Fence would work too.
