    Good morning everyone! I'm going to try to make a baby quilt for my sister who is going to have a little girl in November. Here are the fun fabrics that I have. Any suggestions on what kind of pattern I should do? I think I may end up back at the fabric store to get either another white or pink fabric so that I can be sure to separate the busier patterns.
    Thanks!!

    I would do a disappearing 9-patch using all the fabrics. What a great variety of colors and patterns. You could also make a strip tube quilt and that would really showcase your fabrics, too.

    You could use the fabric pictured in the lower left as a center panel and use the others as borders.

    Thanks :-)

    I'm scared of the disappearing 9 patch. I tried to do it one but chickened out lol.

    at first I thought that I was going to use the lower left fabric for the back but and just do blocks but then I got worried that when it came time to quilt, my blocks wouldn't line up with the blocks printed on that fabric and then it would look bad.

    Have you seen that Anita Grossman Solomon pattern that uses 3 one yard pieces of fabric to make 3 quilts of an elongated 9 patch? It is available online with the cutting instructions, clear pictures showing how to align for cutting and the sewing is very easy, just 6 seams!!! I've done a couple for baby quilts this year and they go together really fast!! Plus you can improvise the quilting when you sandwich it & it looks so cute! Check it out. I think it was called 3 yards, 3 baby quilts and it might be at the Quiltmaker magazine website. I mean it is really adorable & very fast & easy!

    D9P would be great. I'd get a very strong pink to fuchsia solid or blender for the center block. That's the one the ends up as the small squares. You won't need much.
