    I bought this material to do a baby quilt for my brother, his baby is due in Sept. What pattern or layout could I use? I have these two (2yrds each) and a solid light blue piece of flannel that I could use for the backing. Would I need other fabric or is there something I would be able to do with just these two?

    Thanks for any help, I am at a loss for a pattern.

    Cute fabric!
    I think the first piece would make a great border.
    The second piece could be solid blocks and you could make either 9 patch with a combination of the blues, brown, and cream or a strip patch (three strips wide and one strip across)with the same colors.
    Here is a pic that shows the strip patch I mentioned. a really easy pattern.

    glad you like it. This one's measurements were 8 1/2" squares so the strip patch was three 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" and one 2 1/2' x 8 1/2"
    I hope that makes sense.
    Please post pics of your finished work.

    Thank you Nana for the measurments.

    Any other idea's? Im thinking I will have to go pick up more fabric, probably browns and blues. I have brown plaid that matches the brown in the bear fabric but I do not know if it goes with the bears or if I even have enough of it.
