    Lightbulb Hello from Portland Oregon.

    I have finally, after 20 years of working insane retail hours in management, gone back to a part time position. Now I am sifting through my stash and came upon a stack of primitive Christmas fabrics, cut into 5 inch blocks. i will be a grandma for the first time and would like to make our new baby girl a quilt to cuddle under with grandma. This will be "Baby Stroble's" first Christmas. HELP, what can I do with them? A pattern out of the ordinary.

    Check out the tutorials at the Missouri Star Quilt Company. Jenny has done several using charm squares.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Disappearing 9 patch or disappearing 4 patch would both work. As mentioned the videos from Missouri star quilt co. is a good place to look for inspiration.

    Waving hello from Washington! DO look at Moda Bake Shop or Missouri Quilt Co. Both are great for ideas.

    Welcome from the Columbia river gorge! Nine patch looks great in baby quilts. Make sure you save time to snuggle the baby. Its hard to ramp down after years of dashing about.
