    I need a simple quick pattern to make 2 baby quilts, for twins. I am in the middle of starting a business, so I'm swamped making Bow Tuck totes. I need it to be something I can do twice, just changing the colors for a boy and a girl.

    Any ideas?

    Trip around the world in blue or pink would be pretty. :)

    diagonals with alternating colors blue, pink, green work good.

    I love the looks of Patience Corner. Do you have a picture?

    I'm doing one now that is just 6" Winnie the Pooh print blocks alternating with 9 patch blocks. I used just 2 colors for the 9 patch and with strip quilting it is going fast. Just 15 9patch blocks and 15 print squares makes a 30x36. With 1 3inch border it will be 36x42. Really fast and easy.

    A simple 9Patch is always cute for kids. I think everyone forgets how simple and cute this pattern is. You can make 12 or 16 block quilts in no time with two colors and use a cute baby fabric for the back.
    Don't forget to show and tell!
    peace

    The recipients Mom has added a request. She wants the babies to be able to use them as they grow up too. What 'theme' should we use that will grow with them?

    Kids themes change almost as quickly as we change their clothes sizes LOL. Maybe stick with color schemes, and make the quilts toddler bed sized?

    How about an I-spy? I made this one to look like hot air



    ETA---I was planning on a 2nd one that would look like balloons in the air, strings would lead down to the hand of a clown

    I agree with "I Spy". There are lots of ways to make them. The hot air balloons is a good idea or just make squares with sashing, one for the boy, one for the girl.

    I would check out the lawn chair quilts on Moda Bake Shoppe- they are adorable.
