    Ok everyone. I just found out two of my nieces are going to have babies in the summer. One is going to have twins. I need to get busy making baby quilts. Does anyone have any patterns they would suggest. Any help would be great.

    Warm Wishes is a great one--looks good and it's fast! There's a link to a post called Warm Wishes in here somewhere... I think Shadow posted it.

    I am a great advocate of the Disappearing 9 Patch! It is so easy. If you Google it, or do a search on here, you will find lots of examples and instructions.

    Izy made a beautiful scrappy one:

    DJ made a yummy bright one:

    I vote for Warm Wishes also. You can find it on the McCall's website, under free patterns. I like that you can make any fabric the emphasis...

    I just finished this one. It's called Square Dance from Bit's n Pieces. It went together very quickly, and it was fun to do!

    I love baby quilts in bright colors. I think they need the stimulation, so I made this one of batik sample fabrics I bought by the pound on eBay. The piece at the end is coordinated fabric for the backing with bubbles that happens to be a perfect match...found at JoAnn's. The quilt pattern is called "Twist and Shout". Kind of goes together like a log cabin.
    :?: Now I'd like to bind it by just bringing the backing fabric around to the front and topstitching it. Does anyone know how much wider I should cut the backing. I have about 4 inches all the way around. Lots of batting to be trimmed off .
    PS.....it looks like the picture didn't get attached. I guess I don't know how to do it right. Sorry!

    I made this pattern for my first grand nephew. When I made it, we weren't sure of the sex so I used pale green, yellow, and lavendar.
    Everyone loved it, and I even was asked to make one for a friend's grandchild to be.

    Littlehud, I just think of a theme, search the free colouring pages on line for inspiration, and adapt them for applique, you get some lovely unique baby quilts that way, I am just doing one at the moment that is based on Noah's ark :D You can do as much or as little 'patchwork, and alternate with a little applique, the choice is yours :D

    Check out "Sweet and Simple Baby Quilts" by Mary Hickey. Her quilts are precious, and this particular book has pics of her and her granddaughter, who she made them for!

    Congratulations!
