    Red face Can anyone recommend a modern baby girl quilt pattern?

    My DD just gave birth on the 8th of March to a beautiful baby girl named Isabella Sophia. I'm having a terrible time finding a quilt pattern for the new babe that is both stylish and fairly modern. Can anyone help please? I'm fairly new to quilting have only made 6 so far, so nothing too too tricky!

    I did something like this for a baby girl blanket that was quick and easy and fairly modern:

    There's so many you could try. Here are a few links:

    Moda Bakeshop http://www.modabakeshop.com/p/recipes.html

    Riley Blake Designs: http://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/quilting_projects/

    Abby Lane Quilts: http://www.abbeylanequilts.com/portfolio.html

    Green Fairy Quilts: http://greenfairyquilts.com/catalog.php?category=27

    Traditional designs done in modern fabrics are also nice. A simple trip around the world, 9 patch with sashing or alternating with larger squares, etc. Lucky Stars by Atkinson Designs is a great pattern. I did a couple of baby ones, one in all pastels, the other in pinks/greens that came out great. Very easy too. The hardest part is choosing which one to use!

    Michael Miller Fairies. I have twins coming in May, and am making their quilts from this. The fabric is much prettier than what you find online. It's just goregous.

    This quilt is from the book Sweet Nursery Chic, the book is available at Amazon.com, I bought mine at quilt store. There is a really cute monkey and ice cream cone one in the book, I bought fabric to make it too. I had mine made in a day. I used minkee in the ears and on a couple of the circles for a touchy feel for baby.

    Here is a 3D pinwheel quilt with gingham and eyelet. Sharon of Chicago posted hers and I loved it so much that I did this for my niece. This is my first Free Motion Quilt on my machine. It was easy to put together. You can go to the tutorial achives to find the tutorial and pictures of 3D pinwheel quilts. Hope this helps.

    Can anyone recommend a modern baby girl quilt pattern?

    My DD gave birth to her first little one on Mar 8th and I'm having trouble finding a fairly modern quilt pattern that would be suitable for little Isabella. Nothing abstract but stylish. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I've only been quilting a short time and have made just 6 quilts, so nothing too elaborate.

    Go to the manufacture websites. You can download free patterns. Stitchin Heaven has a good list of them. (Do not have any ties to them, just like their list. It is complete.)

    Have you checked out http://www.keepsakequilting.com and http://www.connectingthreads.com ? Connecting Threads just came out with a cotton lawn quilt that is especially delicate looking and modern. Here's a link to it: http://www.connectingthreads.com/kit...cs__D5043.html

    look at moda bakeshop. Moda came out with a classy baby line with soft pink and gray that I love but they also have a more modern woodlawn line. Also a bright butterfly flower (twirl) line that my 9 year old loves and I'm doing a quilt out of. Can you tell I'm a moda fan?! lol There patterns are free and also missouri star quilting company has free patterns with tutes as well. Happy quilting

    One more to try - cluckclucksew.com - she does a lot of contemporary patterns. I just love them. She also has fun blog, one of my favorites with free tutes as well. I wasn't too into the contemporary patterns but now I am because of hers.

    The 3-D pinwheel that was mentioned is VERY easy! And adorable! I am running out to get backing for the one I made for grandbambino #4-due this week! Congrats, enjoy, and have fun!

    These are some I have done...

    No patterns. The first one was done with strips. The second one was made by cutting charm squares in halves and quarters. The last one was made with a half-hexagon ruler, sewing the half-hexes in long strips and then joining them.

    I made this quilt for a baby girl - It went pretty quick. It is made up of The flowers are Snowballs with the same color in the middle, and the other 3 corners are the same color as the small squares. 8 rows of 1 1/2" (makes 1 in square) makes the pink patches. Designed by Lisa Boyer @http://lisaboyer.blogspot.com - I copied it, it was so lovely!

    Butterfly quilt.

    This is what I made for my granddaughter that was born in February. I love it. I found it in a "Leisure Arts" Quilt book called Quilts & Totes for little folks.

    A friend made a log cabin with pastel batiks. It was fabulous. Just cut 2 1/2" strips and go to it.

    Good luck.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!
