    I have a friend expecting first baby girl in early December. My husband and I want to make them a baby quilt (will also add a couple burp cloths?!?)! The nursery colors are chocolate and pink (not pale pink-just pink!). I have been trying to decide on a patten for about 2 months and am still undecided. It does not have to be super simple as I am up to a challenge although I am not ready for paper piecing, applique or anything too very complicated! Does anyone have any suggestions? I want it to look more pretty, than cute!!?!

    I did one with circles in pink, brown and green. It was very easy! Here's the link:

    Other options, log cabin would be pretty, pinwheels, D9P, etc. You have many choices!

    Here are some pics to inspire you!

    Pinwheels would be fast and aren't hard either. You could use one brown print for the background and several prints for the pinwheels.

    Here's one I did.
