    I need an easy pattern for a flannel quilt for my daughter. I have a turtle print and 2 solid colors. Can anyone help?

    Don't know how much fabric you have, but I would simply put two layers together, right sides out, and tie the ends all the way around. Tie them in about 2-1/2" in about 1/4" strips. You'll have to cut a 2-1/2" square out of each corner. Tie a knot in each slice and you're done in maybe 2 hours max. Good luck

    Rail Fence would be my vote - just cut strips, put print in the middle, and stitch it up.

    I'd sew flannel, not cut and tie. Kids are sometimes prone to chewing on blanket edges. Would take no more than an hour to sandwich, sew, turn and tack.

    I just looked up "warm wishes' and it's a rail fence with solid squares--------just being careful about which way the fence is turned each time.

    Snowball would be good...turtle print in the middle and the 2 colors in opposite colors.

    The middle stripe is a little bit bigger.

    Here is a Warm Wishes pattern I just did. It went together quickly. Each block is ten inches, but I think a "normal" pattern calls for 6 inch blocks.

    I think turtles would look very good as the focus fabric in this pattern.

    Disappearing 9 patch (d9p) would be perfect.

    You might try the "Disappearing 9 Patch". This is my go-to pattern when I can't think of anything else or I need a quilt quickly.

    You need 9 patches (any size) all the same.
    1. lay them out so that your focus fabric/print is at the 4 corners(those don't get cut.
    2. patches 2,4,6 & 8 will "border" the prints.
    3. use a dramatic or different color for the middle block.
    4. sew them all together.
    5. Cut down the middle (vertical) then across the middle (horizontal).
    6. You can now arrange the 4 created cut blocks in any design.

    Dina....The tube tutorial that AngieS posted above is a really quick/easy pattern and can be dramatic also depending on the contrast of your fabrics.
