    You can get a themed fabric (farm, trucks, baby animals etc.) and put it in the middle then borders around the outside.

    Stripes are fast. Find a theme fabric, make 6 inch stripes. Pick 2 more colors, and make 4 inch stripes for each side. If there is a 3rd color, make the outside border with it.

    jelly roll your favorite juvinile prints

    or use the tube pinwheel method on Missouri Star Quilt Company - I've made several baby quilts doing this and it takes no time at all!

    I just finished a "fast" one last night. I brought a panel of a nursery theme, quilted it and added binding. Looks great. Got the panel at Joanne's.
    Good luck!

    Check out "Super-Sized Nine Patch" by Anita Grossman Solomon. I got it from Quiltmaker mag. May/June 2006. You may be able to get it on their website. But I think I saw it in either last month or the month before reprinted.

    check out Kay Wood's 6 hour quilt. Her web site can be found at kaywood.com. This quilt is the top, batting & backing all put together at the same time.

    You can always buy the pre-quilted panels too - Just add binding!!

    I am making a pp sailboat baby quilt for my dd step mother in law. I sent her a picture....pp sailboats..stripe sales..green boats..blue background with stars.. pale yellow shashing...green dot inner border.. stripe outer border.
    She thinks the stripe outer border makes the quilt to busy! She wants a solid blue border.. No light blue fabric that matches. I got royal blue like one of the stripes in the sails. I think it is to dark. She lives out of state. I am going to send her a piece of all the fabrics so she can see what they look like in person.
    My daughter said she was high strung and out there! If I ever learn how to post pics I will post it. This is my first try at pp.

    The last post (tutroial) for "Slanted Stars" looks as easy as it gets. Instead of white you could use color. Would be a cute baby quilt, I think.

    Love this quilt! You said that for the 4 patch you cut 6.5 inch squares and the same size for the squares. Do you then quarter the squares for the 4 patch?

    i am bad..not the right measurements for the 4-patch
    if finishes at 6.5 to match the squares.

    the 4 patch squares or strips were cut t are 3.5

    make strips, that is the easy way..

    here is a pattern to follow

    I love the Quilt as you Sew baby blanket. When you get done sewing the strips to the batting and backing the quilt is done. All you need to do is bind it.
