    I make donated baby quilts and I'm getting tired of doing the same ole square quilts... Anyone know of any baby quilt patterns that I can make in hours instead of days?? I'd prefer ones that are finished in 2-4 hrs, that are Super easy patterns that can use fabric from the stash pile..

    Any suggestions (and or links) would be most appreciated...

    Kaye Wood has the 6 hour quilt. If you look at the picture, you will be able to figure it out the pattern.

    Sue - I just looked at that quilt and it would be perfect as a "quilt as you go" quilt!

    This one uses charm packs but could just as easily be made with scraps.

    And if you have large pieces of fabric this one is fast and easy.

    I like to make a small Trip Around the World in 5" flannel squares and use fleece for the backing--no batting. Super quick and cuddly!

    Another one I like to make is Bille Lauder's, "There's a Dog on my Quilt." There used to be directions on HGTV's web-site. The pattern is also available for purchase from http://www.easymade.com

    D9P, 4 into 9 and 4 patch posies are also simple & quick. 4 patch alternated with fussy cut squares and the good old fashioned single Irish Chain are all easily done in a weekend.

    Here's a super fast baby quilt pattern. You get three at once and you can make all three tops in just a matter of a couple of hours.

    I love the idea of using fleece backing on a baby quilt. (I'm a newbie, BTW). Could you tell us what you do for the binding.....and give any other instructions you might care to share with us. This sounds like such a great idea. I have a great-grandbaby boy due in January and would surely like to try this out.
    Thanks in advance!

    I do lots of charity quilts and for kids I like to do the "quick strippie", but I do it as a "stitch and flip" so the quilting is already done for you. Add a machine binding and you are done in no time. For adults I like to do a strip quilt like the one in the pic below. It quilts up quickly with just a SID.

    I usually just bring the fleece to the front and topstitch it down but you could do a regular cotton binding or even a fancy satin blanket binding if you wanted. I just bring the fleece to the front because it's quick & easy.

    Thank you so much! Think I'll just bring the fleece to the front because it sounds so much easier! Thanks for your reply!

    picture tutorial ! :

    "I devised a rotary-cut quilt for an appearance on Simply Quilts (episode #1129). Each fabric in Super-Sized Nine Patch is cut with just 2 cuts with a rotary cutter. Using 3 fabrics and swapping the cut pieces yields 3 baby quilts in no time at all.
    I can see these quilts used for charity quilts, last minute baby showers or background for applique." Anita Grossman

    i can no longer find the short video Anita made for simply quilts..
    :-(

    Good for you!

    that super size 9 patch..with 3 fabrics on top of each other, you will be cutting out 3 tops at once!

    Anita Grossman is my favorite ! i learned so much about rotary cutting quick techniques!

    great for a beginner,or for charity baby quilt!

    the pdf version is above, but i am a visual person, i learn quicker, watching the lesson!

    I have used the Downy quilts for kids pattern several times. They look adorable and go together very quickly.
