    A friend is having a baby girl in Aug. and naming her Lily. I'm making a quilt but would love to make her a quilt block with a lily on it to frame and hang n the baby's room. Anyone have any ideas where i can find a pattern?

    Do a google search for a free Lily quilt block pattern. Shouldn't be hard to find and you can pick the one you like.

    What a great idea! I have a granddaughter named Lily. I know there are paper piecing patterns that are called lilies...don't know if that is what you might be looking for.

    you can always look up lily coloring book pages on google images and use one of them for applique (either fusible or hand applique)

    This Lily loves the Carolina Lily Block. I use to be the only one in town and now I have lots of little bitty Lily's running around. The name has become popular again.

    Here's an Amish Wallhanging version

    Jinny Beyer has a free Lily that she did for her garden quilt. Check out her blocks.

    A quilting book in your public library might have one, too.

    You and i are doing the same thing. My daughter in law is expecting her first baby in july and they are naming the baby lily.

    as soon as they told us the name back in March i knew i wanted to make a wall hanging first and then a quiltl later on. I am looking for a free pattern to follow. And i know time is getting shorter . iI have to find one soon. Did you get yours done yet?

    I haven't, but I think I am going to applique the name on a wallhanging. I'll hang it on a dowel suspended on a ribbon. I may glue silk lilies to the point where the ribbon joins the dowel.

    That sounds very nice.
    but i am going to stick to the one i have in mind. I have one from McCall's that i got free off the internet. I Just would like to make it bigger. they give measurements of 21/2 " squares. I guess i can adjust my measurments to make it bigger.
    Now I have to find the time to get started. Too many social things going on right now.
