    Looking for a pattern using 4 fabrics

    I am stuck, I have four pieces of fabric that I want to use to make a quilt for a sweet baby girl and I am only finding quilts using three fabrics, I really want to use all of these. Any ideas?

    You could use the two prints and one of the solids in one of those 3 fabric quilts. Then use the remaining solid for sashing or borders.

    I just did a query for 4 fabric pattern and came up with this one: http://www.inspiringcreationsblog.co...ttern-and.html

    Warm Wishes uses 4 fabrics, and so does the Disappearing 4 Patch.

    Are you able to add one more fabric? Also not sure how much you have of each print....
    This one is sort of like the Warm Wishes pattern but with a bit more interest.

    Card Trick uses 4 fabrics plus a background.

    You could do a 4-piece Rail Fence.

    I second the Warm Wishes suggestion. These fabrics would work great for a baby.

    Here is a baby quilt I made recently with 4 fabrics, which worked well as I didn't want to cut the animal fabric into small pieces. The pattern (French Weave by Patti Carey) called for more than four fabrics, but was easy enough to adapt, as there are only 2 row configurations.

    Warm Wishes is my suggestion with the floral as the focus and the purple in the center of the 3 part block.

    I agree with sewbizgirl: I use Warm Wishes a lot for a great looking quilt. Easy too.

    Thank you so much quilting friends! All of the quilts are pretty cool! I think I will go with the Warm Wishes, I've never seen or done that one before and I think it will be perfect for this sweet little baby! You all are so appreciated!

    That fabric will look great in the Warm Wishes pattern!!! The quilt will go together quickly too.

    use the solid for the back
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    If you do a search here on QB for Warm Wishes you will get a lot of quilts to look at. It is fun to see the variations based on color placement etc. I'm glad you chose WW, I think it is easy and so cute. The other patterns shared were great too though!

    I absolutely love your fabric and colors. I don't know the name of this but you could do a center square (in blue/pink) one of the colors in the flowered print or black is stunning, and use one of the four colors for each leg around the square. It makes a very pretty quilt.

    Beautiful fabrics and I agree with the QB members to use Warm Wishes pattern. I think your quilt would be beautiful.
