    Need a Boys Quilt pattern - something VERY unusual...but cute

    I will be working on my next grandsons quilt soon and I am finding it a little challenging to come up with something fun and different. I don't want a patchwork (just blocks) or something that is landscape or a persons portrait - can't think of the name of these...

    So please post some pictures or links of something I might want. Thanks!

    How old is he? I absolutely LOVE the different stars I've seen posted. I think my favorite was called Lonestar? And the Mariner compass? So beautiful.

    I am in the process of trying to design a quilt for my youngest DGS. I am thinking about a games theme, maybe chutes and ladders, with his name across the top or bottom.

    Maybe a trip to the library would help. I know my library has a lot of quilt books, several of which are just kids' quilts.

    This will be for a newborn, but my daughter thinks she might one for a twin bed. This is her 4th and will be her second boy...so I think she is going past the baby stage and thinking more future. The one I made the other gs was an applique with bear and toys.

    Here is one I did a few years ago. I just found a good story book to create the applique, then quilted with tool shapes.

    I just bought a cool alien space pattern -- don't know how appropriate for a newborn, but my 2.5 DGS loved it.

    Here is the link -- scroll down the page.

    Another snakes quilt...I made this for our grandson when he got a youth bed. It's about 58" x 68" with the suggested borders, but could be made larger.

    It was a free pattern from South Seas Imports, but may not be available on the net anymore. I have the pdf file and could email it.

    There was a very cute Dog pattern in Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting magazine last year? I think it was an extra pdf to download. The dogs ears are 3-D and very cute. The pattern was called Dog Daze and was a companion to Feline Frenzy another adorable pattern. Try their site and see if you can get it. OR if you buy their magazine look through your back issues for the maker and try her web site.

    I made a BUNCH of HST with one half of each HST the same background fabric. I used brights for the other halves. I then laid them out in a zigzag pattern and made a 3-D type snake head to put in the seams at one end. I will try to upload a picture, but I am very technologically challenged.

    I love this quilt. The quilting is so perfect for it:

    Saw this dog quilt made up at a quilt show last weekend. It is adorable...wish I could get started on it myself, but too many projects already waiting in line . It's called Gone to the Dogs by judydiditdesigns: http://www.thecrazyquilter.com/Items...tothedogs.html

    I am intrigued by I Spy quilts. I think they would be great for visual discrimination, vocabulary development and lots of fun as a game for toddlers. If you google images I Spy quilts you will find lots of variations. I am making this one. The tutorial is here: http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot...-tutorial.html

    This is one I made last year for a co-worker. Very simple, just nine-patches and sail boats. The alternating blocks are half square triangles but the pattern just asked for plain blocks. And the piano key border was just to make it bigger. It is 64" x 64"

    Boy quilt

    I'm making a MCW quilt for my 5 yo GS. I'm using denim for the circles and a fire truck print for the squares inside. It's very cute.
