Default Need help picking easy baby quilt patterns, need 3 quilts...

Good morning,

It has been a very long time since I have posted or even been to the site. I used to quilt a lot, but since I returned to school 3 1/2 years ago, I have been unable to quilt much due to time restraints. I am almost done with school (2 classes this spring and 1 more over the summer) and I am working almost full time for a oral surgeon and still have my other part time job of stocking magazines. Plus taking care of my family.

The reason for my long overdue post today is, 3 of my co-workers are about to become first time grandmothers, 1 in Mid-February and the other 2 at the end of March. I have a 1 month break from school and I would like to attempt to make 1-3 baby quilts for my co-workers, using very simple and fast working patterns. I am mostly using scraps from my stash and will buy if I absolutely have to. I expect to have to buy the backing at least. Can you suggest some very easy and fast working patterns that I could look at and possibly use for these quilts. Ultimately I would like to do a quilt for each of the co-workers, but fear I will not have enough time before school starts again, so even if I can do just one, I would be happy. Out of the 3 co-workers, the one who would get it if I just did one would be my office manager because she has gone above and beyond to help me move up in my job.

Thank you in advance and Happy New Year!

I love the Warm Wishes Pattern. Also Quilts For Kids website has some good patterns. Just google those sites and the patterns are free.

Ditto what she said. I always Google for free patterns. So many for babies. Even a simple block with sashing.

I know you said you want to use your scraps but because you have time constraints, the quickest way would be to buy a cute panel and maybe do an easy border around it. You could do hst's or friendship stars, they always work up quickly. Sounds like a fun challenge for yourself. Enjoy.

I think this is the link that quiltin-nannie was trying to give you:

http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/details.html?idx=184

Not scrappy, but designed to make three baby quilts which sounds perfect for you!

I have discovered fleece as a backing/batting -- makes the middle process of quilt making go faster and so soft and cozy

Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions. I spent a good hour looking around and decided to go with a pin wheel pattern. Since I am using fabric I have, they won't be soft colors, but bright and cheery. There are two girls and one boy expected. Thank you all.
