    Need some ideas for quilt

    I am wanting ideas for a quilt, I have 4 fabrics 1-yellow/green/white print
    1 yellow
    1 green
    1 green/white print
    My mother has been very sick and I sew while I stay with her, right now I can not think of a single pattern,I wanted to make.Maybe you-all can help. I have 2 to 3 yards of all the fabric. I want to use these fabrics for a quilt for my youngest daughter who is going to Ashville to college this fall.(Who can think with all this going on.)Thanks in advance.

    Rail fence using 3 of the fabrics in strips together. Strips could be 2 and a half inches wide the you cut that strip into 6 and a half blocks. Use the other 2 fabrics for the backing and binding. Four patch is simple and goes together easily. Don't forget to make a label for the quilt as it is going to college...... Hugs and my prayers are with you

    What kind are you thinking of? Happy Daisy would be nice in those colours but it is appliqué. If you are looking for an easy pieced pattern, MSQC Falling Charms is a nice one.

    Warm Wishes would be easy and works with either 3 or 4 fabrics. You would probably use the green/white print for one set of squares and the yellow/green/white print for the other set of squares (or one of them for all of the squares); yellow and green for the bars. Here is a link to a website with examples:

    Here is a link to the free pattern pdf for either a twin size or a long double size:

    Oh Falling Charms is great - so easy but it looks great when done. Easy and quick.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
