I promised 2 weeks ago when they graduated that I would stop by to see him when he came and i would like to give them a quilt for their new little one. Well, I got a message last night that he had arrived, so...Other than using a panel, what would be the quickest pattern to use for a baby quilt?

think i have just the pattern the doctor ordered....it a "6 hour quilt" by kaye wood. there is no quilting required. it is layered and stitched, folded forward hiding seams, etc. you use a high loft batting and the result is amazing. when you have gotten to the size you want, simply bind it and there it is. if you have trouble finding this pattern, let me know. this looks like a high dollar comforter but will last for a lifetime. you will love it. i am making one now for a friend's expected grandson in houston. i use flannel and denim for boys. you can pm me if you are interested.
Thanks for your input.

Okie quiter - I will look that one up. Sounds really interesting. I just love this board...I learn so much!

As for this quilt, I am now putting the 1st border on. Sew, the top is just about pieced....getting it quilted, well that will have to wait for another day.

Okie Quilter.. did you order Kay Wood's pattern off of her website? Or is there a download for it someplace? It sounds like a good one to have on hand for those 'gotta have a gift' emergencies!

I find nine patches to be quick and easy. You can find some cute baby prints, cut them up and add colorful sashing or cut solid squares with the prints and sew them up.

I just made my grandson a fleece quilt with a brushed cotton backing. 3yards of fleece, and 6 yards of flannel will do it. You can do all sorts of stitching to bond the 2 layers together. Look at my thread, a quilt I made for my college bound grandson. You don't have to get that fancy. You could even leave the edges "raggy". The fleece won't fray but the flannel will.

How about an easy pinwheel quilt? Took me less than 3 hours to put this together and then another hour quilting. It's the Downy Comfort quilt pattern. and if you use the easy pinwheel method it's so easy!

My pattern was a simple four patch with blocks...but for the one from my stash, I chose to do pinwheels instead of the 4 patch block

When I went to the Downy Comfort Quilt Project online, it shows a heart quilt. Are there other patterns?

My pattern was a simple four patch block alternating with simple fabric block. I chose to make the pinwheels instead of the four patch. Wanted to try out the new technique and see if it was really simple -- and it was!
