    If you had one more fabric, you could make a Yellow Brick Road. How about a Trip Around the World? Or Take Five?

    I was just going thru some papers the other day & ran across a"Super-Sized Nine Patch" I don't know where I got it, must be off the 'net. Across the bottom of the page it reads,"Quiltmaker-May/June '06* Copyright @2006 Primedia Inc. All rights reserved" I hope this helps you.

    do you know where I can find a free pattern for Yellow Brick Road? If I get one more fabric, do you think I should get another solid or another print? my local Joann store did not have much of a selections as far as baby prints go.

    thank you for your suggestions!

    I was going to suggest a simple block pattern. A 9 patch would be great!

    I just looked up the super nine patch and it would be ideal. She could use the prints as the focus fabric in each block then finish out with the solids. I just googled "super size nine patch"

    How about something like this? That way you don't have to cut up those cute printed fabrics too tiny.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    GrannieAnnie - with the super size nine patch - say I make 3 blocks 1 each with the 3 different prints, then should I mix up the solids I use around the print? I can follow a pattern but coming up with a design is a weakness of mine :-(

    That would be MY pick. Such a pretty pattern and BEAUTIFUL fabrics. I am sure anything would be gorgeous with those fabrics. Be sure to post a picture when done.

    I just done a few with 4-patch with an alternating solid. They were easy and turned so cute.

    I make quilts for Project Linus & that's a pattern I've used for them. I think it's on the Quiltmaker web sit (or I have the .pdf if anyone wants it). I love it!

    thank you for all the replies, I really appreciate all the suggestions!

    Do any of you make a drawing of your quilt before cutting and if so what do you use to do that?

    I like to use the Yellow Brick Road patten for a QUICK baby quilt. I also like to throw in some texture blocks, such as Chenille, or crinkle block, or even have thrown in a few flannel block..... it give the quilt more texture and babies like feeling things...

    Go to the site FaveQuilts they have lots of free patterns and even a section for baby quilts. I love this site, I even have my daughter who swore she would never quilt now quilting because she can get free patterns and instructions from this site.

    DNP for baby quilt

    I learned on one of the tutorials in this board that a disappearing nine patch is really gorgeous (and easy!) when you use the big prints in the 4 outer corners and the more solid-looking fabrics in the other spaces, then after sewng the 9 little 5" blocks together to form the 9-patch, cut in half vertically and again in half horizontally. This will keep the more or less solid colored fabrics as smaller 2.5" blocks and keep the larger print as full 5" blocks. Twist and turn the blocks as you can so no seams match and sew together to form whatever pleases your eye. I think this would be gorgeous for your baby quilt! (reminds me of the Yellow Brick Road...but ahhh...so much simpler to put together). Good luck and have fun with this little baby quilt. Your fabrics are really pretty!
    Eliminate "can't" from your vocabulary and see what happens.

    Theres free patterns everywhere. Check out several websites, I'm sure you'll come across something you like.
    For a girls quilt you might want to include more pink fabrics. check out Ericas.com- Wild Thyme/P&B Textiles.

    I like 4 patch and snowball blocks used together for baby quilts. You can also do pinwheels either flat or dementional for texture. No matter what you choose I am sure the recipient will enjoy and appreciate.
