    Smile Pattern for quickly made sampler quilt for a baby gift!

    Since the baby is already here (supposed to arrive in June but she weighed in at 8.6!!) I have already missed the arrival time!! I would like to make a sampler quilt for a baby since I get really bored making the same block a dozen or so times!! I have several collections of fat quarters I am thinking of breaking out and finally making better use of than beautifying my fabric storage! Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Look on http://www.quilterscache.com/QuiltBlocksGalore.html Find the size you want and then the ones that have just one pin are the easiest.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I have really used panels with borders or patterns with lots of directions. I don't think I can make blocks out of my head. I really need the instructions for using the correct amount of fabric and cutting correctly and constructing the blocks correctly. I wondered if any of you have made or know of a pattern that could work for baby girls? Thanks!

    Panels are a good idea. Get out your quilt books and pick out blocks that are the same size. Pick out blocks that could be made the same by adding strips around them. I do okay with about 20 or 25, after that number I have to keep telling myself I just need to get moving.

    Actually I just went on Etsy and found a darling panel in the color little mommy wants for baby girl and some coordinating half-yards so I ordered it. Don't know how I will make the border but can use the matching halfyard and make some different blocks since the center is already done. Glad I found it. Thanks for all the help from you wonderful quilters.

    I actually have made an over-size king quilt with nothing but HST arranged in all different block designs. The variety you can achieve is amazing and relatively quick and simple!
