    Plans have changed - Please show me your Charlie Brown Quilts

    Well, I thought my co-worker's new baby theme was going to be Winnie the Pooh but I was wrong. They are going with a Charlie Brown theme. Has anyone made a Charlie Brown quilt that I can see. I've search the web under images but nothing has really stood out to me yet. I'm thinking I would like to incorporate a yellow zigzag like the stripe on Charlie's shirt. Maybe as the border...not sure yet. I need inspiration.

    have you tried pintrest or googling it. Never heard of a Charlie Brown room. interesting. good luck.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    just went to google,
    they showed a lot of quilts yellow and black with the zig zag in black like the CB shirt. some of them were more themed, Christmas or Halloween. maybe you can download a CB pic and print it out on fabric to put in the ctr of a star block, something like that maybe?? Good luck with this one. Please, show us what you end up doing. you could draw a big maybe 2 feet tall Charlie Brown and applique him to the top of the quilt, or do all the characters, appliqued on.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I would check out on Google and see if you find any inspiration there:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=char...iw=995&bih=614

    There are some fabrics with Charlie brown for sale on eBay:

    There is one panel with Charlie Brown:

    I made a Peanuts quilt using the wonky blocks pattern in bright colors with a scrappy binding, no border. It was easy and went together really fast. There's still Peanuts fabric out there but I don't know if there's any with just Charlie Brown. Another idea if you do machine embroidery would be to embroider the center of whatever blocks you make, I know there are Peanuts embroidery designs out there and there's an old machine with Peanuts designs built into it.

    Don't forget to look for CB fabric at JoAnn's I have found it several times. One was on a nice deep red and had the characters working on raking leaves, kicking the football and of course Snoopy to his snoopy best to entertain. Often what I find is seasonal oriented and I find it in the discount area. Worth a look if you have a JoAnn's close by.

    My neighbor found 2 pleated drapery panels in a '70s VERY LARGE Charlie Brown print (browns, golds, oranges)...and asked me to make two twin quilts from the panels.......open weave drapery fabric so no cutting......I found some luscious batiks and added 4 borders in browns and oranges.......and then did an edge to edge quilting design ( backing was bright orange batik) that was a quarter moon, smiling, and loops and starts....(a cowboy theme on the panels)...and she was very pleased with how it turned out............since quilting was dense.......it washed and dried beautifully......just goes to show you that you can re-use many things if you cannot find new fabric yardage...

    I just finished a Chevron Toddler quilt(40x48in.) using a free pattern from LiMa Sews. Google: Chevron Toddler quilt free (The same quilt shows up with Craftsy.) You will need to scroll down to LiMa Sews. Ironically i had imagined how this pattern could be used for a CB quilt posing as his shirt. Good Luck!

    The fabric line is from Quilting Treasures, if you look on their web site they have several Charlie Brown themed projects that you can download for free. (just scroll down the page) For that matter most of the fabric manufacturers have free patterns.

    Here is my Snoopy quilt. I have made two of them. They are "sew and flip" blocks and then "quilt as you go." The fabric came from a scrub that I found at a garage sale. One scrub yielded enough fabric fussy cut for the two quilts. Sew and flip works good for me when the pattern in the fabric is so scattered.

    My brother used to draw Snoopy as a kid, so it was appropriate as a gift for his first grandchild. Enjoy making your Charlie Brown quilt!

    I just bought a book for Peanuts characters (appliqued) on Amazon. Not sure if that's the direction you want to go.
