    Can someone give me an idea of a quick quilt for a baby? I have Noah's Ark material I want to make the quilt out of. I have made rag quilts and they go pretty fast but thought maybe there would be another pattern that is pretty fast. What do you think of a rag quilt for a baby?? Thanks a bunch for any suggestions you may have.

    Don't like them for baby. They tend to chew on quilts. How about big blocks with sashing around them? That would highlight the fabric.

    I suggest the 10 minute block.
    My sister made this one in just a few hours.

    I agree with the 10 - minute block. So quick and easy and looks like you took alot of time. Go to Missouri Star Quilts and they have tut on there.

    The ten minute block is great using 4 five inch blocks & a six inch block for thr centre. You don't have to use 10 inch blocks. I suggest using a size having the least waste eg. fabric is 42 inches wide then I'd use 6 inch blocks.

    You could alternate plain blocks to showcase your ark characters with this tube quilting trick.

    my favorite is Warm wishes from Quiltmaker. The pattern was designed for Linus, but works for all.

    I don't like rag quilts for babies, they pose way to much of a choking hazard for babies!! (IMHO)

    Warm wishes is a quick quilt.

    In the current issue of Quiltmaker ( I think) there is a pattern that makes two tops that are nothing but a big square in a square. You end up with two tops, one each that has each fabric for the middle square and then the other fabric for the background triangles. It really shows off a cute print. Thought you might be interested. In fact since the quilt tops would be exactly the same size, you could use one on the back and make it reversible.

    Rag quilts are a choking hazard for babies and small children. The very thing that makes them so attractive also makes them dangerous.

    I have been promoting this for years and will always find a few people who say that because they have never heard of a child choking on a rag quilt it will never happen. Dumb people.

    Here is a thread I started a few years ago. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-4303-1.htm
