I recently finished my UFO baby quilt. It is on my page and is the Peanunts Gang playing Baseball. It was real easy,one focus fabric in the center and then fussy cut for the little blocks. Check it out & let me know if you want the pattern. I think it came from a free website. I just meander quilt it.
I didn't mention the quilt is for a girl. Guess that is important also. So, if you have any ideas that way. I have some Noah's ark fabric I picked up a few months ago that has many colors in it & had thought about using it but not sure what pattern I would use. The Peanuts quilt idea looks quick so maybe I will do that. I see you have a cat. I do too. (Shadow - my husband named her that because she is my shadow)She is a pest when it comes to me sewing or emailing. She is right here beside me all the time. I look forward to hearing back from you. judy
Hello Judy, I just finished a really cute baby girl quilt that went together very quickly. Sew Baby.com has some cute patters and so does Clotilde where you can actually purchase patterns and they send them to you electronically.
I bet have that same Noahs Ark fabric and have been trying to come up with a way to use it too!
I also whipped up a simple blanket recently for The Linus Project where I just used Minky on the back and baby fabric on the front. It is surprisingly cute and so soft . I might have to check out that Noah's Ark fabric again and see if I can use it that way!
try a warm wishes quilt. They go fast and you can stitch in the ditch to quilt it. I just pieced one very quickly. about a total of 1 hr. cutting and probably 6 hours of piecing. I started mine on wed and was finished by Thursday evening. Just type Warm Wishes quilt pattern in your browser and it will come up with links to the free pattern.
You might want to look at the pattern "Disappearing 9 Patch". Very simple but will showcase your Noah fabic. Just use it for the 4 corner patches so it won't get cut into. Here is the website tutorial:
I just made one yesterday - the whole top - that is. I made a modified 9-patch.
I used 2 - 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" on the outer edges and the center strip was 3 - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" pieces. I used Pooh fabric I had. I have posted 2 picture of the top on my blog. Tomorrow it gets quilting in a cross-hatch.
