I need a pattern or an idea on what to do with this quilt.'ll be doing it with a friend tomorrow! I These are the five fabrics. It is for my son for Christmas _ yes I know late start..... I'd like the penguins to be the focus fabric and large enough blocks of the penguins to see what they are. Any thoughts?
The black has grey music notes on it, you just can't see them in the photo.
Check out Champaigne Wishes Quilt, google it. I have been working on some instructions from just the picture. It looks like it would be quick with large enough places for the penquins and the music.
Warm Wishes is always a great one for focus fabrics and a quick and easy quilt!
For donated quilts for the kids, check out the photos at
Warm Wishes gets my vote too...Here is the pattern

GMTA. Warm wishes was my first thought also.
Warm wishes is a great choice.
Another Quiltmake mag quilt I think might work for you is this Old Glory design from an issue this summer.
Here's the links to magazine, template, and blog locations that give lots of ideas. Looks to me a little imagination would come up with all kinds of possibilities no matter how many fabrics you have.
Should be easy to come up with a simple penguin, don't you think?
Or just to toss another idea out. Google Highlights quilt. Works up fast with large blocks.
Here is a link to a picture of one. Jill (WQFC knows where to find the free pattern)

If you had enough of the penguin fabric you could make a kalidiascope quilt. Here is one my daughter in law made.
I don't mind coming to work. But that 8 hr. wait to go home is a drag.
Jumping back in.
What you didn't tell us was how old your son is, how much fabric you have and how large you want the quilt.
One of the quickest ways I know to make a quilt is strips and squares. The variations are endless.
Here's a sample of a couple of strip quilts. You can make the strips all the same size, or not. Add a smaller contrasting strip between the strips.
You can cut your fabric into equal width strips and make a pattern similar to the 1600" jelly roll quilt or a variation.
How about strips and squares? Those are quick and easy.
You can keep them symmetrical. Or, you can offset the squares.
You can make a larger block of the strips and squares and rotate them.
Happened to think of the quilts I made for my DGGSs this Spring. It was a super simple pattern and went together very quickly. It actually consists of one large block, with my variations because of fabrics involved.
Oh Paus those are great looking patterns you offered Ilovemy4kids should like all these ideas. Warm Wishes was my first thought. You don't want to slice those penguins up too much. Pat
QW, that Champagne Wishes quilt is very pretty. Good luck with it.
Wow! Lots of responses and even a phone call and fax! You gals are wonderful! Ronnie is 16 and I have 6 yds of penguins and 1 1/2 yds of each of the other 4 I have narrowed it down to 3 choices...the
and this one that I found online....but I'd use 4 colors in the striped triangles
the BQ pattern is a good one. 12 inch focus squares with strips sewn on two sides. then the blks are turned in each row. from mapleislands quilts.
boy, i just saw the one above done with triangles. love it!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: native Texan,
Paus, do you have a pattern for that third one? Just found out my son doesn't like triangles!
It's my own design. I can make the pattern any way you want it.
