I want to make a baby blanket for my Dirty Delete. Can you ladies post some pics on here of your favorite quilt patterns?? I’ll end up going to buy the pattern at JoAnns and choosing my own fabric, but I really want to make it myself and I’m not coming up with any cute quilt patterns so far…

If you like something modern, I’ve got a great one for you! Mrs Mascara just posted a 2-part tutorial for a LOVELY circle quilt that you could easily scale up or down to be either baby blanket or bed/crib quilt:

Have you ever done a crazy quilt? My mom made one a few years ago using a ton of personal peices. It was really really cool! She used peices from her favorite clothes and different old peices of embroidery, some old baby items, etc.. Then she used ribon, embroidery, old lace, buttons, etc to border the different patches.

@tulip: Oh that quilt is too cute! I think I could do that. And it can be modified for a girl and a boy!
@rnc620: I thought about doing that, but I don’t think I have the visual skills to pull it off. It would look all lopsided and funny. But maybe if I get better at quilting I could do that with old baby clothes!

Here was the one I used to make the owl quilt: http://www.lavender-rabbit.com/whooters.html
Do you want animals on it or do you want a generic pattern quilt?

I’m up for anything really. Just wanted to make a keepsake quilt, and when I tried to google some patterns, I didn’t see any that looked cute. That owl quilt is so darn cute! My daughter’s room will be a jungle theme though, so if I did animals, I’d look for something more in the hippo/giraffe/tiger range.

There are some free quilt patterns on Amy Butler’s site that you can download:

This is just my personal opionion — but if you’re going to put the time and effort into making a quilt for your Dirty Delete to last a lifetime I’d buy fabric a little better quality than JoAnn’s. Yes it’s pricer – but the fabric at a quilt shop is SO MUCH nicer… plus it’ll be a lot easier to buy from a collection so the fabrics will coordinate well.
Hopefully my mom will make one for me! I still need to finish my master bedroom quilt I started a LONG time ago and make my wedding guest book quilt! ha. I’d never finish a baby quilt!

This is one I did for my FI’s dad’s dog, but it is crib sized. It is a very easy pattern and you can make it super cute. It was in a book of quilts called “Quilts Kids Will Love”
