If I Only Had Grandkids!

Since I don't have any grandkids, the girls at work benefit from my need to make baby quilts. Several ladies from my Friday Bee did the Shop Hop on a bus this past Saturday. Had a blast, found more batiks and my special project of a baby quilt for Marna. Now, she is not due until July, but you never know. Her only request is that I use Lime Green, Bright Lemony Yellow and Bright Orange! Since she doesn't know if it's going to be a boy or girl, didn't really want pinks or blues.

Take a look at these! I just can't help but smile when I look at them. I hope she will like them as well. Of course, I bought more fabric than I need for a baby quilt, but since I was hitting quilt shops that I don't normally get to visit, I had to get while the getting was good. Most of these came from Quakertown Quilts in Friendswood, Texas.

Now, I just have to figure out what pattern to use? Any suggestions?

Betty, these are beautiful fabrics. You have good taste. I think any pattern will work. Have you tried quilterscache? or the book sweet and simple baby quilts?
