    Charity and Children's Quilt Ideas

    Hi everyone, My church guild is trying to come up with new patterns for children's quilts. I have a bunch of charm packages and a few jelly rolls but cannot come up with any ideas. Any go to patterns out there? Thank you for your thoughts.

          I look at Pinterest for ideas and free patterns.

            I made this one recently using scraps of different sizes. It's very easy to make and has a free tutorial.

              My go to is the disappering nine patch, but you might want to check out this recent post https://forum.missouriquiltco.com/sh...ad.php?t=79772 for the jelly rolls.

                image.jpgI like Warm Wishes, Falling Charms, disappearing 9 patch, fence rail, fence rail diamond, fence rail stars, Irish chain with appliqué or embroidery in the blocks between the chains, super simple squares, 9 patch star, which I just finished yesterday. And of course, Jelly roll race! All are precut friendly and very simple to put together. All pictured here except D9P. I also like Double Slice Layer Cake for using large scale prints.

                When a new tutorial comes out that interests me, I try it out making a small quilt. These are the quilts I donate to charities or children's groups. These were left over from previous events. They are also great practice pieces for new quilting patterns Im' trying to learn!

                  I love disappearing 9 patch for baby quilts - quick and easy, great for featuring cute prints. 502063A7-FFF1-4E28-A38E-5E889682C7BB.jpg

                    I think when donating to childrens charities, the patterns are insignificant
                    , its the love you put in that makes them work

                          Falling charms, 4 patch using charm squares. pin wheels, disappearing 9 patch, Chinese coin quilt, and simple scrappy charms all over. Also sewing on telephone book paper on diagonal and putting 4 blocks together to make your pattern, very nice. Check Bonnie Hunter's site. Have fun. Some times its just the fabrics that you use that makes the quilt, not the pattern.

                            Jenny's Super Simple Hourglass! It is just 4-patch units cross cut and the nice thing is, you can use any size square to make it as long as all of your squares are the same size. And it doesn't need a border. You could practically be comatose and not mess it up. The only tweak I would do is when you cross cut it --cut almost to the middle with your rotary cutter and where all seams come together make that final cut with your scissors. Saves wear on the rotary blades.

                              Hi Pat!

                              This one is really fun to put together and uses charm packs. I found that making 2 - 6 x 6 squares and cutting each one diagonally once, you have four pieced triangles and you can play with the layout a little more. It can also be enlarged by making the squares 7 x 7 or 8 x 8.
