    Designing a quilt

    I'm trying to design a baseball quilt. I have ideas but just cannot bring everything g together. I'm going to use baseball fabric and most likely make it red white and blue 10 inch blocks and/or strips. I want to put a baseball patch in the middle of it with a huge 5 point star alongside it. ( representing my baseball star grandson). I also want to double the batting and use a quilted diamond fabric for the back of it ( needs to be very warm) and want to use the tie method to bring it all together. I want to make it simple yet special. I've scoured books and hundreds of patterns with no solid ideas. Is there a website where u can actually make your own design or if anyone has ideas for me, it would be most appreciated. I wanted this done for a Christmas gift but can't seem to move forward. Thanks in advance.

    Seems like you have a pretty good vision of what you want to have it look like. I would draw it out. Then maybe some one can help more.

          Paper pieced, but the good part is you can take the pattern to your local print/copy shop and have them enlarge it to what ever size you want!

          Not sure what you mean by "baseball patch"

            M* has a baseball panel if that would help you out any.

            I really hate it when the voices in my head argue among themselves as though I wasn't even in the room.

            I tried to be normal once......worst two minutes of my life.

              Draw it, then graph it in 5" sections like a charm pack would be. Then just cut the corners and fit it together. Here is one I designed that was to celebrate my son's graduation for his pharmacy doctoratepharmacygrad.jpg
