I just purchased this FQ bundle (14 pieces). I was planning on using them to make a baby quilt for my daughters friend but when I got it I realized all the colors run together. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make them work? I was thinking of bigger square blocks and make it scrappy. Originally I wanted to make pieced blocks but I can't do that without buying more solids. Maybe I just answered my own question.
Those would look great cut into squares...maybe 5", and then sashed and bordered in 2 1/2" white. Let me find a picture somewhere. That would be a sweet baby quilt. You could even piece the leftovers for the backing.
What color solid do you think you'll get? I think that would calm the busy prints but i don't know anything about quilting. Maybe the word is balance.

this is cute...
Jeanine and Is2116,
I think you're right; white sashing would tone it down and allow the eyes to rest on the different squares.
Not finding what I started looking for but here is another one that is cute.
Maybe pink or yellow?
this is cute...
Very cute, Jeanine. Amazing how the white sashing brightens it up.
Here is one like I was thinking...
I agree with Jeanine, the white sashing would make a beautiful baby quilt!!!
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
Jeanine. That baby blue quilt is so beautiful. I think I can do that with these FQs. Thanks for the suggestion. I was even thinking about adding 6 more FQs solids and trying Nanas MQ 7.
All three of these are gorgeous and would work really well with those prints. The white really does make the colors pop!
I was dabbling with my fabrics. Which one do you like best?
Annie I love the bottom one . the little squares really inhance the top. IMOO
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Barbara, I too like it, but am torn because I really like the pure baby look of the other one with more white.
I can't make up my mind, Maybe it will come to me as I put it together...
