May Goal for A Lovely Finish

I joined the Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild last weekend ... just in time to participate in their charity kids quilts event later this month.   This month, my goal for a Lovely Finish has been made for me.

Bin of NoveltiesI have a few ideas for something a little different ... maybe I'll even manage to contribute a couple of quilts.

I'll start here, in the crate of collected novelty fabrics: some yardage, some 10-inch squares (from long ago swaps), some charms.

There's a little bit of everything there ... it will be fun to sort through them all and come up with something interesting (and finished!) before the May 19 guild meeting.

What's your favorite I-spy or other kid patten for charity quilts?   I'm not sure that I actually I NEED another more ideas floating around in my head, but I'd love to hear about your favorites.

Congrats on joining a guild. My favorite kid I Spy pattern are the wonky square blocks surrounded by solid fabrics. To me they are less busy than a hexie. Squares makes it easier for a little one to focus. I have some novelties and solids ready to cut. If you email me, I'd be happy to send you a photo.

BQ3 is the quilt pattern that Hilda and I turn to most frequently these days. You need one large scale print - how large depend on how big you make the blocks. But this goes together quickly and easily and we have a quilt top in nothing flat.

I made my daughter an Ispy quilt by turning charm squares into snowballs. And I've made others with framed 4-patches. I love looking at those collections of novelty prints!

I have made a fe wispy quilts which were made up of several sizes of squares and rectangles that once sewn and a sashing attached were cut windy then sewn together , it is a fun quilt and kids seem to love . I use to exchange10"squares when I first started quilting and using the internet around 2000

Love the tub of fabrics - what fun to go through them! My favorite is actually not a pattern - it's how one of the shops shows off groupings of fabrics! It has a large square in the middle with smaller squares bordering it. Probably 4" finished square in the center with 2" squares around it for an 8" block, though any size would work, depending on the scale of the fabrics.
