I have this fabric to do a cot quilt for my baby, but have no idea what style to do it in? I think the circles in the design put me off and I don't know what would look good.

Any ideas? :)

I'm liking strip quilts at the moment and that would allow you to see a chunk of fabric (instead of cutting it up into tiny pieces where you might not be able to tell that it's a truck). A bit like the car one at the top of this page http://littlebirdiesecrets.blogspot.co. ... orial.html
I'm just doing a strip quilt at the moment that has my 3 nice fabrics and then I'm just using colour coordinating solid for the rest.

You could get some plain blue, green, yellow or even do strips of the truck fabric and then use the solids to piece stars or something

See how this one only uses one main fabric and then coordinating solids

I like that circle quilt it looks awesome, could you do something similar. Otherwise I would go simple in a large block pattern - BUT i am not a quilter :wink: I was going to do l a quilt and had a teddy panel in the end it became a duvet cover instead cause it was way easier.

I have made a couple of quilts from this book

http://www.leniwiener.com/tag/3-fabric-quilts/

They are really simple but quite effective, especially if you get the toning right on your three fabrics, and you have quite large blocks so you get to see the larger scale prints.

The disappearing 9 patch window pane looks really cool

That definitly looks like a good book! I've offered to make my step-daughter a quilt for her baby (I'm going to be a Nana!) and she has requested a polka dot quilt, wouldn't have a clue what that one looks like either! But I feel I should make my sons one first :P

I like Warm Wishes...https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=warm+ ... 66&bih=600

It's easy, allows you to show off a feature fabric like the one you have, and has a nice secondary pattern to it that frames the feature fabric blocks. There are some really ugly ones out there though so don't let that put you off! I made one that I've posted a photo of in the handmade thread.
