Here's another quilt pattern from the website, it's the Downy touch of comfort heart quilt that they show in the Downy commercials.

Here are some more patterns, I added them to the first post.

Other Quilt Pattern Links you might like
Remember the recommended size is approximately 38-40" x 46-48" for the regular quilts and approximately 36 inches square for the NICU quilts. Some of these are probable close enough and others you may want to alter a little to get the dimensions a little

Scrap Strip Squares Quilt

Nine Patch Lattice Quilt

Charm Squares Baby Quilt

This is cute but it's a little big, might want to alter a little:
Sweet Baby Quilt

This one is super simple but also a little big. I would leave off one column so it is rectangle and make the border a little smaller or leave it off all together:
Baby Girl Quilt

This would be great with a colored inner border instead of the prairie points, I can't see that those would be good in the hospital! This is the first quilt I made too:
Pinwheel Baby Quilt

This is only 28" x 36" but would be very simple to make 36" square for a NICU size:
Betty's Bowtie Quilt

Stacked Coins Baby Quilt

sneakers and sports equipment. I am pretty nervous, I pulled it out of the bag last night, and then put it right back and made a couple of granny squares, lol!
I will probably work on it in the evenings this week. I bought the batting for it a few weeks ago while it was on sale, so I've got everything I need, just need a little bit of Irish courage. But- not too much Irish courage.

I hope it's okay for me to write this here, I can't sew for the life of me so i can't help, but I just want to say this:

All of you that are doing this are awesome!!!
I spend a lot of time in the children's hospital, and not the last admission, but the one before that I got a green monkey quilt donated by some ladies in the community. You seriously can't even imagine how awesome it was to get my very own quilt, and it comes with me every admission.

Thanks so, so much for donating your time to make these, it's so awesome of you all, and i'm sure every kid that gets one of these will be just as grateful as i am that someone spent their time making it just for them.

I don't have photos of mine yet, but I currently have 3 quilt tops done for QFK and one in progress. I'm going to visit my Mom in a few weeks and will quilt them all on her longarm, so I'm stocking up on tops to quilt while she's at work.

The kit I got had guitars with flames. Then I made a really brightly colored stash quilt with cats and polka-dots. Then a firetrucks & flames stash quilt and finally, the one I am making now has knights, princesses and dragons on it. I'm just making the four-patch ones so far. My pregnant brain is pretty happy with simple, repetitive math!

I have enough leftover from the the one I am making now to piece a backing, but the firetrucks and cats will need some luck in my stash to find something. Of course, the local quilt shop has a $5 a yard sale rack, so at worst I;d have to spend $7.50 on the backing - not too bad. I'm having a blast making them though and it has sort of busted me out of the rut I've been in lately of not doing much sewing.

I may try and get photos tomorrow. It will depend if my quilt holder will cooperate!
