Happy news! Friends of ours are having a baby boy in November! We know them from the Volkswagen community and their baby is due very near to one of the biggest VW weekends on the East Coast. (It's not these friends, but they are due again in March so I have some time before that one.) I am planning to make him a crib sized quilt featuring Heather Ross's Happy Campers but I was only able to find one fat quarter. (OK, I found more and some yardage, but I am not paying $30-45 per yard. I don't care how cute the fabric is or how much I like our friends. I think it's extreme price gouging. I'll pay extra because the fabric is hard to find and out of print, but $45 per yard?)
Question for all my quilty friends: What pattern/style do you think will show off the fabric the best considering the limited amount I have? Log cabins? Squares? Some combination of patterns? I would really appreciate any input so I can get started.
P.S. Don't be afraid to link to blog posts, flickr photos, etc. I'm visual.
