I love to do novelty quilts. I like the bright colors. I made 3 little boy quilts and 1 little girl quilt this spring. I haven't posted pictures of  all of them yet. Must get around to that. I am…Continue

I have not made any yet but have several WIMMs (Works in my mind). I saw a really cute vegetable one that could also be done for fruits. And I want to do a couple I Spy quilts. Love I Spy books and can't wait for my grandson to get old enough so I can enjoy them again.

Love the ideas and discussions here. I like to make calendar quilts. I purchase seasonal- or holiday-themes fabrics when they're steeply discounted after the holiday (St. Patrick's, Valentine's, etc.). Most months are easy, but some are less so. January can be snowfall, August garden harvest veggies, April showers, May flowers -- but June is a pain. Have never found  fabric with brides/grooms or graduates, so have had to use stereotyped male hobbies (hunt, fish, tools) to represent Father's Day. Made into 12-inch squares with sashing, these quilts are twin-bed size or suitable for tossing into a car or camper.

Hi all, just joined this group.  I like novelty quilts and have made a few.  A cute camping one for a young grandson, and just finished an Indian theme quilt for my older son.  They are fun to do. Hope to get more idea here.

I've made many I Spy quilts. Usually as big brother/big sister gifts when I give a baby quilt. My son loves his! I made it for him just before his sister was born. I used things he liked then, Elmo, Thomas, etc and things I thought he'd like as he gets older, super heros and Diego. He still loves it alost two years later. I hope he will for years to come yet.

Currently I am waiting (impatiently) for my blocks to arrive for an alphabet swap that I participated in. We all signed up for what letter of the alphabet we thought we could scavenge from our know, p for pencils, r for rockets, etc.

I'll post pictures when the blocks come, and when I get them sewn up! I think it would be fun if we get enough people here to do an I Spy or an Alphabet swap!

Seriously, that has got to be the cutest "cheeseburger" I've ever seen!!!  Good Job!

I made a burger quilt and a cupcake quilt - do they qualify as novelty quilts?

I am currently working on a frog quilt from an internet swap. I'm also working on a memory quilt that includes everyone's hand print tracing & includes names, DOB & pictures from digital photos. My left hand has been in a cast & can't wait (2 more wks) to get it off so I can get the borders on them. I'll post pictures when they are done.

I like to make up my own patterns, if you would call that novelty, not sure, and I use some of the designs, but then sort of "do my own thing" usually turns out fine. I think everyone should use there own imagination while quilting. It is more fun that way. I have some of my projects on my page, but others are loaded on my old computer, and I need to put them on my new computer so I can use them online. Most are gifts for family, and so I don't have them here at home.
