I haven't seen any really good patterns for small amounts of yarn in baby chunky. I guess you could knit up various swatches and then piece them together for a quilt.

I have a crib blanket that was given to my DS at his birth. It was made by my husband's grandmother. She had passed away but had crocheted this blanket for her first great grandson (my DS).

She did a granny square rectangle and then just incorporated the various yarns as she went along. She had a great eye for colour because they worked together amazingly well.

Perhaps you could do something similar in a knit. Perhaps do something lacy that doesn't get to affected by guage.
