    ...and another Falling Charms baby quilt

    Just finished this one for a coworker who's expecting. The baby's room is blues and greens and undersea stuff, although I'm betting it's softer colors. But, I figure this will work, too. It's mostly Northcott Undersea Adventures (including the backing/binding). The Caribbean blue strips were from my LQS. I have no idea what brand. I am enjoying doing these, since they go quickly, and have the potential for many, many variations. I do think I like the use of the accent square, but maybe soon I'll make one without. I used a higher loft batting for this and quilted in the ditch. I think that makes it look puffier and snugglier for the baby.

            Is there a special trick you used for adding the accent squares?

                How cute, love the colors.

                For all of those asking if there is a trick, not sure if this is the way that it was done here, but this is basically a 3 color Disappearing 9 patch. After you cut your 9 patch just lay it out in the L7L7l7 Pattern.

                H - is it HELPFUL?
                I - is it INSPIRING?
                N - is it NECESSARY?
                K - is it KIND?

                  I was thinking more of how it was cut out, Like a strip of green sewn down a wide strip of blue and cut them. Was that how you did it?

                    Hulamoon - that's how I did it. I think the nine patch trick would work, too. I haven't done any of those, so I don't think that way.

                      What a great idea. So you make it like a D9P, cut it a part then lay out the rows in a Falling Charms setting. This is a wonderful quilt. Love your color choices. Adding this idea to my long list.

                          Love your fabric so much! I like the falling charms this way - a little less scrappy

                            Yey! When I saw it that's what popped in my head for some reason I have a childrens print that has been in my stash for about eight years. I bought it for clothing, like pj bottoms. It needs to be fussy cut, but your quilt just spoke to me to use it for this

                              There is a tutorial how to do this. The way I see it, is you just need to add the cornerstone where the strips join.
