    I'm looking for an ocean themed baby quilt. I was thinking of doing a small "Surf Song" bargello but I've done one of those before. I wanted to try something new and exciting. Any ideas?

    Here is one called 'Dance of the Sea Turtles'. Even if you don't use the kit, you might get some ideas from it.

    If you have ocean-themed fabric, another idea is a kind of enlarged 9-patch, where the center piece is rectangular, similar to a panel, the corners are square (not small), and the other four side pieces are smaller rectangular pieces that fill in the connecting spaces between the corners. Does that make sense?

    What about a Warm Wishes style quilt with fish or ocean fabric?

    Or, a big panel and borders?

    There is a pattern called "Fish Stix" that I think is really cute. I made it for my Great-Niece. I will try to attach a picture of the finished quilt.

    That is a very pretty quilt! I downloaded the free pattern. I looked for the kit but it's pretty pricey and still missing some of the fabric! But, thankfully, I have some fish fabrics so I'm thinking I'm going to use my own stash to build it out. Thanks!

    I just bought this kit from my LQS this weekend. My 8 month old loved the colors!
