    Very nice! I think when I get my first one done, I will try the one like your top picture. That way it is still easy blocks but a little more complex and still adorable. Your other quilts are awesome also. I want to do more of the baby or lap quilts. I have a cousin who has a baby boutique and once I get good I hope to sell some in her store for the extra cash and the experience. :)

    Toni, I think that's called a shaded 9 patch. It's a nine patch pattern of 9 patch blocks. It went together very quickly.

    It's a LeMoyne star in the center, then I just charted the rest of it out on a grid and played with it until I liked it. The niece quilts are mostly a reflections of their moms. Chloe's mom is very quiet and sweet. Keira's mom is pretty flambouyant, but also sweet.

    Those are just beautiful. They will be lucky babies to have one of those quilts in their nursery.

    I don't know if it is called anything special. The center is a LeMoyne star. I've seen someone's avatar with the star and the next outer round and I think they called it the carpenter's wheel. I just started with the star and played with the rest until I had something I liked and it was big enough for a baby quilt. :) It's all squares and half square triangles, very easy once you get it charted on paper.
