Disappearing 9-patch Baby Quilts

Sometimes I pull fabrics from off my shelf and my closet and put them together in different combinations. These are a couple I did back in June.

For the blue quilt, I pulled shades of light turquoise blue to minty green. 
 I found a blue solid that was just slightly darker than the darkest blue in the prints and used it for the smaller patches and the binding. Such a sweet baby boy quilt!
And then I took a bundle of lemony yellow to orange prints and had enough of them for the quilt top and matched them with a multi color stripe for the binding. Perfect for a baby girl!
Some all-over stipple quilting and they are done.
A beautiful sunny day for photographs. 
Disappearing 9-patch quilts are so much fun to make and depending on the fabric choices, they look completely different from each other. A good tutorial can be found here if you want to try your own.
