Nine Patch Baby Quilt--New Design I Made

It has been a while since I posted anything here. Life has been hectic lately.
The ladies over at Crochetville have gotten their hooks into me once again (pun intended). They have persuaded me to make a Saltine Afghan. What is a Saltine Afghan you ask??? It is basically a quilt that is crocheted instead of sewed. It is made out of small granny squares--the ones we use are 2 rounds of a granny square.
One of the ladies--Cara--has a site called The Happy Yellow House. You can visit her site HERE.
She has a lot of beautiful patterns for the quilts, but they were very intimidating to me since they were so big and I have never made anything with squares that had to be sewn together. So I decided to try my hand at designing my own. And this is what I came up with and made.
It is a Nine Patch Baby Quilt.

I had so much fun making it that I have designed a few more. I am almost half way done with my 2nd design.

I have more pictures to share, but don't have the time right now, so they will have to wait till another time.
