This pattern is designed to honor military members for their service. The pattern treats the center star as one huge nine-patch block and goes together quickly.

This Baby is finally done. This my second quilt-as-you-go King carpenter star. The first time I chose to quilt the center star and ring as one piece and then add the remaining rings one at a time and quilt. This time I decided to divide the entire top into thirds and quilt. The second time is the charm! It was much much easier to quilt and there were fewer puckers to hide. Quilt as you go is not my first choice for a quilt but it is definitely doable for a quilt of this size. I chose to use it as a bedspread for my queen bed in the guest room. I’m very happy with the look.
This pattern redesign is based on original YouTube video: The Falling Triangles Quilt: Easy Quilting with Layer Cakes! By Missouri Star Quilt Company.
I actually manage to make my goal of 12 Christmas quilts this year...phew! I can now close the Christmas bin. But believe it or not I still have enough left to make more quilts.
I got great satisfaction making my first Quilt of Valor this summer. Missouri Star Quilt's The Disappearing Hourglass Quilt- Easy Quilting with Layer Cakes! is a fabulous pattern for that project.
When I first saw Jenny Doan's The Falling Triangles Quilt: Easy Quilting with Layer Cakes! on YouTube, I fell in love with the pattern. I love the effect of floating squares.
Yes...again! I've been making baby quilts lately and have enough scraps left over for an Arkansas Crossroads baby quilt. Looking back, I've made a throw size, two queen size, and now a baby size will be in the works. Clearly I'm attracted to this pattern.
This log-cabin style baby quilt is quick and very easy to piece. The finished size is 44 x 44.
