My daughter was in need for another blanket. I surprised her by using her school's "tartan" colors. I decided on the disappearing nine patch since it is the closest to a tartan pattern that was easy for me to quilt at the time. I machine straight stitched down the middle of the thin strips. The diversity of patterns for the disappearing nine patch was fun to play with.
This is the back side of the quilt. I had extra material from the front that I used to make the back more interesting.
