Quilt for my son

Having one bed sized quilt under my belt, I was ready to take on one more.

After searching for patterns again I came across the idea of the disappearing nine square quilt. I thought it would be great and liked it even more with only three colors.

I made one square out of construction paper and then asked my son to help me design it. He had great ideas of how to reposition the cut pieces. Using the paper really helped.

Using fairly large squares made everything go quickly and then deciding to use sashing gave the quilt a nice look and made it bigger without having to add more squares.

My son wanted all the colors to be solids, but we compromised with some patterns.

Love that disappearing nine square!
