  9. DP9 on Point

So this quilt came together thanks to you all showing us new ways of arranging simple blocks. This was my 1st DP9 too. Hopefully the colors will come over true. Its a beige background, blues and browns blocks with solid black as the coins. I also found a backing with a black background and lots of bicycles.
