I made my first disappearing 9 patch for a Christmas gift. My son brought his girlfriend for Christmas and I wanted to get her something special. She absolutely loved it! No worries that she will take good care of it. There is cuddly blue flannel on the back. I tried machine quilting it, and won't try that again. The pattern is easy, and my beginner sewer adult daughter even wants to try one now.
She loves sailing.
It is a snuggle size, about a twin size.
I had to take this photo so I could remember the placement later.
