Im making this for my 3 yr old grandson who will turn 4 later this month. I just now finished the top, I might add a border, maybe, material is in dryer and it depends on much I have. Its still wrinkled and covered with threads. The big picture looks like the bottom blocks are a different color, they arent, the black material is kind of mottled so that is showing up because of the flash, they are all the same color, but the sashing is solid black. Hope you like it.
