    Cars disappearing 9-patch...

    Well - this quilt doesn't photo well from a distance, so you'll have to use your imaginations....

    I am making a Cars(from the movie) D9P throw for a friend's grandson...finished piecing it tonite...this weekend should be able to get it on the frame. Estimated finish time will be for Christmas.

    The flame fabric will be the binding....The last picture is from the distance - but I think you'll agree, w/ the black & white flag makes that hard!!

    Thanks for looking and hope you get it..

    How cool is that. What a great quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    That is really fun. I love the fabric choices. You are right, it doesn't do it justice photographed further away.
