    I started this yesterday, it will be for an old friend of mine from high school. He took me to our senior prom, do you think the material pattern is ok for a guy? I am working with material that I already had. I am going to put the striped boarder but I think a darker one first than the stripe. What do you think??

    Yes...the dark border before the stripe would really pop it!

    Definitely a great quilt for a guy, and I agree a darker border before the strip would really set it off!

    I love the colors. Definately a dark "stop" border before the stripe.

    A black & red D9P is one of the best because of the contrasts. Beautiful quilt. I think I'm going to try one and use some UGA (Univ of GA) material for one of my nephews.

    Hmm...why is this called a D9P? I'm seeing blocks of 4 patches--different sized. I love combos of black/white/red, too.

    Pretty and use a dark border for sure before the stripe border to frame it. He will love it.

    Hi Millie! It's a Disappearing 9 Patch...big 9 patch cut horizontally and vertically and then flipped around to form different patterns. It's very versatile and fun pattern....also very fast to put together.

    Oh, oh! Wherever did you get the checked fabric with the gradated tone levels? That is just about the most delicious stuff I've ever seen?
