Disappearing 9 patch

First finished quilt of 2010!
This quilt measures 40" by 54" and was constructed using the very simple, but impressive, disappearing 9 patch pattern. I chose to make a more modern design by using 4 colors for the quilt top and then used a great red ticking fabric for the trim, binding, and backing.
I thought it was time I made a quilt that could be given to a boy or girl. Finding boy fabrics can be a little tricky at times. All of the fabrics used in this quilt were produced in Japan.

The red ticking has a great vintage feel to it and compliments the "boy" design.
This was the first quilt that I used free motion quilting to finish. I found that it is not as intimidating or daunting as it seemed.
