Mardell, a fairly new quilter, gracefully took some fabric--none of which went together and tried disappearing nine patch with it. The result was amazing. My husband really likes this quilt. It is quite striking in the darks that were used. It looks like she tied it all together by using the same fabric for the center square before she cut it up into the smaller blocks. Great job Mardell and the quilting now makes it officially finished and ready for gifting to the Layton Family Connections Center.
