Sue's Trucks 9 Patch

Sue was looking for a simple pattern to make a bed quilt for her grandson, and we suggested a alternating 9-patch.  I sent Sue a drawing from EQ7, using only a few fabrics (and only for examples and for calculating fabric requirements--I wouldn't make one with these exact fabrics)..
.and she ran with that and created this wonderful quilt.  Sue's version is much nicer than my quick EQ7 sample, that's for sure!!

 The inner border had 'roads' meandering through it so we went with that for the quilting, using a bright green Magnifico thread to create meandering 'car tracks' on the quilt.  Sue likes loft, so we used a wool batt.

and a nice cozy flannel on the back of the quilt.
