I Spy quilt - Disappearing 9-patch

This is the almost finished quilt top for my great-nephew Van who lives in Virginia. I was in a couple of novelty fabric swaps with Flynn n Fabric, (4-inch squares), so still have makings for 2 more quilts for the other great nephews. The disappearing 9-patch cuts down the tedium of creating the sashing and cornerstones. I still need to add the sashing on the right and bottom.

I'm debating with self about a border; the photo looks pretty good without it. The backing will be a fabric with cars and roads, as this little guy likes cars, so I think he can use it with his Hot Wheels.
