This is a "throw" sized blanket made of fleece and cotton. The blocks are works of art created by sharpie tie dye. This is called the rag quilt pattern. You can go here to get instructions: http://www.freequiltideas.com/free_quilt_patterns/Rag_Quilt_Pattern.htm
Rag quilts are great for beginners, easy, and fun to make. This is a durable quilt that will last. I made one out of denim a few years ago.
