Disappearing “Flowers’ Table Runner

 

I’ve been wanting to try the disappearing nine patch and I’ve got Quiltecke’s  ‘Flowers’ stitcheries that I was planning to use for a table runner and placemats. So…..

.. I came up with this!

It’s a table runner alright but the nine patch doesn’t look too disappearing . Where did I go wrong? Is it the fabric choice? I used five different fabrics. How  many should it be?

As usual, I did straight line quilting. Thought I try some random lines and boxes as I stitch along. I think I like it!

I used only four of the ‘Flowers’ stitcheries. Saving the rest for the placemats.

Tomorrow seem like a good day for making placemats!

 

Happy Stitching !

  5. The stitcheries are really sweet. I particularly love the barrow full of blooms. Reminds me of the one we plant out each year in our garden.

  6. It is fabulous, Penny. Maybe the dark color was just a bit too overbearing to "disappear". But the finished product is beautiful. I need to stitch those blocks too but there is just so much good stuff out there in blogland, it is so hard to choose.
    Take care! Love your work!

  10. I think it looks great but I think maybe the purple is a little too bold and so it doesn't blend in like the others.
    Still a beautiful job though.
