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 !
