disappearing nine patch table runner tutorial
For this table runner you will need:
- Sixteen 5" squares of red fabric in different patterns
- Four 5" squares of dark blue
- Sixteen 5" squares of white
- 1/3 yard binding fabric-red
- 1 yard backing fabric
- Batting material
Cut 5" squares of all colours and lay out five coloured squares and four white squares into a nine patch as shown in the photo below. I put dark blue in the center here.
Sew the squares into rows with a quarter inch seam allowance and then join the rows together.
Cut the nine patch block into four pieces both vertically and diagonally. Now you have new 7" blocks.
Now comes the funny part; playing out the pattern of table runner!
There are so many different ways of making out the disappearing nine patch blocks. There are no rules here, it depends on your imagination and taste. Below is how I decided it to be. I chose the layout and then sew the new four blocks together. You should make four of these disappearing nine patch pattern blocks.
When you join the four disappearing nine patch blocks together, you will get the quilt top done for table runner. Now it is ready to quilt it.
Layer the quilt top, batting and backing together. Pin the layers together and pin it. I haven't quilted it yet but planning machine quilting and use red solid as binding. The post will be updated when finished. What do you think of the result? Let me know it.
