Disappearing 9 Patch Table Runner

I finished up the last of the Christmas gifts yesterday!  Sandy H has been talking about disappearing 9 patches on her podcast and I’ve been wanting to try one, so I thought a table runner would be just the ticket!

Table runner frontI had a left over layer cake from Kate Spain‘s Christmas line, Joy,  that I cut up into 5 inch squares, then used those to create four 9-patch blocks.  This was super easy and fun to put together.  I can see an entire quilt made out of these fabrics 🙂

table runner - backThis is the backing fabric.  Please ignore the mess of  Christmas stuff in the background.  I love this fabric.  I’m sure that comes as a shock to many of you….NOT.  I wasn’t familiar with this designer (Jill Simmons Smith), but the fabric is called “Santa Paws” by Illustration Ink for Robert Kaufman.  It comes with a gray background as well…which I wish I had snapped up.  I “might” have purchased a “few” yards of this one 🙂

    • The fabric from the front was from a layer cake I purchased last year (Joy, by Kate Spain). The backing fabric I purchased from my local shop, but you can still find it online. 🙂

  1. I love it! Sandy inspired me to start playing with disappearing 9-patches, too. I’ve been cutting scraps into squares and stitched up a few today, might take a while to finish though since I’m thinking of doing it as a leaders and enders project.

I love comments :)
