THE REST OF THE STORY

i just didn't stop with the disappearing nine patch Saturday. That evening I made this.....it still needs to be quilted. At first I did not like it. This too is a disappearing nine patch. The dark green colors were suppose to be the pinwheel but it didn't happen. But the more I looked at this, the more it grew on me. So, time permitting, I will quilt this soon.



This is just a little table topper for church, this side is for Christmas (hummmmm as if you didn't know that)....


This side is yes...Thanksgiving. We used it today. Just added a little something extra to the table.
Just two pieces sandwiched together and stippled. Yes.....that is all I know how to do....it is what I love to do but I want to get daring one day and try other stuff....when I get brave? When my confidence is at its best!
When the cows come home? Whenever!!



Oh, one more thing.....I wasn't able to decide on a binding so I just serged around it....looks good enough. You might have to double click to see better...forgot to crop...sorry

Barb definetly very pretty. When you get ready to free motion you must buy Diane's book at http://dianegaudynski.blogspot.com/

I like the long runner and the table topper, too.

I guess that's why they call it the disappearing nine patch...I can't see it at all. But the quilts are wonderful.

Barb, I can see why you were disappointed in your disappearing nine patch not delivering the pinwheel design, but I can also see why it grew on you! One of Gene's favorite words comes to mind -- it's "wonkedy" -- thus an original! I'm sure the quilting will make it even more endearing. What a great idea -- a reversible holiday table topper!

Looks like you've been busy getting ready for the holidays. All are very pretty and what a good idea to serge around the table topper.

Everything looks great! I love the top piece. Is it going to be a table runner?

There are many quilters who only dream about being able to stipple their own quilts. They can only do straight line quilting. I love to stipple because it seems more forgiving to me. I've been practicing stitching in the ditch but I keep wobbling out of line.

I have been experimenting with the DNP for awhile now. I can actually get the fabrics to be exactly where I want them in the finished layout. It took me awhile, but I finally figured it out. (I never said I was too bright!) I love the reversible table mat! That is a good idea and I think I am going to steal it!

I really like the disappearing 9 patch. It turned out great.

Barb, I think you got me motivated to make a Disappearing 9 patch too. I am always looking for great, but fast quilts. Love the tablerunner too!

That's such a great block. I just finished 2 of them. Well, finished is pushing it. One is completely done. :-)

Great projects, Barb. You must sew 24/7 to get all the things done that you post about. Wow!
