This was a pretty quick start to finish for me though - just about a week. On an expedition to IKEA, I purchased a TV stand for my living room. It's a beautiful wood piece, which I'm certain my heavy TV is going to scratch up like crazy. So, currently, the TV is sitting on a make-shift protective layer of some old placemats and a coaster - not so attractive.
I was browsing blogland when I came across a tutorial for a Disappearing Nine-Patch table runner over at Rachel's blog. I'd been itching to try a disappearing nine-patch and this finally pushed me over the edge - plus I finally had a good reason to make something.
So, after a bit of browsing on Etsy (I love that site), I settled on the Cotton Blossom's charm pack and waited for it to arrive in the mail.
Once it arrived, I got to work....
It matches my decor in my living room really well, so I'm excited. Plus, it's got that wonderful crinkly goodness I read about on blogs about machine-quilting and then putting it in the wash.
I was pretty happy that I could find some coordinating fabrics for the backing and binding in my stash - I'm trying to work through.
Next up is to put it under the TV - I'm just kinda sad so much of it will be hidden! It's one of the first few projects I'm keeping for myself!
ETA: These disappearing nine-patch blocks are great! I've been able to make some really cute baby quilts using them...check them out: Baby Boy Chase Quilt, Baby Boy Sean Quilt & Baby Girl Ellie Quilt! Such a versatile block!
