Welcome back to Day 2 of Marblehead Week of tutorials and giveaways!
Today's tutorial: Disappearing Ninepatch Table Runner
Use this clever piecing technique to make an autumn-hued runner for your table!
- Twenty 5" Marblehead squares
- 1/3 yard white solid
- 1/3 yard binding fabric
- 1 yard backing fabric
- 18" x 58" piece of batting
Cut sixteen 5" squares from the white solid.
Lay out 5 colored squares and 4 white squares into a ninepatch as shown. Sew the squares together into rows and join the rows.
Cut the ninepatch in half in both directions to create 7" blocks.
Make 3 more ninepatches and cut to create a total of 16 blocks.
Now it's time to lay out the runner! There are many different ways to lay out these disappearing ninepatch blocks. We'll show you a few options here, but you can experiment more on your own as well.
Sew the blocks into rows and join the rows.
Layer the backing right side down, batting, and runner right side up. Baste and quilt as desired. Use four 2-1/4" x 42" strips to bind the runner.
