On my trip to Idaho, I'll be visiting one of my nieces. I realized this morning, I don't have a hostess gift for her!
Lucky for me, I have a huge collection of 5" squares, and a new pattern for a combination table-topper/placemats.
The design is based on the "disappearing 9-patch", aka "split 9-patch." A disappearing 9-patch starts with -- surprise! -- a simple 9-patch block:
Next, slice the block through the center both horizontally and vertically. Then turn each of the resulting four pieces one-quarter turn and reassemble the block:
I'll show you the assembly of the table-topper for Works in Progress Wednesday.
