A neighbor came by yesterday wanting to know how to do a disappearing 9-patch. How often does that happen!
She is a new quilter and had watched an online video but hesitant to go it alone...so now I have another UFO! It is a very fun method and quick...this table runner only took a couple hours to make. (Would have been faster if I wasn't talking someone through the process...like that saying, "if it will take one quilter one hour then it will take two quilters two hours..." Basically to do this you make a 9-patch (my squares are 5 inches unfinished) then slice the 9-patch through the center block giving you sashing and cornerstones.
I wanted to get a picture of hers before she left - she used cat fabrics! I think I'll finish up this Christmas one today before it gets lost in the UFO pile...(it measures 34-1/2 by 15 finished)
Update on the pets...Brownie is doing fine. Macbeth is having problems with stairs and still sleeps most of the day. Last night he had a panic attach (don't know what else to call it.) We ended up sleeping on the floor in the living room for most of the night...it was the only way to keep him calm.
