Pieced Pot Holders

I was recently introduced to the Disappearing 4-Patch pattern and quickly became addicted to it! The piecing looks complicated but by starting with a simple 4-patch block that is cut into nine pieces it can quickly and easily be reassembled into this attractive 9-patch. Thus, the "disappearing 4-patch". 
 So far the solution to my block building mania has been to turn them into pot holders. But I am sure lap quilts, table runners, and wall hangings can't be too far behind.

Chevron Table Runners

Chevrons seem to be the current rage in fashion. They can fit into modern decor by using two strongly contrasting colours, or be made contemporary with subtle blends of batiks, or compliment a more traditional style with a combination of calico and checks.

Whatever the choice of fabrics this interlocking chevron pattern creates a stunning visual as it zig zags down your table top.
