Typically, when I make one of my tried and true Vanishing 9-Patch quilts, I put the main fabrics in the corners and in the middle, but I was working with a Charm Pack and wanted to get 9 blocks out of the 42 charms and so I put the main fabrics on each of the four sides and the white background fabric in the middle and in the corners!!
But I did not even think about it when I did it - good lesson learned!! THINK!! It will be fine (but not what I wanted) once the border goes on, it gets quilted and a border is placed.
I think I will call it my "elegant" table topper. It is for my friend's 89-year old mom who lovessssssss tableclothes!! I will just tell her that this is truly an original!! She'll love - it's a table cloth!!
