1930s Repro Disappearing 16-Patch Table Runner

Hailing from March of 2011, another QIP has been completed!  These blocks were made for a Quilt-Along over at Happy Quilting, called the Original Happy Quilting Quilt-Along.

The main block is a disappearing 16-patch made from 5" squares.  The 16-patch is cut in half diagonally and then sewn together with a half of a different 16-patch block, and then corner strips and triangles are added.  This result of this method is that the points do not match at the corners of the disappearing 16-patch block.  I do like matchy-matchy corners, but since I know it isn't a mistake, I can deal with it.

Made entirely from my stash ... hurray!!  Although I have been completing a lot of UFOs lately, it hasn't yet made a visible dent in my fabric closet.  It's no small closet ... it's a walk-in!  One side is my clothes, and the other two walls are fabric and batting on shelves from floor to ceiling ... a 9-foot ceiling!  The fabric acts as insulation, and the closet is warm in the winter and cool in the summer, even without its own air vent!  But I digress.

The backing is made from strips of coordinating fabrics in the middle of two pieces of sunny yellow.  The binding is the same sunny yellow print as the backing.  That yummy yellow is from the quilt shop {that used to be} around the corner from my house ... where I planned to work one day a week when my kids got old enough ... sigh ... the store went out of business before I had the opportunity.
