For those of us that plan, being random can be scary and we push against it hard.
I created two different kinds of 9 patch blocks out of 3.5 inch squares. One block was 9 printed fabrics pieced together and the second block is a simple white star block.
All together it turned out wonderful.
And see how well it works with the other table runner. They will both be used to cover the dressers in my bedroom.
