My disappearing 9-patch-tablerunner no 1 is nearly finished

When I found my fabric for the back, I discovered somebody had used it for a spooky garment.... Two eyes-similar holes were cut out of the fabric, so I had to add a strip of blue to make the remaining fabric long enough.
Close-up of my freemotion quilting (backside). Since all fabrics used in the tablerunner have a coffee-theme, I quilted waves that should symbolize heat steam from coffeecups :-)

The first tablerunner cut and quilted.

Close-up quilting on front. I used a multicolored thread from Sømsenteret in Gjøvik and it is called Poly Sheen Multi from Mettler.
