It's finally finished and will be gifted today - only 3 months late! It is a table runner for my Mother-in-law's birthday. I used the english paper piecing method to create the large hexagons, with the central star in one fabric and the filler diamonds around the outside in a complimentary fabric. Each pair of fabrics was then reversed to create a second hexagon. Eight hexagons in total were then machine appliqued onto 3 different cream background squares.
As table runners go it's fairly large however I'm quite pleased with the results. This was one of those projects I had to pick up and put down several times and almost force myself to finish.
|Just for a laugh - here are my trusty photographic assistants. They are used to the strange behaviour of dragging things out to the line and photographing them from every angle.|
