six pointed star table runner

I gave you a sneak peek a few weeks ago of a project I'd been working on for a while.

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.
