Flitting...

I said I was flitting between different projects this weekend!


I had a lovely dinner at Linda's this evening - celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday - and when I got back I fancied doing some hand sewing in front of the telly rather than machine sewing over the telly, so I couldn't hear it (which is normal). The hand embroidery for the next block in my BOM wasn't quite ready, so I went for my go to hand sewing project - my hexy table runner. And I think I may have finished adding hexies - what do you think?

This is laid out on the table it will eventually live on, on the backing fabric I have already selected.


I've tried to make it look random and wobbly, not regimented with 4 hexies in each row....


Now I need to applique it down, pick a backing fabric, pick a binding fabric, decide whether to go with cotton or polyester wadding, quilt it, and bind it - was I daft enough to put this on my 1st Quarter Finish Along? I may try and order some more of the Art Gallery I've used on the front to back it...

It´s great! I love hexies (the traditional way of setting) but this random look is really brilliant! I must try something similar. Thanks for sharing.
