I was conversing with some of the hubsters quilty cousins recently about hexagons and I said I'd make one and turn it into a little project. So here it is.
I might make a grandmas flower garden BLOCK and add some hand embroidery to it but other than that I have no desire to do a humungous project. I might do some embroidery on the middle of the current mat, but it will have to wait for a while.
I left the outside edge of one of the petals open so I could turn everything right side out and then machine stitched round the edge after ironing everything flat. There is also machine stitching round the inner hexagon.
Finished size 8"x8".
It took about 2 hours to make it but now I know what I am doing it will probably take about 1 hour.
There is no padding between the layers but it could still be used as a mug rug to sit a cold/warm drink on. Roll on summer pink lemonade :)
Mmmm - I just read Paula's new sewing challenge. I think this might work for it :)
