When I left off with this project I was telling you about matching up all the intersections on the bias edges of these 14 triangles.
A lot of slow and careful sewing later and voila!
I'm so happy with the way this turned out! Very dramatic don't ya think?
I just have to brag a little bit about about those match ups. Starching, pinning and slowing down really did pay off.
Here you can see that pressing the seams open really helped the project to lay flat. That's a lot of fabric meeting in the middle.
I had left over fabric so I made a couple more projects. The triangles are smaller and so the projects end up smaller. These things are like potato chips you can't eat just one!
I ended up with three. The large table runner measures 44" x 20"; the small runner is 24" x 10"; the hexagon mat is 22" x 20".
I found the perfect matching red for the backing in my stash and Warm and Natural batting remnants in the stash too.
Lots of ditch quilting on these with linen color on top and a rust red in the bobbin. I think I'll bind them in red too. Love the way this project has come together.
Have you ever had a project that you didn't have directions for but you just went for it anyway? How did it turn out for you?
Linking up to Design Wall Monday, I just love looking at everyone's eye candy!
Until next time,
