LUV burlap, and LUV Hexagons, sew....thought this would make a quicky quilty table topper. No batting!
The lattice went together fast. Incorporating negative space in Grandmother's Flower Garden was trickier; couldn't achieve an even edge.
Applique was easier after I took my sewmachine outside to the patio table. Turns out burlap is super messy to work with. Stitching all the negative space edges in these hexie-holes by machine means turning your work a lot! Which makes a lot of burlap dust. I used 50 wt. thread by Connecting Threads and it was heavy enough to hold the burlap together perfectly.
But - I was happily surprised by how many colors there are for burlap, even at JoAnns. And burlap is cheap too :) You maybe can't tell by these pictures, this is a sage green burlap. Made a nice my frame for my Fall (Honeycomb in Riley Blake) and Spring (GFG) scraps.
Edging finish was very simple. I straight-stitched where I wanted the border to start and then frayed edges.
Oh yeah, use spray basting as the burlap gets wonky real easily.
