Description

I bought some hexagons papers and wanted to have a play because I'd never used them before. I had a hunt round Design Seeds for a photo with a colour scheme that appealed and found a beautiful one of a lily, pulled some fabrics from my stash and took it all on holiday with me. 

The plan is to add a few more hexagons round the edges so it doesn't look quite as regimented, then applique it to a cream background, do some hand quilting and create a table runner for our dining room. Which is in no way pink and green!

There's no rush to get this project finished, so I add a few hexies when the urge takes me.

27th January 2013: I think I am done adding hexies - now for applique,picking a backing, polyester or cotton wadding (?), quilting (by hand?), binding.... not sure this will be a Q1 Finish :)

15.12.2013: it definitely wasn't a Q1 finish! But 18 months after I started it, this is now a finished project! Hand quilted!

This is a pretty runner. I love your colors and the way the hexies flow through the center of the runner. Great job!

Beautiful. Great choice for the binding and I love how the colors flow along the runner.
