P1205600

Ohhhhh it's fun Friday here!!! yay!!! 

And today, instead of making you suffer through a video of me explaining something, I've got a tutorial to share right here!!! 

So, before I start all of my rambling, let's get to it!!

Here's what we are making:

By Sally’s Angelworks

P1205599
 

Here’s a fun quick project you can whip up in an afternoon!! Thanks to my sweet, sweet friend and fabric dealer (seriously!! she is totally my dealer!!!), Julie from the Intrepid Thread for the Petal Pushers fabric! You can get some here!

Supplies:

6 fat eighths (different prints)

1 fat quarter (white or neutral)

1 fat quarter for binding

Backing fabric (I used bleached muslin)

Hexagon templates

(I am offering a kit for this in my store!!! yipeeeee!!!)

P1175483

Cutting instructions:

Cut 2  3.5”x5” rectangles out of each of the 6 prints.

With the leftover material, cut a 3.5” square out of each print. You will use this for the hexies!

 

The instructions for this table topper are really easy! (LOVE that!!) Here we go…

 

P1175484

Lay out your rectangles longways to see how you want to put them together. I sewed mine in the same order, but flipped the order on the opposite side of the topper. 

 

P1175485

Sew your rectangles together in two strips of 6 each.

 

  P1175486

Trim your shorter side of your neutral fat quarter piece down to 18.5”. This should be the length of your strips of rectangles.

 

P1175488

TIP: I don’t have anything larger than a 15” large cutting ruler, so I added a 3.5” ruler right next to my 15” one. Perfect!!! Make sure they are both straight!

 

 

  P1175489

Sew your rectangle strips to either side of your fat quarter (on the short sides).

 

 

P1175496

Here’s kind of a fun pic showing off one side…

 

P1175491

Gather your supplies for your hexies. I just googled hexie tutorials to make sure I was doing it correctly. I’m still in search of the perfect one…maybe that will make it onto a Fun Friday video…but just know that as long as you tack the corners, you’re good!!

 

 

P1185499

After you finished your hexies, iron them (with the paper still inside).

P1185501

Take the paper out and iron again.

 

P1185502

Lay them out how you think you’d like them to look!

 

 

P1185510

Sew the edges where the hexies meet together right sides together with a whipstitch.

 

 

P1185512

I got kind of carried away and didn’t sew the same edges together that I had originally put together, but I still liked this design, too!!

 

 

  P1185513

Before you sew your hexies down, let’s quilt this sucker…pin baste all three layers together.

 

  P1185525

I’m always inspired by my darling friend, Brooke’s table runner quilting, so I decided to do those same wavy quilting lines horizontally on my topper!!

 

  P1185527

After quilting, pin your hexie group down right where you want them.

 

  P1185531

  Sew in the inside of each hexie about ¼”.

Go back and sew around the very edge of the outline of the group. So cool!!
