I decided I wanted to do some sewing and have been wanting to try a runner with smaller hexagons.
This one will be a present. The fabrics were from my friend kelly, from the rocky mountain collection.
I used a 1" hexagon template and made a card stock template. I traced that right onto the fabric with a pen and cut them out.
I think the seam is about 1/4", maybe smaller, I am eye balling it;) No paper piecing, just cut and sew, while I watch tv.
This is the main block. Each one will have the lighter green around it. Once those are done, I can get a better idea of the size and shape I want. I fussy cut the outer red hexagons, so the flower is centered as best as possible.
I tried two layouts. This is with points touching.
This is with a more squared off look. Not sure which one I like better? How about you?
This one will just be a small table topper, so not making it too big. I will decide after I go around these two, if I need a third section.
