Although my machine has been idle lately, I've still been doing some stitching.
  I still had basted 1/2 inch hexagons remaining from a previous project, so I just had to stitch them together!

I used Thermore batting - super low loft, and great for table items.  I turned the backing edges in, and hand stitched the edges.
  I machine stitched the hexagons, with matching, and variegated King Tut thread, colour #918.  
It is now sitting on my small dining table, with a small vase of lily-of-the-valley, adding lovely scent to the room.

The whole project is just 16 inches across!

Check out all the creativity at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. Holy wow, um I am glad you stated the finished teensy didn't register until I read that, and then I looked and looked...and looked some more. Beautiful. A fitting mat for Lily of the Valley, lovely scent indeed.

  2. what a delightful little piece!! The smallest hex I've attempted is 3/4" -- not ready for 1/2" yet!!


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
