As I got all my Fall decor out a few weeks ago, I realized I didn’t have a table runner yet. I’ve made several machine free quilted ones for other holidays (here and here), but this time around I wanted to try something new…something different…something easy. This is what I came up with:
Step 3: I laid out the double-thickness hexagons out into the pattern I wanted. The grid overlay on this picture shows how I lined up the stitches. All the stitches that went through the point go the same direction and all the stitches that went through the flat side go the other direction.
When sewing the hexagons together, don’t sew off the edge of the fabric… see how this picture shows the stitches meeting in the corner, not extending past each other?
