Obviously, I'm not quite in step with sewing each project in the
Zakka-Along 2.0 according to the weekly schedule.
I've skipped some projects, while the project I just finished, was featured a few weeks back.
Nonetheless, I'm delighted to have completed my own version of
Ayumi's Trivet design from her book, Patchwork,Please!
I was greatly inspired by all the versions shared on the Flickr group.
What a fun and versatile design!
|Couldn't resist using the barn board my Dad recently brought me from the 100+ year old barn on his farm. Makes a wonderful background, don't you think?|
Seriously, the hardest part was deciding which print I would fussy cut for the center hexagon. ;o)
Once I had that sorted out, scraps were happily played with to form the surrounding hexie pieces.
Not a single fabric was repeated. I guess that says something about the quantity of scraps on hand. LOL
|Seemed a good choice to use a "frosty" themed fabric for "hot" project. ;o) Love the colour combo!|
Everything went smoothly, including binding. Just follow Ayumi's instructions and in no time you will have a trivet that will be a show stopper. ;o)
I highly recommend this beautiful project if you're in the mood for some scrappy sewing and paper-piecing fun. Thanks for another great design, Ayumi!
