Patchwork, Please! Trivet

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. 
Best part?
 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!

  3. Hi Katherine! This looks os sweet and fun! I was wondering if I have any 'picttures' to use in the middle and remembered just perfect fabric with mugs and pots - I guess I need some sewing just for fun. x Teje
