August UFO -- Hexagons


By the time we got to August, this bag was nearly empty. Back in January it contained my samples from a strip-pieced hexagon class.  But I finished up the lap quilt months ago  when I needed it for a special gift.

This meant I just had a table runner to complete.  I pinned the layers for quilting and decided that a simple stitch-in-the-ditch would suffice.






But all that open muslin was too tempting to ignore, so I let myself do a little more…..

All that quilting sure did add the pop that was needed. Beautiful runner. Judy C in NC
