I finished up a runner for my dining room. I started it 2 or 3 years ago and the top has been sitting in my closet since then. I found it the other day and was reminded how much I love this fabric line, and I was so close to being done, so why not finish it?
I quickly got the quilting and binding done, so it’s ready for its close up.
Seriously, what took me so long? I love these fabrics, though I can’t remember the name of the fabric line. I am assuming it was done by Basic Grey, as it contains a few of their “Grunge” prints. If anybody remembers the name of the line, please leave it in the comments . . . .
This runner was published in my “On the Run” book, quite a few years ago. It was when hexagons were first starting to surface, along with a technique for assembling them that didn’t require y-seams. In the photo below, you can see the runner is assembled using half-hexagon blocks, which are sewn into rows. It’s so much easier that way!
This runner is cut from a Charm Pack and does not require a special ruler. You will also need a bit of background and some binding fabric.
I could easily make a few more of these. I need to go check my Charm pack stash . . . . . .
