Here's a pic of a table topper I finished this evening, made with 1930s reproduction and ticking fabrics. It measures 20.5" x 12". It was made using a Small Hickory Nut template set made by Hickory Hill Quilts. The template set is basically a two-piece set that has a small hexagon that sets inside a hexagon ring. You use the outer ring "shell" template to cut the backing fabric and the inner "nut" hexagon template to cut the batting and focus fabric. Then you layer them and fold the edges of the backing fabric over the edge of the focus fabric and stitch down with a straight-stitch. You then stitch the blocks together with a zig-zag stitch.
Making these little blocks is addictive and fun once you get the hang of them. This topper is going to go on the bedroom nightstand. I need to get busy making another one for the nightstand on the other side of the bed now.
