    My Grandmother just turned 88, and asked me to make her a table topper for her flowers. She used to *love* golf, so I played with my new 60 degree ruler and made this. Her kitchen table is really small, so it'll fit perfectly.

    Now, what color to bind it in?
    It's right now on the black chair, but I'm not sure black is a good option.

    And it really is a true hexagon, it's my photography skills that are lacking.

    I'd use a dark brown or one of the blues.

    I would go with the blue. Definitely best for the front and would also work for the back

    Yes, I like the blue, then it's great from both sides.

    I would go for a light blue, as well. This would fit the front and the back. Finding a green tone which fits both sides might be a tad more difficult.
