    Hexagon table topper - cute and ... not too hard

    Someone on this board posted this link:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbmjFsusdQo

    The directions aren't extremely clear, but if you don't mind guessing a bit this is a quick project that - I think - looks really cool!

    It was VERY EASY until I got to binding the corners that are not right angles. Made it though and will certainly do it again.

    After Christmas last year I picked up Christmas fabric everywhere I found it cheap - the snowmen are from Walmart, but I'm not sure where the snowflake is from - it's a Moda print. I finally have enough of a stash to make small projects totally from what I have on hand.

    A large scale focus fabric that is not directional would be easier to work with.

    Just lovely.....very pretty fabric. Sometimes I find seasonal fabric a bit "too much", yours is seasonal without being OTT.

    I made these too, for Thanksgiving, but I skipped the binding. I sewed them right sides together, left an opening, and turn them right sides out. Then I stitched around the edges with a decorative stitch about a half inch in to give them an appearance of binding. They were so easy, I'm making more for Christmas!

    That is a great idea. I did it with some mug rugs as well. Thanks for the reminder.

    I see your point, but the link for youtube she posted, calls it a hexagon too. Does make one wonder, doesn't it!

    Nice job too, very cute!..

    This is too funny because I had the topic typed in as "Octagon" then checked the tute link and saw she had hexagon so I changed it. Then thought about it - knowing I counted sides and corners as I sewed and ... oh well! Wondered how many posts it would take before someone mentioned it.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    I plan on using that pattern. I do have the pattern. Any holiday material would work.
