Spanish Lace and Beautiful Fabric
This is a repost from November 2012. I have given this little fabric box to my favorite (only) granddaughter who is half-Spanish (ie, her dad is from Spain). The lace has meaning for her now!
|The Bella Collection by Amanda Murphy for Blend Fabrics|
|7" squares fused with Pelon heavy interfacing; Coats variegated thread|
|Center square = box bottom. 4 blue squares, box sides. Quilt underneath for some eye candy.|
|7" square sides and bottom. Perfect for storing a new Bella Collection.|
OK. What else did I sew? This is my Honeycomb Table Runner (or can be 4 mats if used separately). This actually is a traditional Wagon Wheel block, but sewn very unorthodoxly.
|Sew 6 half-hexagons into a circle; press seams open|
|This is what it looks like turned and top stitched before joining to 3 more blocks|
|4 Block table runner on the back|
|Happy Hexie Table Runner: 29" x 54"|
I squeezed the very life out of this awesome collection. I fussy cut the rest of those motifs you see in the center of the table topper. Here they are waiting for some more shapes. I'm using 2" hexagon papers and these are English Paper Pieced.
