Making a hexagonal quilt is easy using the Diamond ruler by Darlene Zimmerman, while projects with this unique shape stand out from the crowd. We used this concept to create the attractive table toppers you can see below.
The finished size of the table toppers is about 21" in diameter.
We used the Eglantine Rose Set embroidery design for a large (5" x 7") hoop.
For the project we used the Diamond ruler by Darlene Zimmerman and cotton fabrics of different colors:
For each table topper:
Out of white fabric cut:
On your working table place the diamonds as shown.
Sew the diamonds together with a seam allowance of 1/4".
Attach the border strips.
Trim the ends.
Place the top on the polyester craft felt. Smooth with your hands and baste along the white border.
Embroider the Eglantine Rose designs.
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Spread your working piece over it.
Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted along the lines of the embroidery and then made stippling all over the mats.
After the quilting is finished, press the piece with heavy steam. Finish the raw edges with the binding.
