Seasonal Hexie Table Topper

Hello Everyone,
I've been so preoccupied with so many projects that I forgot to post project #3 for Henry Glass & Co.  I made a little table topper using Country Journey fabric by Jan Mott.  These are so easy to make, and they are a great hostess gift.

I began with 1-1/2" strips, and stitched them on every other side of the hexagon, and pressed toward the strip.

Then I lined up the 60 degree line on my ruler along the seam line, and trimmed two ends at a time.

I rotated the center and just kept trimming along the 60 degree line.

I just kept adding different sized strips until it reached about 20" across.

I have enough fabric to make one for every season.  I just need more time to make them.  The pattern is available HERE on my Etsy site.
Today, my goal is to finish making all of the blocks for Red Sky at Night.  However,  I may be enticed to go outside and enjoy our gorgeous weather.  Last year, we were snowed in for most of the month of February......this year nothing.....hardly a drop of rain or a flake of snow.  It was so warm yesterday, we ate lunch out on our deck. I love a good storm while we hunker down in the cabin with a roaring fire, and a pot of soup on the stove.  I hope and pray we aren't going to be entering another drought cycle in California. We still have a couple of months when we can expect more rain.  Let's hope for some gully washers.


  1. Well, this is lovely :-) What's not to love about Autumn designs. Great use of this fun fabric!
    Enjoy that little respite in the cold weather. We are all hoping there is more rain to nurture our state. But fun to have a break!

    1. Thank you Loris. It has been such a mild winter. We aren't use to this. --Lynn

  2. What an interesting use for that house fabric!

  3. I love that topper. I have a small glass topped table by my chair and I make toppers for every season to put under the glass. This will be perfect!

  4. Sweet table topper! I can see ow they could be addictive!

  5. This is sewn a little differently than in your Heartfire pattern. I think this might be quicker. Do you think either way will work with the same results? I'm ready to start Heartfire finally, believe it or not! Lol!
