Hexies on the run

Any of you that follow me on Facebook or IG will have seen that I have been very busy in the last couple of weeks stitching up a whole pile of hexagons ready for a swap. This round of the Modern She Made Swap has hexagons as the theme and whilst I did try something different with my hexagon fabric box, I eventually settled on a  simple piece of EPP for my make for my partner.
 A table runner was one of her suggestions so fingers crossed this will suit somewhere in her home. It is certainly bright and bold so lets hope it will fit the bill.The whole runner is modelled by the Beloved by the way .

The fuschia coloured linen was a  real find in John Lewis ( sorry if this means  nothing to non UK readers). They seem to be getting a lot better these days so if you haven't been to your local store for a bit, do pop along and have a nosey around. You may get some very pleasant surprises. 
The back is  a mish mash of the fabrics used in the front and actually I think is quite fun and makes it pretty reversible.
so its off to the post office tomorrow for me and bye bye to the hexies. I really like this piece and will be sad to see it leave. 


  1. Looks gorgeous and I know what you mean about John Lewis

  2. Looks lovely! Great idea with the backing too.

  3. Yesterday I almost ordered a fat quarter bundle of the Art Gallery fabrics you have in this runner. Almost. It's good to see the size of the prints in person, because from the swatch online I thought they were smaller. Anyway, I do love your hexies and the background fabric.

  4. Pretty! Our JL isn't the best for fabric as Mandors is just up the road, but I might have to venture in, I have a £5 voucher burning a hole in my pocket ;o)
