This part doesn’t have to be difficult. If you don’t have a hexagon ruler you can do what I did and make your own. Mine is 5″ and made from a Christmas box. It works, but I’ll be ordering myself a set of templates soon because I wish I would have done them a little smaller.
I cut 6 pieces from each of the four fabrics. I have a round table and was looking to make a small topper.
Sewing hexagon strips together can be a bit tricky. They don’t line up like a straight line of quilt squares. I had to keep lifting and realigning as I went down the zig zag. It looked a bit messy at times but the finished project turned out just fine.
Once you’ve finished the top piece you’ll want to cut a piece of batting to match. I used a piece of scraps for this. You don’t have to do this part, but it gave it a bit of sturdiness and will serve a double function as a hot pad on Thanksgiving day!
Lay your topper on your piece of batting. You may want to pin it down in a few spots. Just cut the batting down to match.
