Appliqued Hexies and Robins
These hexie flowers have now all been appliqued to background squares, which have then been trimmed to size, ready for piecing together. These will form the main part of the Red Robin Runner, designed by The Birdhouse Patchwork Designs...
...I've used a piece of linen for the runner ends rather than the fabric that was included in the kit (I'll use that for something else!) and added a piece of lightweight interfacing on the back as linen can be a bit tricky to cut and sew with. Each end of the runner has been hand embroidered and hand appliqued. I've used an ordinary pencil to trace the curved outline of the runner ends. Once the runner is pieced together, it can be layered ready for machine quilting.
