Having bought a beautiful piece of cotton fabric with little strawberries printed all over, I wondered what to do with it!? (Most patchworkers will know that impulse – buy now – then wonder what to do with it) Eventually after much doodling in a sketch pad, I decided it would make a perfect quirky little table runner and mats – Just right for those cream teas!
Not wanting it to be just rectangular I decided on a elongated hexagon shape and so set about creating a little table set. The centre panels are made from cotton canvas with a cotton strawberry appliquéd by hand. Once I had trimmed to shape I hand quilted through the layers of fabric, wadding and backing, creating another unique piece of patchwork!
