Spring Table Topper from GDITC Nundle

In March I was lucky to be able to attend my third consecutive Girls Day in the Country at Nundle, hosted by the lovely Kerry swain from Cottage on the Hill. Our guest tutor for the second year was Lynette  Anderson and here's Lynette displaying our project for the day. A spring table topper with lots of paper pieced hexagons and 3 embroidered bunny ones....
My swap gift, kit and mug from Kerry on our table when
 we went in, also my completed project from last year
 tucked in beside the brown paper bag......
This is the kit I received on the day but I didn't really
 like the bright red or the dog/cat prints very much,
I just didn't feel excited about the combination....
I had a look at Kerry's pop up shop and found a couple of
 other coordinating fabrics that I was much happier with
and so the piecing began. The centre section came together
 really quickly because I decided to piece it all together
 first before I do the stitcheries....Such a Rebel I am! Ha Ha!
My Mojo has been away on a whirl wind adventure
somewhere and I think it's finally back, needless
to say when it's back it is back big time!
I have spent the last couple of nights stitching the last of
 the triangular hexagons together, they really do
come together quickly when I am on a roll....
I decided to join the last 6 together before I stitched
 them to the main table topper section....
They really were a lot of work and so worth
the effort now it is all together.....
I have completed one of the stitchery hexagons so far and
 think this little flower looks sweet as.....
The bunny still needs his little patch added....
Isn't that just the cutest little cottontail :)
I am now auditioning fabrics for the outer triangles and
 binding, I have the plum/red colour on the left or the
brown, the same as the centre hexagon on the right....
What do you think??????
Or maybe I will go with both colours, red triangles
and brown binding....Hmmm....Decisions Decisions!
I think it could work and I could do the red patches on the
bunnies as well, maybe I will finish the other two
stitcheries off first and then decide....
I also have some more of the pretty blue floral in the large
 hexagons so I could do brown triangles and blue binding.....
Oh what to do?
Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate

Susan said...

You are a good girl, it's looking great. I think a little plum will be a nice contrast. I fear mine may not make it out the bag it's been in since March (very naughty).
