Happy Hexagon Trivet ... The REAL project #12

Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  Although we are not officially there, the unwinding of summer is already falling into the steady routine of autumn.  Ahhh....  It is the kind of order and routine I like.  The break from the ordinary pace is appreciated, and needed, but getting back into a regular schedule always feels good to me.

 This little project was a fun one to make.  There was repetition and order in the piecing of the trivet.  It was done using the paper piecing patchwork technique, which I am happy to say, is getting easier for me to do.  Some time ago I had found a printed linen fabric with great illustrations of old advertisements.  The chickens seemed perfect for this project (maybe because it was the one that fit best in this space!).  I paired it with fabrics from the Dear Stella fabric collection left over from my Sister's Ten Modern Block of the Month project.
The project is quilted with machine stitching with following the hexagon shape around each layer.  I'm posting this project here (A Quilter's Table).

  1. I've seen a few of these trivets around recently but not one in a classic blue and white. It looks fantastic Cary! Is it a quilt-as-you-go or do you quilt it once completed?
