Zakka Along - Happy Hexagon Trivet

Before the Phoenix flew off with my Happy Hexagon Trivet I managed to take a few photos! I'm very pleased with how it turned out. 


The trivet is quite hypnotic in black and white and I really enjoyed making it. It's my second paper-piecing project and the hardest part of it was removing the paper when I finished sewing it! Ayumi Takahashi's instructions in Patchwork, Please! are really good. The binding instructions in particular were very clear.




The back is fun too, it' not perfect but it looks quite good!
