Love this corner of my dining room :) I made a little hexagon mat to add to this prettiness because I decided that worrying about whether the orchid pot will leak onto my buffet was not fun. I don't know how it would leak when there are zero holes in the pot, but that's how my brain works. Worrying about the dumbest things ever.
I took a measurement of the pot with my hand because I'm super precise, and I decided something around the length of my hand would be perfect. My hands are 6" long (one day I got bored and measured my hands and feet... FYI, the latter are 8.5" long), and that's what the hexagon mat ended up being. Math!
All the fabrics and batting came from the scraps on or around my cutting table. That's how messy it is right now :) I cut little 60° triangles, sewed them together, slapped it on some batting and backing fabric, then bound it in some extra binding I had leftover from the wedding quilt. It took me less than an hour, even with hand sewing the binding.
Also, do you see the lovely autumnal leaves outside??? The birch trees are turning a beautiful yellow, and the other trees around our house are turning a gorgeous orangey red. Love this time of year :)
