However, the whole reason I joined the BOM was to try new techniques or patterns, so I was pleased to find out that they are really easy to do. It was also nice to be hand-sewing rather than having the machine chugging along.
I made the first block for April - Hexagon Stripe - as guided by the project website, but decided for the second block to do a complete block of hexagons so I could really practice the skill. I am really pleased with it.
|Hexagon Stripe - hand-pieced and appliqued.|
|Random hexagons - handpieced block - will be trimmed to size when quilt is put together.|
