I got my blocks of the month done early this month! Woohoo! Here's what I've been working on.
First up, the Craftsy block of the month
used English paper piecing. I started on some hexagons a while ago
, but I haven't gotten far enough to learn the entire process, so I was very excited to finally learn how to put it all together. It's actually a lot easier than it looks.
One of my favorite parts was breaking out some invisible thread for machine appliqueing the hexagons to the fabric. This was my first time to use it, and I can definitely say that I'll do it again!
Next up, the HST block of the month
- pinwheels! Seriously, who doesn't love pinwheels? I can never get enough of these!
Lastly, some Hexing Around blocks for my circle in do. Good Stitches
. These certainly weren't quick to put together, but I'm really loving how they turned out.
My color was pink, so I got to pull a bunch of scraps left over from my string quilt to get these done. Now if I could just finish my April cottage, I'll be ready for May!
