What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a lightweight cardboard for the paper piecing. It was a little hard to sew. For my next block I'll try a lighter weight. I'll try someone's suggestion of using the little cards that come in magazines to order subscriptions. This was a challenging block for me. I chose to fussy cut the fabric to get the design in the middle of my hexagon. This wasted a little more fabric and made it a little bit harder.

Thank-you. I found this block to be quite a challenge. I don't sew by hand very much so I guess I needed the practice. I did everything from poke my finger so hard with the needle that it hurt for days to accidentally sewing the block onto my pyjamas that I was wearing! Getting a compliment makes it seem sweeter!

Look at you! Two columns, two colors, two backgrounds and fussy cutting

I have not been able to get the instructions for this April block. Can you help please? I have been trying for about an hour but no success
