What are you most proud of? The little story this block tells. I overlapped some of the hexis and they came together nicely. I also used one of my leftover HST as a hexi for the flower pot. I'm planning on making it a wall hanging for my office as a reminder of this course instead of putting it into my BWR quilt. Guess I'll have to make another BWR hexi block ;-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Trim your accent pieces (fence/fence top) after you add them. My block ended up being 12 1/4". Let yourself go and have fun!

you did great on the hexies! I didn't like doing them very much myself. I'm glad Amy put them in, because I was curious about them. Keep up the good work!

Hey I recognize that cat fabric! I have that fat quarter too...haven't used it yet. This is really fun! I like the little picture you made.

Thanks! There's another BOMer Di4N4 who has it too! She's used the kitties much more than I. You should check out her work. Hope you have fun using yours!
