What are you most proud of? Well I did this particular block a little different than Amy's. The reason I did it my way was because I hate hand sewing. So what I did was use my Accuquilt Go for Hexagons and I applied some fusible batting. Then I machined appliqued it to my background fabric using a blanket stitch with black and white variegated thread. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not but I really do like it. Now on to the next one. Also I didn't use as many hexagons so I ended up doing them a little bigger which I am very happy with.

Thank you.

Very pretty! I'm not looking forward to the hand sewing for this one...

I know that is why I did mine on machine.

I just joined and was looking at the BOM and when I saw April's I squirmed when I saw hand sewing was involved. I'm glad I saw your post because I think I am going to do the same thing I too have the accuquilt. Thanks for sharing your idea. Love the color choice too. Great job!

Thank you yeah the Accuquilt worked out really great. Can't wait to see your blocks.

Very nice variation! The larger size works very well with the fabric scale and is really pleasing to the eye.
