What are you most proud of? In the April BOM course, after you make the hexagons, you are instructed to sew them on to the backing fabric. I did pracitce that but it was very time consuming. Then I remembered the Pellon's Wonder Under that we used in the Stupendous Stitchery course.... so, instead of sewing these on the curtain, I cut out hexagons using the Wonder Under and then ironed them on to the fabric hexagons, and ironed those on to the curatins! Much faster. Though they looked nice, I decided after the fact to add a 1/4" border of stitching inside the edge of each hexagon. I may decide to add more later...but I like the way these look now. (I did this afer taking the pictures.)
