Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Funky, Cute, Traditional
Cotton fabric, threads; English paper piecing
What was your inspiration?
Amy of Craftsy's Block of the Month taught English Paper Piecing. I looked for other patterns to utilize the hexagons and found a Celtic design called "Fairy Ring", so I used that as my model. I used my machine to appliqu the hexagons to the background fabric with a decorative stitch on the outer side of the ring and a plain straight stitch on the inner side of the ring.
What are you most proud of?
The hexagons are crisp and the corners are nice.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient and take your time.
