April BOM block

What are you most proud of? I couched yarn with a zigzag stitch to make the butterfly bodies. It took me a while to get the tension just right, but once I did, the work went fast. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with these blocks. I came up with several possibilities (including a dog and a rather odd looking bird) before I settled on butterflies. Play with your hexagons!
