April BOM (part 2)

What are you most proud of? I'm pretty chuffed with the hexies and all the hand sewing involved. Is quite addictive. I can see the attraction in making an entire quilt using this method. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I had my time again, I think I would hand appliqu the teapot on to the background fabric rather than using my machine. That's primarily just because I think I can be more accurate by hand rather than machine (all those turning corners, too many places for little inaccuracies!) the paperpiecing I found quite easy. I just traced Amy's pattern onto hard cardboard, then used that as a template to cut out a stack using paper. The paper I used was from an old calendar, it was thicker than normal photocopy paper but flexible enough too.
