What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a lightweight cardboard for the paper piecing. It was a little hard to sew. For my next block I'll try a lighter weight. I'll try someone's suggestion of using the little cards that come in magazines to order subscriptions. This was a challenging block for me. I chose to fussy cut the fabric to get the design in the middle of my hexagon. This wasted a little more fabric and made it a little bit harder.
