April Hexi Stripe BOM

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Well I did this particular block a little different than Amy's. The reason I did it my way was because I hate hand sewing. So what I did was use my Accuquilt Go for Hexagons and I applied some fusible batting. Then I machined appliqued it to my background fabric using a blanket stitch with black and white variegated thread. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not but I really do like it. Now on to the next one. Also I didn't use as many hexagons so I ended up doing them a little bigger which I am very happy with.

beeboop71 asked:
I just joined and was looking at the BOM and when I saw April's I squirmed when I saw hand sewing was involved. I'm glad I saw your post because I think I am going to do the same thing I too have the accuquilt. Thanks for sharing your idea. Love the color choice too. Great job!
gmatloff answered:
Thank you yeah the Accuquilt worked out really great. Can't wait to see your blocks.
