Craftsy BOM April blocks

What are you most proud of? English paper piecing seemed too tedious at first with all that hand sewing, but after making these, they are super easy and a great way to use up small scraps. I just brought the little hexies with me to my kids' lessons and worked on them while I waited for them. The time flew by! What advice would you give someone starting this project? For the second block, I didn't want to follow the teacher's design. I looked at what other people did to get some ideas. I didn't really know what I was going to do so I just started using whatever scraps I had. In hindsight, I should have planned the scrap choices for the flower better so I didn't have two purple hexagons in the same flower since the purple is the center.
