In this month, we continue working with my favorite tear-less method of foundation paper piecing. When I was originally designing the block, I started with much smaller hexagons that were traditionally pieced. I quickly realized it was much harder to make a traditionally pieced hexagon accurately and that most normal people wouldn't want to make so many tiny ones!
I hope you enjoy the version that made it into the final quilt. I'm so in love with the colorway for this row from the mutli colorway. Give me hot pink and ochre any day!
Have fun this month!
Week 1: Cutting the fabric Week 2: Sewing the blocks Week 3: Sewing the blocks Week 4: Sewing the blocks into rows
Monthly Sponsor & Prize
This month's giveaway sponsor is Quilter's Dream! They will be giving away a package of batting to help you finish up your quilt! The batting I currently use is their 80/20 cotton/poly blend. I love this batting because it's easy to hand-quilt through (when I want to) and doesn't hold a crease when your quilts are folded (which a lot of mine are!). I've heard a lot of great things about their Dream Bamboo batting, so I'm thinking about giving that a try soon too!
