Block of the Month Project: Block #7

Block of the Month, Block 7

Our Craftsy Block of the Month project is back with a vengeance!  This hexi strip block was one of the April blocks, and it proved to be quite a challenge of our little trio's skill and perseverance.  The thing to note about this block is that all the hexagons are handstitched.  I've made hexagons before, and I used my smaller templates to create my hexis, which is why they're smaller than the others.  Amanda and Caitie did an admirable job with this block, even if they don't want to admit it.  What they will admit, however, is that they're not fans of handstitching or hexagons.  But they wouldn't have figured that out without this block, so it was good for something!

The second block pattern in April didn't appeal to us.  It also used hexagons, but the final look just wasn't working for us, so we decided to skip it and duplicate another block in the series later on, after we've seen and made them all and can pick a favorite.
