I've been piecing more hex blocks. I can't decide if I should stop for a while and clean the clutter or continue piecing. My next group would be Halloween inspired. I LOVE Halloween and Day of the Dead. I'll have to think about that.
They say that practice makes perfect. I have definitely decided that I like the flip and sew method of piecing better than other methods.
There is no hit and miss with piecing and I had a little difficulty in learning the technique so that I didn't end up with a triangle area and no way to fill it.
When I first wanted to actually piece a CQ block I searched the net and bought just about every book there is. Diane had posted on her blog a tutorial on her piecing method and it just clicked with me. Her tutorial was my reference for piecing these blocks.
Every single Crazy Quilter and Embroidery Stitch blogger that I have met has been gracious and friendly and willing to share knowledge and advice and I thank you all so much.
Whether I piece more blocks now or not, let the embellishing begin!!
