Finally ... my summer English paper piecing hexagon project

After months of going round and round in circles as to how I was going to make hexagons look modern, I have finalised my plans for my summer English paper piecing hexagon project.  I'm using a Tanya Whelan dolce jelly roll from Saints & Pinners, some of the Saints & Pinners spectrum pack, some Kona White and a Kona pastels jelly roll (both from Simply Solids).  Here is block no 1 in Dolce Glamour pink and Freespirits fuschia:

  4. Not just hexagons! That is a stunning piece of work, I'm looking forward to seeing how the project progresses, your sewing is so neat (in the English way, tidy, not the American way, neat!!).
