Hexing Around Block

One of my latest projects was to give this tutorial a try.  I pulled out my scrap bin and found some strips that would work (they range between 1.25” and 2” wide).  I had a bit of grey solid left over from the Unlinked quilt and I used that as a background.

I love this block – it’s fast and impressive once it’s finished.  If you try it, I advise you to use the 60-degree angle lines on your ruler the way the tutorial says to.  I tried one scrappy block before this one thinking that I could just eye-ball the cutting and by the time I finished the block it was just all outa whack. 
I made this quilted pillow out of my second block and it’s my new favorite reading pillow.  Love it.
