I also wanted to share my first blue hexie block pieced. I have started on the second one, and have pieced a couple hexies together at a time to get these blocks going again.
I seem to be doing okay with sewing at the machine and some hand sewing, plus a little pressing, but I haven't tackled rotary cutting yet. I'll need to be able to do that in order to make some progress on a couple of other quilts I really want to work on soon. Perhaps in a couple of weeks. I'll be able to use my Sizzix to cut the strips for the border on Celtic Solstice, so that's very helpful.
