Hexi block (kinda!)

Like my Hexi Block?
Want to know how I did it?
I painted it of course, but then you already knew that didn't you :D

The back view shows how I stitched around each shape. Added some embroidery...

...and flipped the edges of the backing to the front to do the binding.

One day I am going to a hexagon quilt the correct way. Maybe like this one.

**This is part of my own personal challenge to create and learn a bit more about traditional quilt blocks while adding my own twist, as described here. I am following the free Block of the Month classes on Craftsy as my guide.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
