This is the fourth row. I love the red rosette that is second from the left. I call it Jack in the Pulpit and it is in Book 3.
And this is the fifth row.
What next? Add these two rows to the three that I've already stitched together and stitch the final two rows.
Sadly I forgot to take a picture of the five rows stitched together. In addition I had to make half rosettes to fill in the sides and guess what? Forgot to take pictures of those as well! I used a blue/gold and taupe diamond print along with a creamy subtle print. Needles to say the middle hexagon is the same as that in all of the blocks in my quilt. It gives the whole quilt a more cohesive look. Using the same fabric for the middle hexagon in every rosette is a subtle way to make a bunch of very different blocks look like they belong together.
I know that many of you have commented on how complicated the Easier Than Pie & Beyond hexagons appear but I can honestly tell you that if you can sew a straight line and do a simply whip stitch you can make any or all of these designs!
Want another peek at the 2016 Quilt Along? Well want no more because here it is! I've added a round of white hexagons to frame the bird. There is more to come so stay tuned for pictures and instructions!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
