I had a lot of fun putting Genevieve's block together. As I posted earlier in a comment, the first time I tried English paper piecing, I really did not like it. Way too fiddly and (the real reason, even though I hate to admit this about myself) -- too hard to make perfect! The second project was tolerable -- and by the end of it, I grudgingly admitted that I had gained a new skill. This third time, I loved it, and found it absolutely true that I could sit in front of the TV and zip those hexagons together:)
Finally, I had a lot of fun with the flannel, which I previously hadn't used. I will say that the colours are much more vibrant than they appear here -- and the solid-looking bits have a small print to them. Although this block looks a bit 'cool', I remember lots of warm bursts in the original photo, so hopefully it will be a nice balance.
Can't wait to see the other blocks, and good luck to everybody who's trying this out for the first time. xo Meg
