Blocks #4 and #5: All Color, No Neutral

I fell in love with this pillow when I saw it on Sew Mama Sew’s pillow month.  I knew I just had to give the pattern a try, so I figured out how to do it as a 12″ block and rainbowed it up:

Rainbow Crosses

I tried to get the fabric to match up across the seams, but obviously I failed pretty miserably.  I didn’t hate it enough to redo the block though, and quickly moved on to Hexagons:

Paper Pieced Hexagons

This was only my second attempt at English Paper Piecing.  I really enjoy sewing by hand, but don’t always enjoy how long it takes.  This block was just the right amount of time (a whole quilt of this would obviously be too much!).  I used this tutorial from The Sometimes Crafter to make the block, because I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel if I didn’t have to.  It was a great tutorial and super easy to follow.  I must admit, I have a little bit of Hexagon love right now.  I might need to applique them onto some little girl clothing to cure myself.
