I made my template out of a bit of heavy card stock that was leftover from making little recipe books. It works pretty well and they're a cute size (about 4"). I'm curious how well the template will hold up.
This seemed a great project for crumbs and scraps (especially the small bits of batting I have). The blocks are small enough not to need quilting. We'll see what moves me. The original plan was to machine stitch the back to the front, then hand-sew the hexagons together. I machine stitched the first two, to see how it went. Not bad at all.
I may switch to hand stitching. I've long been envious of my friends that knit - they can take their projects wherever they go. Depending on how quickly the front and backs pile up, this may be a on-the-go project. If that's the case, I may try a little hand-quilting on the pieces as well. Should be fun, regardless. Another new thing to learn!
