And like Natalie Imbruglia, I'm torn.
I love the ease of machine piecing these little guys! This is my sample block (it's in my colors: gray, yellow, and teal, and I get to keep it!) for the 4x5 Bee. I'll be making 5 more of these blocks in other color combos for the others in my "beehive."
But I'm also such a huge fan of taking a project on the go, that I love the idea of hand-stitching hexagons! In fact, I used one of Sew Sara's hexagon kits from her shop
Edit: Sara has relisted a bunch o' hexagon kits in her shop! She has also generously offered FREE shipping on hexie kits with the coupon code LINDSAYSEWS.
I felt all warm and fuzzy stitching by hand. Plus, it's better for social sewing (i.e., not locking myself in my craft room all eve).
So, I'll be prepping some hexagon templates and fabrics squares to take to the lake this weekend for hand-stitching. But I'll machine-stitch my 4x5 bee blocks, because it's just so fast!
Speaking of fast, I am loving my GO! Baby for cutting out these hexagons. And if you are interested in a GO! Baby giveaway, enter to win a cutter and 3 dies at Mary's blog by Wednesday at 11:59pm (EST) for your chance to win!
