Summer Sampler 2019 :: Scattered

I'll confess that I took one look at this week's Summer Sampler block, saw that it was made of half-hexagons, and audibly sighed, "oh no." I mean I'm ok with the hexies, but there were SO many pieces (80 to be exact!), that I kind of dreaded it all. Designed by Faith/Fresh Lemons Quilts, Scattered is an awesome looking block though, so I started in, happy that I could use my Hex N More ruler instead of a printed template and that I could cut my hexies 95% out of project scraps. All that helped alot!

And as for piecing, half-hexagons are a breeze. With all the pieces, careful and consistent pressing was required, but even that went well enough. Gotta say, I think Scattered is my new favorite block!
