Hudson River and honeycomb piecing

2 things:

Item number 1: The Hudson River, and what about the Hudson River you may ask? Well, I'm in a group show benefiting the Hudson River Conservation. A bunch of artists were asked to create art on totes by Open Space Gallery in Beacon, New York. Open Space was opened by the great designers behind Thundercut. Check them out if you have a chance.

The Tote Bag show opens this Saturday in Beacon, NY.
Open Space Beacon|510 Main Street, Beacon NY
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 12th. 6-9pm, Show runs April 12th-May 3rd

Item number 2 on the agenda...
Honeycomb Piecing, I call it honeycomb piecing because it looks like honeycombs. I think its actually hexagonal piecing, using the english paper piecing method. I've recently been venturing into different methods of applique for my new pieces and its been very exciting teaching myself these new methods. Here are a couple of tutorials I found most helpful, just in case you wanted to get started on your own piecing project.
