Summer Journal: Hexies at Swimming Lessons

Caitlyn is kicking off her summer break with swimming lessons. For years, she insisted that she already knew how to swim. This spring, she admitted that she didn't know really, but ducklings do "as soon as they're born" and therefore young humans should be jealous. The half-hour she has in the pool for her lessons is the current highlight of her day.

The pool is warm, the community center welcoming. Waiting parents get these nifty bleachers to watch from.

Or, in my case, to work on a quilt block with some English paper pieced hexagons. I'm enjoying the portability of this project, but I'm not sure that I'll take up hand-piecing hexagons as a regular thing. Are there English paper piecing patterns that aren't all hexagons?
