Soupçon block number 7, Part 5 border done

Getting there, this is block #7. Only two more to go after this one.
Here I fussy cut and pieced a whole bunch of 1/2 inch hexagons and I am very proud of myself !

I think the more subdued colouring of this border works with the drama of the polka dot edging in part 4. And the intricacy of all those hexie flowers works because this part 4 border was not made of pieced squares as was the case with previous blocks.
