They are normally $12.99 but they are on sale until Saturday for $9.09 a piece. You can find them online at Jo-Ann but you will have to pay shipping. If they are not marked on sale in the store don't worry they are! The coupon is only for instore. I purchased them for $7.27 a piece and you can too if you get the ad mailed to your home.

Craftsy BOM blocks for April, block 1 completed. Hexagons by hand are impossible for me. I have difficulties sewing with my hands so I had to use my back up, my handy dandy sewing machine. I need to give her a name. But we will save that for another post.
