It is taking a lot of time with the cutting, stitching, pressing, trimming, sewing etc. It seems to be more work then my Dear Jane quilt was!! But I am loving how it is looking so far.

It's a large queen or a smallish king size quilt (I'm not really sure I just started working on it without any directions) made with ~2800 1" hexagons. I was thinking about just binding it as is, but I am not sure it that would work since the hexagons are so small.

I need some ideas of easy things I can suggest for them to do. We are planning a spring bazaar to raise money for air conditioner repairs for the church. I am afraid what they make will look like kids made them! Any suggestions for things to make or for ideas leading this diverse group will be greatly

Also I am in Australia and wondering about the American quilting shows on tv. Are they worth subscribing to over the internet?
Hope you can help me
