    I searched the Internet for instructions and followed the link below. It really is very easy and addicting. There are also tutorials on this board about English paper piecing. I use the precut hexagons from paperpieces.com. They can be used over and over. They also have instructions on how to put them together.

    agree that it is addicting! I am already trying to decide what hand-pieced quilt to start next.

    I also machine piece, but I love having a hand project at the same time!

    I'm sure you'll need a lot, and there suddenly seems to be a revival or something with this quilt because I'm seeing a lot of posts about the GFG (which is nice because I'm working on one too and sometimes I need motivation) but here's a link for the "show and tell" or quilt a long for my GFG. I have the pattern I'm using on there as well as pictures of my rosettes. Mine are twice the size of yours mostly because I would like to finish it.

    and make sure your scissors that you use on the airplane can't be considered a weapon. I read about someone that was working on one and the took her little tiny scissors because they could be a weapon.

    Plan on about 7 to 8 rows of 8 or 9 per row, for starters.
    Your layout may have half rosettes at the ends of some rows. When you measure your hexagon pieces, are you measuring the length of one side? Cutting size or finished size? (don't try to measure across the center, it is too confusing)
