I started a quilt with 1" hexagons well over 25 years ago. I finished 3 years ago. I agree with Ragamuffin that larger hexies would be better and you would still have "the bang for your buck" in keeping your hands busy. Also, there is the added bonus of rythmic hand motion is proven to lower blood pressure and stress level. Your project would be bigger but you would have moe sufac to embellish or embroider.

Thank you all for the suggestions. Hairquilt, I would get very funny looks at work if I used a pacifier at work. I finally came to some decisions. Embroider (or maybe paint) after it's done, also going to do the suggestion of the larger hexagons. Just got the papers for 2" side hexagons, so going to do that. Still debating on actual flowers or just be random (kind of like an I Spy quilt). I think for that, I'll let the charm squares speak to me as I baste them onto the paper hexagons on how to lay them out.
