    Done, Done, Done....well almost

    I started a GFG for myself last summer using 1 1/2 hexis. My husband decided this spring it would be cool if I made one using smaller hexi's out of the scraps for our granddaughter. So I dropped everything and started on this in about April. These are 1" hexi's and the quilt top is about 38 x 52 - perfect for a crib. The top is now officially all done. Just have to sandwich and finish it off. But the slow handsewing part is done.

    Beautiful and all by hand!!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Very nicely done. Love GFG. Have done a few pieces but other things got in the way. Will have to take up again after seeing yours.

    My thoughts exactly! This quilt is just beautiful but I'm be in a knot if I tried to hand sew such tiny pieces. My hat's off to you! I can't wait to see the larger version!
