    Finally have it finished

    I started this quilt last summer in June and finally finished the hand quilting on it last night. This one sure was a test to my nerves believe me. I will never attempt one like this again....my hands hurt...LOL But I love it. The whole thing I done by hand....every last hexagon.

    Beautiful, wonderful job on it. No way would I sew anything but bindings by hand. Glad there are others doing it.

    Great job, Donna! It is just stunning! I only hope when (and IF) I finish my GFG, it looks that great!! Mine will also be completely hand-sewn and quilted
