    Oh my, this does look nice! You are sure doing a nice job. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    Yours is a real beauty!
    Grendelskin, Thanks so much for posting this video. Me FGF is almost finished and I was considering cutting off all off the little tabs on the edges and putting a straight binding on my quilt. Not, this video made it so easy and I'm not losing the effects. This is a great video. Thanks again.

    The antique ones I've seen have one of 2 methods. One is called birthing or pillowcase style. The other is a modified version of the same. You make a batting, strip of backing and top sandwich, sew along the edges of the hexies and cut away the excess, and turn it right side out then hand sew (!) a center backing panel over the rest of the back. What I have NOT seen is any binding. These edges, I'm told, are called "knife edge".
