    Simply Stunning!!! You have created a beautiful heirloom. I started one months ago and realized I don't have the patience to sit and do it for any great length of time so it is my Dr appt's project. Sometimes I can get 10-15 hexs done while waiting. Yes, it will take a long time at this rate but, it will be worth it. Yours is a great inspiration. thankyou for sharing.

    I never thought of putting lightweight pellon on the back of the quilt. I think I'll do that for the one my mother hand pieced a zillion years ago to stabilize it. She has a few places that are weak and I have been afraid of it coming apart after I finish it. Thanks for the idea.

    I am working on a GFG, too. I have 84 flowers made. I keep wondering what type of batting to use. Did you use flannel? I am also worried about the binding. Have you decided how to do that yet? Interested in any info. I love making the flowers. It has almost become an addiction.

    Your quilt is so pretty. The pink inbetween looks like bubbles. Very very nice.

    Beautiful quilt and nostalgic too...is that cardboard that I see in each of the hexagons? Can you just tell me in a nutshell how you did this to get all of the hexagons to look so crisp and correct? Thanks!

    Great idea. I never thought of that. I have one started that has some "short sides" so this will be a good fix. Thanks.
