    I love your quilt, I would love to try to make one too but I imagine it would be a little too difficult for someone who is just beginning.

    I'm using the English paper piecing on one that I have started helps pass the time when setting in Doctors office when I have to take my husband or setting at home watching tv at night. You can buy the hexagons online and they are reusable. I have done several flowers and waiting to get enough done before I sew them together, will wait til I get ready to sandwich it before I remove the paper

    The hexis I use of made of card stock...I have read where some are using the blow-ins that fall out of magazines too. I reuse them until they are too soft (I fold mine as I stitch hexis together as the piece gets larger). The web site is www.ciaspalette.com. I print several copies and MikeyB and I sit together and cut them out =D
    This morning I finished sewing on the third border. I took a pic with the proud owner, but she was making the weirdest face...said it was too heavy LOL =D

    THANKS FOR THE PHOTOS OF THE DETAILS! (Beautiful quilt!!!!)

    Just absolutely beautiful. What patience and persistence on your part. Keep up the good work. It is so nice and will be an heirloom. Hope you are keeping a journal while making it.

    Nice work and great patience. Tho it can be fun to sit and quietly stitch. Something we have forgotten with our superduper machines.

    I commend all who do the hexagons and the size of yours, I am sure, was very time consuming. You have done a good job.

    Your handwork is just beautiful and perfect. I'm hoping someday to make one of those too.

    Looks great! I am doing some of these GFG flowers, then stitching each one to a block, then I will put the blocks together. These GFG flowers are a good carry along project, or when you are traveling, & need something to do with your hands. I got quite a few done last spring, when we went out to CA & back. Long drive, was glad I had something small to work on. Aren't they fun!

    WOWWWWW!! I want to try one using the cardboard. I started one years ago by hand and gave up because it was so tedious. This looks much easier. Thanks for sharing, its beautiful.
