    I am posting a few closer up pics to answer a few board members questions...I hope this is a start =D This quilt started as a practice piece from scraps that came from a quilt I did for my niece and then grew and grew =D I learned the how-tos from watching videos on YouTube and then just went for it. I have learned along the way and can keep learning. Soon I will be hand quilting it...will be looking for the board to help guide me through that =D

    2nd side of one of the final borders.

    Hexis are a bit larger than a quarter...a good size for beginning. Not to small, but not too big to handle it.

    I hand basted the fabric to thick paper hexis with cheep thread (you will be wasting that threads)

    So pretty, I have never really even looked up how to do this type of quilt. I will have to check out you tube...It would really be good for taking along in the car to have something to work on...you just baste the fabric onto the paper? I will look up the video. thanks so much, love the colors...

    You GFG-makers are NUTS! This is insane! How long does it take you all to make these?

    They are stunning, but... yikes! I'm not sure I can fathom how long it must take!

    (You all know that I write all of this in complete admiration, right?)

    I love it! Mine has been an when in the car for a long time, before I go to bed, and now I plan to take it to my Dr appointments. My mother in law says I am crazy, but I think everyone should make at least one. Funny part is, I learn how to do mine from YouTube as well, LOL.

    each is the size of a quarter!

    Gorgeous, love your colors and design.
    Did you make or buy your hexagon paper?
    I'm playing with one now made with some scrap, I just love doing it. I also learned from YouTube.

    I have made 2 of this pattern. But I hand piece not pp/ PP is too much trouble when I can put the hexes together an hand piece, no pulling papes out. Gave one to my DGD when she was a year old. Washed so many times you would not believe and still a pretty quilt. First thing she packed when she got married last spring. lol
