    I started out making a small hexagon throw for myself for the evenings when it's cool. Then I decided I wanted to make it a square/rectangle and one thing led to another and it just grew. There are about 3500 hexagons. The second picture is a small doll quilt I made with the leftovers.

    I cut out a ton of these probably 50 or more - for a tote bag I made my daughter. I HATE working with them. PM if you'd be interested in taking them off my hands....I'll send you pictures of what I have but I was actually going to throw them away!

    Just a few hexagons, huh?
    I think that's more than a few. How long did it take you?

    How big are they? I'm waiting to get old and gray to start one of these. Oh wait a minute--I am gray, just getting old--not there yet.
    Anyway--it is a gorgeous quilt--even the doll quilt! Thanks for sharing.
